Fri Mar 28 13:06:04 CET 2008
*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
