Would you enjoy working directly with local schools and early years pupils to improve their educational outcomes and life chances? Could you help facilitate an exciting new partnership which will help bridge the gap between psychology research and teaching practice?
We are seeking to appoint an Educational research and knowledge exchange officer for a collaborative project between UEL BabyDev Lab (https://www.uel.ac.uk/our-research/research-school-psychology/developmental-psychology-research-group/uel-babydevlab) and Newham Learning, a group of 40 state funded schools in the borough of Newham.
Working at various primary schools and on the Stratford Campus, you will collect and analyse data for a new project that uses child-wearable cameras, microphones and autonomic monitors to look at the impact of outdoor learning on children’s physiological stress, attention and learning. Working directly with young children you will help record, analyse and assess their physiology, behaviour and learning.
You will also be involved in liaising between psychology researchers at the Baby Development Lab and schools in Newham – planning, recruiting and grant writing for future collaborative research projects and helping to organise research-dissemination and training events for teachers.
We are looking for someone organised, motivated and reliable who has experience in communicating with young children and strong research skills, including data analysis and confidence in using technical equipment. If you have an interest in educational psychology and child development then this could be the ideal role for you.
