    We are looking for a highly motivated research project manager to join Dr Angela de Bruin's research group in the Department of Psychology at the University of York. The project manager would be working on a project funded by the UKRI Frontier Research Guarantee Funding (for selected ERC starting grants), entitled “Lost For Words: Cognitive Ageing And Language Control In Bilingual Older Adults With And Without Cognitive Impairment”. The goal of the project is to understand how bilingual language use and language control (as used, for example, while switching languages) change with ageing. The project combines interviews and focus groups with experimental paradigms looking at cognitive and neural mechanisms involved in bilingual production and comprehension. The position is for 24 months, starting in August 2024.

    We are specifically looking for a project manager who can communicate fluently in Pahari-Pothwari and/or another Pakistani/Kashmiri heritage language.


    Based at the University of York, you would build connections with multilingual communities, schedule appointments with potential participants, and facilitate participant testing. You will also help with preparation of study materials and transcription and translation of research data.

    Skills, Experience & Qualification needed
  • Ability to fluently communicate in English, Pahari-Pothwari, and/or another Pakistani/Kashmiri heritage language
  • Knowledge and experience of working with multilingual communities, preferably including older adults
  • Experience of managing large-scale projects
  • Level 3 qualification.
  • Ability to take responsibility for delivering work initiatives, interpreting and reporting information, communicating in verbal and written formats, and using digital technology
  • Ability to work collaboratively with others, deliver quality service, develop self and others, and actively champion respect, inclusivity, equality and diversity
  • Interview date: To be confirmed

    For informal enquiries: please contact Dr Angela de Bruin on [email protected]

    The University strives to be diverse and inclusive – a place where we can ALL be ourselves.

    We particularly encourage applications from people who identify as Black, Asian or from a Minority Ethnic background, who are underrepresented at the University.

    We offer family friendly, flexible working arrangements, with forums and inclusive facilities to support our staff. #EqualityatYork
