We will appoint two world-leading Professors to further strengthen this profile.

The School hosts the Centre for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, which forms part of the multidisciplinary Cognition Institute. The centre has active research groups in Cognitive Neuroscience, Thinking and Reasoning, Memory, Vision and Action, Language Development, Social Psychology and Health and Well Being.  These groups are housed in recently-built dedicated research facilities, and supported by a team of technicians and scientific officers. You will be expected to strengthen an existing research group or build a research programme that complements existing strengths. Preference for one of the professorial posts will be given to applications in the areas of Social, Developmental or Clinical Psychology.

For the full Professor post you will have outstanding research track record with a publication and research funding profile that demonstrates an internationally excellent standing in your field. You will be research-leaders, demonstrating both personal research excellence, and the potential to drive forward the research agenda of the School of Psychology. http://psychology.plymouth.ac.uk/

The Centre for Brain, Cognition and Behavior (CBCB) has 36 research active academic staff:  http://psychology.plymouth.ac.uk/research/. This vibrant centre is well resourced. 5 dedicated technicians support the Centre's laboratories. The Centre houses 513m2 of lab space across 35 rooms with 95 networked computers for behavioral testing, including eye tracking, visuomotor affordance equipment, and virtual reality. Portable equipment, such as laptops, video-cameras and headphones, are available on demand. The Centre houses a state-of-the-art, multi-modal neuroimaging, computer lab. Cognitive neuroscience laboratories cover the full range of techniques. For EEG/ERP/psychophysiology, there are three fully-equipped, 128-channel, active-electrode systems and two 64-channel passive amplification systems, which can allow EEG recording during TMS. The fully-equipped TMS lab houses single pulse and repetitive stimulation with stereotactic positioning to integrate with fMRI data. The research-dedicated fMRI scanner is housed at the Peninsula Medical School (http://centres.exeter.ac.uk/pmrrc/) and has systems for stimulus delivery, response collection, and eye tracking. CBCB includes several EUCOGII members and links closely with the Centre for Robotics and Neural Systems (CRNS): http://www.tech.plym.ac.uk/SOCCE/CRNS/. CBCB and CRNS are united within the multidisciplinary Cognition Institute that also includes a thriving Neuroarts community.
