    Postdoctoral Research Fellow to study Visual Neglect

    Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to take part in
    a research programme studying visual neglect following stroke and its
    treatment. The Fellow will be based at Charing Cross Hospital, London and,
    in addition, there will be opportunities to conduct research at the
    Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, Queen Square.

    The aim of the research programme is to investigate the components
    underlying the neglect syndrome (using behavioural experimental
    techniques), relate impairments to sites of brain damage and attempt to
    treat neglect using several new methods. Ideally, the applicant will have a
    background in either experimental psychology or visual or cognitive
    neuroscience, and will have completed a doctoral thesis. Previous
    experience of patient research is not essential.

    The successful applicant will work with Dr. Masud Husain. The post is
    funded by a five year grant from The Wellcome Trust. The appointment is for
    three years. For informal enquiries contact Dr. M. Husain

    Post-doctoral research fellow to study visual search

    The Department of Sensorimotor control at Imperial College School of
    Medicine has a vacancy for a research fellow to join a Wellcome Trust
    funded research team. The successful applicant will work with Prof C
    Kennard, Drís T. Hodgson and S.Mannan on a research program investigating
    the functional neuroanatomy of visual search. The group is very well
    resourced, having access to large patient populations and a variety of
    experimental techniques including Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS),
    functional magnetic resonance imaging, Event related potential and various
    oculographic and kinematic recording devices.

    The successful applicant will carry out studies using TMS to investigate
    the brain regions involved in processes of attention and working memory
    during the control of eye and hand movements. The position is available for
    three years from October 2000. Applicants must have a PhD in Experimental
    Psychology or other related discipline. Previous experience of the
    kinematic analysis of hand and eye movement data and / or TMS would also be
    an advantage. For further information please contact Dr T Hodgson
    ( or Prof C. Kennard (
