Research Assistant (x2) - 035262

Location: Gilmorehill Campus / Main Building
Job Family: Research & Teaching
Position Type: Full Time
Range: £29,174 - £32,817 per annum.

We have 2 opportunities for Research Assistants to contribute to a project "Developing an E-Mental Health Detection Tool for Early-Stage Psychosis in the Community" working with Professor Peter Uhlhaas. The project is funded by the Wellcome Trust and a joint project with King's College London (PI: Dr. Paolo Fusar-Poli). The project aims to develop an online-tool for detecting emerging psychosis and involves the assessment of young people with mental health difficulties.

The successful candidates will, in conjunction with and under the guidance of the Principal Investigator, plan and conduct assigned research individually or jointly in accordance with the project deliverables and project.

Specifically the post requires SCQF Level 10 [Honours degree] in a relevant subject or a cognate discipline, or equivalent and specialist theoretical and practical knowledge of psychological research as applied to mental health.

These posts have funding up to 31 May 2022.

Professor/Reader/Senior Lecturer - 033480

Location: Gilmorehill Campus/Main Building
Job Family: Research and Teaching
Position Type: Full-Time
Salary Range: £52,560 - £59,135 per annum 

Salary will be within the Professorial range and subject to negotiation

The Institute of Neuroscience & Psychology is seeking to make a Professor/Reader/Senior Lecturer appointment. You will conduct and lead on a program of world-class research in the area of Cognitive Neuroscience, whilst contributing to high quality teaching.

The main criteria being research excellence and, depending on the level of appointment, a potential or proven track record to build an internationally competitive research group. The research programme should align with the strategic objectives of the Centre of Cognitive Neuroimaging (CCNi) by using state of the art neuroimaging techniques in different combinations.

You will enhance the Centres already substantial international reputation in the area of brain, cognition and behaviour. The centre brings together researchers developing and applying new Cognitive Neuroimaging Techniques and hosts a state-of-the art brain imaging facility (3T-fMRI, MEG/EEG, TMS/TES), with links to nearby 7T-fMRI. It is part of a multidisciplinary platform, crossing fundamental, social and cognitive neuroscience.

Applications are invited from candidates with an appropriate track record of academic achievement, and a track record in neuroimaging using at least two modalities (EEG/MEG, fMRI, TMS/tDCS/tACS), whereby the use of multimodal approaches (e.g. fMRI-EEG, TMS/tES-EEG) and the potential to bridge across disciplines of our platform is a plus.

Job Family: Research and Teaching
Position Type: Full-Time

Full-time Permanent Faculty Positions: Centre for Social, Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience (cSCAN) at the Institute of Neuroscience & Psychology (INP), University of Glasgow, Scotland

The Centre for Social, Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience (cSCAN) is actively pursuing multiple research appointments at all levels (Lecturer/Assistant Professor, Senior Lecturer/Associate Professor, Reader/Associate Professor, Professor/Full Professor) to enrich our internationally connected research-intense environment and world-leading reputation in social perception, social cognition, social neuroscience, social interaction and communication, with an emerging leadership in behaviour change. cSCAN members operate in a research-rich capacity, with teaching-rich staff leading in the innovation and delivery of education.

Research focus. cSCAN is a uniquely interdisciplinary research environment that brings together international researchers across a range of complementary disciplines including Psychology, Neuroscience, Cognitive Science, Computer Science and Engineering who work together to address central questions in social, cognitive, and affective science.

Interdisciplinary links. Our researchers have close links with centres and departments across the university, including:

  • Computing Sciences. Our interdisciplinary Glasgow Social Robotics group was recently awarded a UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Socially Intelligent Artificial Agents with funding for 50 PhD students over the next 8 years (
  • Institute of Health and Well-Being.  Many of our members work closely with top researchers in this world-leading interdisciplinary research centre focused on improving population health and reducing inequalities.  

Facilities and in-house expertise. A wide variety of state-of-the-art methods and technologies are available:

  • Full, on-site brain-imaging suite comprising 7T fMRI, 3T fMRI, MEG, EEG and TMS via the Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging (CCNi) with expertise in combining technologies (e.g., fMRI+EEG, MEG+Eye tracking, EEG+TMS). Affiliate facilities include ECoG at The Glasgow Epilepsy Centre
  • A range of technologies used for studying human behavior as well as for the design of applications, including virtual reality environments and the cSCAN’s own state of the art tools for creating virtual and robotic social agents, specifically for generating dialog, posture, gestures, facial actions and facial morphology.
  • Multiple technologies for capturing behaviour, including eye trackers, 3D facial morphology, motion capture systems and voice capture.

Researchers also have the following dedicated research support facilities:

  • Online, secure Subject Pool (1000+ members, 16-80+ years, 100+ nationalities)
  • In-house computing support team providing 6+ Petabytes of storage, High Performance Computing (HPC, 5k cores, 5Tb RAM, 20+ GPU cards), high-security data management systems, advice, sourcing and installation of high-performance computing equipment and software development of on-line research facilities
