The Institute of Management Studies (IMS) combines innovative and world-renowned 4* research in one of the most creative universities in the UK with the expertise of leading academics in the fields of economics, marketing, management, innovation and occupational psychology. The IMS is the result of a unique, interdisciplinary collaboration that draws on the teaching of diverse yet complementary subjects, in order to provide students with a distinct qualification and the skills that will allow them to adapt to, and stand out in, an increasingly competitive economy.

We are now seeking a Postdoctoral Research Fellow whose research interests broadly relate to wellbeing, mental health and quality of life, with particular focus on one or more of the following populations: employees in the workplace; marginalised social groups; and larger social units (e.g., dyads, organisations, local authorities etc.)

The primary role of the successful candidate will be to work collaboratively on a programme of research directed by the Head of Department, Dr Jo Lloyd. Candidates will be able to lead on all aspects of the research process, from the design and execution of studies, to the management and analysis of data, to the presentation of findings. Candidates will have experience in applied research, be able to perform advanced quantitative data analysis (e.g., structural equation modelling, latent growth curve modelling, multilevel modelling etc) and be proficient in communicating the findings of this analysis to a range of audiences, but particularly academic journals.

You will have a good first degree and a PhD in Psychology or a closely related discipline (or evidence of having submitted a PhD thesis for examination) on a topic related to Dr Jo Lloyd’s research areas.
