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
