Just thought I would let list subscribers know of the following post.
Please feel free to get in touch with me if you need further information.
*Royal Holloway** University** of **London***
*Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Cognitive Neuroscience
Department of Psychology*
Salary is in the range of £22,779 to £25,092 per annum inclusive of
London Allowance depending on experience.
A three-year, full-time postdoctoral research position is available to
investigate the neural basis of learning in the human brain using
functional MRI. The project will study the dynamic changes in activity
that accompany the acquisition of cognitive and motor skills, and will
focus on information processing in the prefrontal cortex, the cortical
motor system and interconnected areas of the cerebellum (see Ramnani
(2006), Nature Reviews Neuroscience 7(7):511-522). The project is funded
by a BBSRC grant to Dr. Narender Ramnani. Facilities include an on-site,
research-dedicated 3T Siemens Trio MRI scanner hosted by the Psychology
Department at Royal Holloway (Surrey, 35 minutes to central London).
Candidates should hold (or should expect to be awarded) a PhD in
Behavioural or Cognitive Neuroscience by January 2007 (although
candidates from other research backgrounds will also be considered if
their skills are relevant to the project). A record of published
research, some familiarity with functional neuroanatomy and good
programming skills are essential. Familiarity with practical and
statistical neuroimaging methods is desirable. Candidates should be
willing to learn new research methods and to have a strong interest in
pursuing a research career.
Planned (flexible) start date, 15th January. Further information can be
found at www.pc.rhul.ac.uk/staff/n.ramnani
