ESA-announce Junior Positions at the University of Birmingham, UK
The University of Birmingham is offering attractive entry level positions for very promising early carrier researchers. These so called “Birmingham Fellows” are recruited in all areas. One of the priority areas this year is “Markets and Behaviour in a Global Economy.” Please see http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/staff/excellence/fellows/index.aspx for details.
These are lectureships (permanent positions) but with a much reduced teaching load and a guarantee that fellows would not have to do any administration for 5 years. This frees up a lot more time for research than is normal in UK universities. The expectation is that after the 5 years fellows will be promoted to senior lecturer but can be promoted before then. The competition for these fellowships is very tough and in order to be considered applicants have to have at least one publication in a high-quality (3*) journal.
An attractive feature of joining the University of Birmingham is the access to state-of-the-art resources, with MRI, fMRI, EEG, infant EEG, multiple TMS platforms, and multiple facilities for eye tracking and kinematic analysis (via collaborations with Psychology) as well as the Birmingham Experimental Economics Laboratory (BEEL).
Interested (experimental/behavioural) candidates should contact me asap (b.grosskopf(at)bham.ac.uk). The deadline for applications is August 27, 2012.
Best wishes, Brit
