Applications are invited for a three-year Postdoctoral Research Officer 
(Starting Salary: £21,478 - £23,883) position in social cognitive 
neuroscience. This position is to work on a research grant awarded to 
Professor David Linden jointly with Professor Thomas Mussweiler of the 
University of Cologne, Germany. This grant is funded by the ESRC through 
their bilateral programme with the German Research Council (DFG). The 
aim of the project is to investigate the neural substrates of social 
comparison, one of the most pervasive cognitive processes humans engage 
in. The work will involve the adaptation of paradigms from social 
psychology research for functional imaging and the acquisition and 
analysis of behavioural and imaging data. The successful candidate will 
work closely with the research officer in the Cologne team, who is being 
recruited in parallel.

Professor Mussweiler's group in Cologne is internationally leading in 
the fields of social judgment, stereotyping and decision making:

This is a full-time position, starting on April 1st 2008. The ideal 
candidate would have a PhD in cognitive neuroscience or a related field, 
experience with stimulus programming and functional magnetic resonance 
imaging and an interest in the application of these skills to current 
topics in social psychology.

The School of Psychology at Bangor is one of the UK's leading Psychology 
departments (Wolfson Centre For Clinical And Cognitive Neuroscience). It 
enjoys the highest possible research rating (RAE 5*A), and offers an 
exciting research environment within a dynamic and growing imaging
