We are looking for a Science Officer to help support current and prospective users in creating a range of studies in behavioural sciences using the PsychoPy/JS/Pavlovia ecosystem. You will provide support via consultancy jobs with clients, providing training in workshops, and supporting users on the forum. The role also provides a critical interface between users and developers of the software.

The ideal candidate should have a PhD in a behavioural science (e.g. psychology, economics, neuroscience), substantial experience in PsychoPy and related tools, and a passion for technology and software. Experience in teaching others would be beneficial, but a desire to push the envelope and a passion for the tools are more important.

We are particularly keen to find candidates that complement our existing staff by extending the range of academic fields and/or geographical areas that we can support.
