Tue Feb 28 12:39:17 CET 2006



We are currently seeking two highly motivated Research Associates
(postdoctoral fellows) to join our group working on theoretical and
experimental approaches to human sensorimotor control. The project is led by
Professor Daniel Wolpert and involves investigating the processes involved
in motor learning, sensorimotor integration and control. 


The successful applicants will be expected to conduct independent research
involving both computational and experimental studies in humans. Candidates
should have a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Psychology, or Physical and Engineering
Sciences relevant to sensorimotor control, with an academic record of
scientific excellence, independent research, and a strong interest in an
interdisciplinary approach to motor control. A strong mathematical,
statistical, and/or computational background and experience with computers
and programming (Matlab, C++, etc.) is expected. Applicants with a strong
computational background relevant to neuroscience who wish to learn
experimental approaches will also be considered. 


The appointment will be for two years initially starting July 1st, 2006 or
as soon as possible thereafter.  Salary is in the range £20,044 to £30,002
p.a.  Further details of the posts and an application form (PD18) are
available on www.wolpertlab.com. Informal enquiries should be addressed by
email to Professor Wolpert (wolpert at eng.cam.ac.uk ). 


Applicants are asked to submit (a) a cover letter describing their research
experiences, interests, and goals, (b) a curriculum vitae, (c) a completed
form PD18 (section I and III only) with the names and contact information of
three individuals who can serve as references. These should be sent to Mrs.
J. Milne (preferably by email jrm16 at eng.cam.ac.uk ), Department of
Engineering, Trumpington Street, Cambridge, CB2 1PZ, UK to arrive prior to
April 14th, 2006.


The University is committed to equality of opportunity
