*Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Cognitive Neuroscience*
Department of Psychology
University of London

Salary is in the range £24,466 to £26,537 inclusive of London Allowance.

A 23 month, 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 the 
behavioural or cognitive neurosciences by July 2008 (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 (particularly those concerned with investigating connectivity) 
is desirable. Candidates should be willing to learn new research methods 
and to have a strong interest in pursuing a research career.

This post is available between May-July 2008. Further information can be 
found at www.pc.rhul.ac.uk/staff/n.ramnani. Informal inquiries should be 
addressed to Dr. Ramnani (tel. +44 (0) 1784 443519; email
