*2 PhD and 2 PostDoc positions in Computational Cognitive Neuroimaging
- Multisensory integration and learning;
University of Birmingham, UK*
In our natural dynamic environment the senses are constantly bombarded
with many different signals. How does the human brain integrate
information from multiple senses to form a coherent percept and interact
effectively with our environment?
To study the neural mechanisms underlying multisensory integration and
learning in humans, we combine psychophysics and functional imaging
(fMRI, EEG/MEG & combined TMS-fMRI). Effective connectivity analyses
(e.g. Dynamic Causal Modelling) are used to investigate how information
is integrated from the senses through distinct interactions amongst
brain regions. To provide a more informed perspective on the
computational mechanisms, we combine functional imaging with models of
Bayesian inference and learning.
The Computational Cognitive Neuroimaging Group (Prof Uta Noppeney) is
seeking 2 enthusiastic PhD and 2 PostDoc candidates with a strong
quantitative background. Applicants should have a background in
neuroscience, psychology, computer science, physics or related areas.
Prior experience in functional imaging, MatLab, data analysis and/or
machine learning would be an advantage.
The Computational Cognitive Neuroimaging lab is based at the
Computational Neuroscience and Cognitive Robotics Centre and the
Department of Psychology of the University of Birmingham, UK. The centre
provides an excellent multidisciplinary, interactive and collaborative
research environment combining expertise in cognitive neuroimaging,
psychophysics and computational neuroscience. The psychology department
was rated 3rd in the UK research assessment exercise.
Applications will be considered until the positions are filled. Starting
dates are flexible. For further information, please contact
