A full-time 3yr post-doctoral position is available within the new 
multidisciplinary Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science (SCCS) at the 
University of Sussex, starting early 2010. This research initiative is 
funded by a founding donation from the Mortimer and Theresa Sackler 
Foundation. You will work with Dr. Anil Seth (Principal Investigator and 
SCCS co-director), Prof. Hugo Critchley (Chair in Psychiatry and SCCS 
co-director) and other researchers in the group, on developing and 
testing cognitive/computational neuroscience accounts of neural 
mechanisms underlying consciousness, in health and in disease.

The post has a broad remit with opportunities to follow your own 
research interests within the area of cognitive/computational 
neuroscience relevant to consciousness. Emphasis will be given to 
research that integrates functional neuroimaging, behavioural 
experiments, and computational modelling and analysis. The SCCS has 
access to multiple neuroimaging methods including fMRI, EEG, and TMS, as 
well as excellent computational resources.

Candidates must have a PhD or equivalent degree in a quantitative 
science discipline. Prior postdoctoral experience is preferred, as are 
candidates with a strong background in cognitive neuroscience and neural

clinical focus will shortly be available in the same centre.
