The Manchester China Institute (MCI) seeks to appoint a Research Associate/Postdoctoral Fellow in the applied social/political psychology of China and globalisation commencing September 2019.

You will have a PhD by the time of appointment in psychology or politics, advanced knowledge of survey and experimental research design, statistical methods, as well as a demonstrable ability to publish in top academic journals.

Knowledge of China or the Chinese language is not essential.

Current projects in our research lab explore the causes and consequences of mis/trust and prejudice in UK-China relations, and the impact of intergroup contacts between Anglo and Chinese students on and near campus. MCI Director Peter Gries will supervise an agreed upon project in social/political psychology. You will be based in MCI’s Lee Kai Hung Postdoctoral College.

MCI, which seeks to improve mutual understanding in UK-China relations, received a £5M donation in 2018. It supports a vibrant China studies research community at the University of Manchester, a global top-30 research institution that boasts the largest Chinese student population of any university in Europe. Manchester is also home to the second largest Chinese community in Europe, and plays a major role in UK-China relations.

As an equal opportunities employer we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status. All appointments are made on merit.
