As members of the Infancy and Early Development Research group at Lancaster University we would like to bring to your attention that we are advertising for two lectureship posts (the equivalent of Assistant Professor) in the Psychology Department, Lancaster University. One post is open area (including developmental) and the other is focused on developmental psychology. We are particularly keen to attract applicants with research interests in infancy and early development, to supplement our team of international researchers and strengthen the group further.
Our department has unrivalled facilities for infancy research with the entire ground floor of a dedicated research building housing our laboratory suite for research on early development. We have several remote and head-mounted eye trackers, several EEG systems (EGI), fNIRS, motion tracking, facial EMG, and an observation suite. The lab is supported by a dedicated lab manager and we have a large database of participants as well as several dedicated parking spaces for parents. Over the past four years the group has been organizing one of the largest European conferences on infancy research, the Lancaster International Conference on Infant and Early Child Development (LCICD).
