Apologies for re-posting, but in the previous post MailScanner flagged the links to application details for this post as a "fraud".  Please find a new link to the University pages below where you can gain further information regarding this post.

Postdoctoral Research Associate

Salary in the range £25,826 to £28,000 inclusive of London allowance 

Applications are invited for a 30 month postdoctoral position in the Department of Psychology, Royal Holloway University of London. 

This position is funded by an EPSRC research grant awarded to Professor John Wann (RHUL), Dr. David Field (Univ of Reading), and Dr Richard Wilkie (Univ of Leeds). It will involve behavioural experiments on perception of approaching objects (time to collision, time to passage) and then translating these paradigms into the scanner to explore the neural correlates of such judgments. The second part of the project will investigate neural correlates of heading perception and the control of steering. This is a full time appointment starting prior to 31st August 2007.

Applicants should have an interest in human vision and experience of setting up visual displays for behavioural experiments. Ideally candidates should possess some experience either in the acquisition and analysis of functional imaging data (e.g. SPM, BrainVoyager) or experience of programming visual displays.

Information about the department and scanner facility may be found at http://www.rhul.ac.uk/Psychology . Informal enquiries may be directed to John Wann E-Mail: J.P.Wann at rhul.ac.uk or to David Field E-Mail: d.t.field at rdg.ac.uk . 

*Please note that the College is currently undergoing a job evaluation exercise (HERA) and salaries will therefore be subject to review.
