Experimental Psychology has been taught in Oxford for more than 100 years, and we are proud to be one of the leading psychology departments worldwide. Our department is known for its ground breaking basic and translational research, and for the exceptional educational opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students alike.
We welcome applications from talented, well-qualified people interested in undertaking and supporting the highest quality research in psychology and other related fields.
