Wales Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience/School of Psychology  Bangor 
University, Wales

The School of Psychology at Bangor University, Wales, is seeking 
applications for its new Visiting Scholar programme. The programme is 
funded by a Welsh Government  grant to establish the Wales Institute of 
Cognitive Neuroscience (WICN) among Bangor, Cardiff and Swansea Schools 
of Psychology.

Purpose.  The programme is intended to bring leading cognitive 
neuroscientists to Bangor for a short (1-2 month) sabbatical-like 
visit, to promote collaboration and the exchange of  ideas not only 
with Bangor scientists but with collaborators at Cardiff and Swansea.

Provision. The programme will pay travel and accommodation costs for 
the Visiting Scholar, as  well as a modest stipend. It will also 
provide a small overhead fund to pay for research during the visit, 
which can include access to Bangor’s new 3T fMRI scanner.  The Visiting 
Scholar will also have access to support from postdoctoral researchers 
employed by WICN.

Requirements.  Visiting scholars will be expected to contribute to WICN 
in a number of ways, including collaborative interactions with existing 
staff, contributing to the colloquium  series, and running occasional 
workshops for staff and graduate students.

Applications. In the first instance, informal enquiries should be 
addressed to Prof Steven Tipper or  Prof. Kimron Shapiro 
(s.tipper at bangor.ac.uk, k.shapiro at bangor.ac.uk). Interested applicants 
should send a CV and supporting letter to Donna Pierz-Fennell, WICN  
Manager, School of Psychology, Bangor University, Gwynedd, LL57 2AS, 
UK.    About Bangor School of Psychology The School of Psychology at 
Bangor enjoys the highest possible research rating (RAE  5*A) and has 
excellent resources (e.g. 3T fMRI, TMS, EEG/ERP, eye-tracking, haptic 
simulators, motion capture).
