I am posting this announcement on behalf of Kate Jeffery (UCL):

Call for Expressions of Interest: 

     UCL Cognitive, Perceptual and Brain Sciences

The UCL Cognitive, Perceptual and Brain Sciences (CPB) Research
Department, within the Division of Psychology and Language Sciences, is
planning the future appointment of at least two and likely more academic
posts (at Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Reader or Professor level) to
complement existing strengths. For one post the emphasis is on
multimodal communication, with ideal candidates having research
interests that include sign language/deafness research. For a second
post, the emphasis is on Decision and Cognitive Sciences. However, we
would also encourage other candidates with an excellent record of
internationally renowned research in other areas represented within the
department (including computational and animal neuroscience) to express
their interest in the posts.

UCL CPB offers a top research and teaching environment with research
covering behavioural neuroscience, perceptual and cognitive sciences and
cognitive neuroscience. Members of the department are directly involved
in the activities of a number of research centres, including the
Deafness, Cognition and Language (DCAL) centre, the Institute of
Behavioural Neuroscience (IBN), the Birkbeck/UCL Centre for Neuroimaging
(BUCNI) and the Centre for Mathematics and Physics in the Life Sciences
and Experimental Biology (CoMPLEX). They further contribute to the
Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience (ICN) and the Wellcome Department of
Imaging Neuroscience.  Research facilities available to members of staff
comprise state-of-the-art equipment for most types of behavioural
research including a multimodal communication laboratory, animal housing
facility, MRI scanner and TMS facilities. At this stage, we invite
informal expression of interest (including a CV and statement of
research interests) which should be directed to Kate Jeffery by email at
k.jeffery at ucl.ac.uk before October 20 2010.
