Research Associate in Computational Sensorimotor Control

We are currently seeking a highly motivated Research Associates
(postdoctoral fellows) to join our group working on theoretical and
experimental approaches to human sensorimotor control. The project is funded
by an EU grant 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 November 1st, 2006
or as soon as possible thereafter.  Salary is in the range £24,161-£31,525
p.a.  Further details of the posts 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) 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),
