Post-doctoral Position on fMRI studies of visual learning.

Applications are invited for a Post-doctoral Position at the School of Psychology, University of Birmingham, UK. The work focuses on fMRI studies of visual learning in the human brain. Our research uses behavioural and imaging methods (MRI, EEG, MEG) in combination with advanced mathematical approaches to examine the computations that mediate the recognition of complex objects and natural scenes in the human brain. Further, we study the development of these processes throughout the lifespan, and the neural plasticity mechanisms that shape these functions through visual experience. For further information, please check: http://psg275.bham.ac.uk/cnil/

The School of Psychology at the University of Birmingham is a top class 5* department that has a strong group in Cognitive Neuroscience and a state-of-the-art Imaging Center (3T scanner), access to a large group of screened neuropsychological patients, EEG/ERP systems, TMS delivery systems, robot systems for haptic  research, and several systems for eye movement tracking and kinematic analysis.

Candidates should have background and hold a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Cognitive Psychology, Computer Science, Engineering or a related field. Programming skills (e.g. Matlab, C, OpenGL) and experience with behavioural, imaging and signal processing methods are desirable.

Please, send curriculum vitae, a research statement, and names of three referees to:
