Salary for this position is up to £29,317 inclusive of London Allowance.
A 16 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 on information exchange between a network of connected areas that include the cerebellum, prefrontal cortex, the cortical motor system (see Ramnani (2006), Nature Reviews Neuroscience 7(7):511-522). The project is funded by a BBSRC grant to Dr. Narender Ramnani ( www.pc.rhul.ac.uk/staff/n.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 a PhD in a related subject (candidates from any science research backgrounds will also be considered if their skills are relevant to the project). A record of published research, a basic working knowledge of fMRI data analysis methods, familiarity with functional neuroanatomy and good programming skills are essential. Candidates should be willing to learn new research methods and to have a strong interest in pursuing a research career. Previous post-doctoral experience is desirable.
This post is available from March 2009 and will remain open until an offer of appointment has been made. Informal inquiries about project and availability of the post should be addressed to Dr. Ramnani (tel. +44 (0) 1784 443519; email n.ramnani at rhul.ac.uk).
