PhD opportunity, Neural Systems Group, School of Biology


A PhD position is available in the Psychology Department at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, in the laboratory of Prof. Alexander Thiele. Work in the lab focuses on the mechanisms, networks, and the neurotransmitters involved in visual attention. The work involves psychophysics, multiple channel electrophysiological recordings with simultaneous application of various neurotransmitters/neuromodulators, and fMRI studies. The exact project will depend on the interests and experience of the successful applicant. Candidates should have a strong interest in visual psychophysics, electrophysiology, neuropharmacology and fMRI. Computer and programming skills (especially Matlab and C) are desirable, but can be acquired during the PhD. The post is available with immediate effect and will be supported for 3 years. The position will remain open until a suitable candidate is found.
