*Postdoctoral Position available in consciousness science*: A two-year 
full-time post-doctoral position is available within the Sackler Centre 
for Consciousness Science (SCCS) at the University of Sussex, starting 
in Spring/Summer 2011. This research initiative is funded by the 
large-scale EU project 'collective experience of empathic data systems' 
(CEEDS, see www.ceeds-project.eu <http://www.ceeds-project.eu/>). You 
will work with Dr. Anil Seth (SCCS co-director) and others in the group, 
on developing and testing a theoretical model of the neurocognitive 
mechanisms underpinning conscious presence.  Presence is a key dimension 
structuring conscious experience, but one that requires explanation. For 
example, in virtual reality, researchers try to engender conscious 
presence in simulated environment. Conversely, certain psychiatric 
disorders (e.g., depersonalization, derealisation) seem to selectively 
affect conscious presence.  For more information and for how to apply 
see www.jobs.ac.uk/job/ACC296/ and follow the links on 
www.anilseth.com.  More information about the SCCS is at 
www.sussex.ac.uk/sackler/.  The closing date for applications if Feb 28, 
2011
