Graduate Research Assistant in Developmental Psychology and Preschool Education – University of Oxford

Graduate Research Assistant in Developmental Psychology and Preschool Education
Department of Experimental Psychology, Oxford
Grade 6: £27,629 – £32,958 p.a.
 
We are seeking a graduate researcher to join a new project investigating cognitive and educational foundations of preschool mathematics skills. The position will involve employing standardised assessments and experimental measures with young children, their parents and preschool providers in Oxfordshire.
 
The post is funded by the Nuffield Foundation until 31 January 2019, and it involves an exciting collaboration between the Department of Experimental Psychology, the Department of Education and expert advisors in Early Years Education.
 
The postholder will be responsible for the day-to-day administration of the research project and contribute to wider project planning, and knowledge exchange activities involving local teachers and childcare providers. As this post involves travel to local preschools to collect data this would be facilitated by having access to own reliable transport.
 
You will hold a good undergraduate degree and have a keen interest in developmental psychology and early education. As well as experience of data analysis and the use of basic statistical packages, you will have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, and the ability to manage your own research and administrative activities.
 
The closing date for applications is 12.00 midday on 16 May 2017 and interviews will be held on Tuesday 23 May.
 
You will be required to upload a covering letter explaining how you meet the job requirements, as well as a CV and details of two referees as part of your online application.
