Using your background in behavioural science and experimental methods, you will work with researchers on research design, measurement, and implementation. You will manage the daily running of research studies in the lab, including recruiting participants, managing and developing the lab’s hardware and software (including set-up of equipment for studies and developing new technical capabilities for innovative research applications). You will also collaborate with colleagues on developing the internal and external profile of the lab to build a network of researchers that will facilitate new projects and studies, including potential collaborations with commercial partners.
