Following a £6.6m grant from Research England, Loughborough University is seeking to appoint a highly-motivated full-time Research Associate following the establishment of the Centre for Mathematical Cognition (CMC). The CMC, founded in 2019, includes new research facilities and academic, research, administrative and technical posts. This represents a substantial expansion of Loughborough’s internationally recognised mathematical cognition and mathematics education research.
The post holder will work with academics in the Centre to co-design, implement and disseminate research projects that seek to broaden our understanding of mathematical cognition. We envisage that the post holder will lead on the recruitment of participants, data collection, data analysis, data management, report writing, presentations, and the design of future projects, adhering to open science principles.
Applicants should have a PhD (or be near completion) in psychology, education or a related discipline, and a desire to work with academics conducting research on mathematical cognition.
Application submission deadline: 31 January 2021
