Research Fellow in Brain Imaging of Cognitive Ageing

A Research Fellow position is available at the Cognitive NeuroImaging Lab,
School of Psychology, University of Birmingham.  The work focuses on
behavioural and imaging studies of cognitive ageing. 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, the
development of these processes throughout the lifespan, and the neural
plasticity mechanisms that shape these functions through visual experience.
For more information please contact Zoe Kourtzi (z.kourtzi at bham.ac.uk,

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 Centre (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.
