The Department of Psychology has modern and high level research facilities such as an eye-tracker (Eyelink 1000/2000), EEG (BioSemi) and an fNIRS system. A new Science Lab Building including a purpose build suite of Psychology labs will be constructed during the next year.

The appointed candidate will have an excellent research record at an international level and be able to lead the further development of a strong research culture within the Department and the Faculty, which will include guiding and promoting the research of others.
