Applications are invited for a Senior Research Associate to join a project that involves applying the latest language analytics to measure and understand group processes over time. Working closely with a software developer and project collaborators Drs Stacey Conchie and David Ellis, the successful candidate will conduct experimental and/or field trials that explore how changes in group dynamics (e.g., trust) alter the nature of interpersonal mimicry among the group.
The successful candidate will join a team of academic, post-doctoral, and PhD researchers who are part of the behavioural analytics programme of CREST. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to learn about, and contribute to, all aspects of research, including the development of innovative methods of analysis, the writing of journal publications, and the presentation of research at international conferences. This is an excellent opportunity to join and contribute to a collaborative and successful research group that has an expanding portfolio of projects addressing applications of behavioural analytics in law enforcement and security.
The successful candidate will have, or be about to complete, a PhD in psychology or a related discipline. They will be developing a research profile and have the potential to publish in top-quality, peer-reviewed international journals. Experience of undertaking studies of group behaviour and/or familiarity with methods that examine large volumes of data captured over time, will be an advantage.
This is a fixed term appointment for 24 months.
The closing date for applications is Friday 20 September 2018.
