Cardiff University, School of Psychology

Two Research Associates


We are seeking enthusiastic and able individuals to develop and carry out projects investigating the integration of sensory signals from different subcortical and cortical pathways, and the influence of cognitive control over the integration of "automatic" sensory and motor mechanisms. 


This is an exciting opportunity to join a dynamic and diverse team studying vision and visually guided behaviour in a friendly and supportive environment. Studies will include fMRI imaging (in CUBRIC), novel behavioural paradigms and psychophysics with healthy volunteers and potentially with patients with focal brain lesions. The post offers the opportunity to gain experience in a wide range of methodology (TMS and MEG facilities are also available). You will be expected to fully contribute to designing new paradigms and shaping the future directions of this research.


You should have a PhD in a relevant discipline (e.g. Psychology, Cognitive Neuroscience, Imaging), along with previous experience in either fMRI imaging or experimental psychology (or sensory-motor research). Most important is the ability to learn new techniques and contribute to developing novel experiments. Experience of programming and knowledge of statistical methods would be an advantage. 


These posts are fixed-term for 2 years.


Salary: £20004 - £30002 per annum.


Informal enquiries may be made to Dr Petroc Sumner 020 8383 0584, p.sumner at imperial.ac.uk
