interdisciplinary post-doctoral Research Fellowship in cognitive  
ageing and visual cognition.  The post is fixed-term, and may be  
offered for up to 3 years.  The anticipated start date is September 1,  

The successful applicant will join a team of researchers, led by Dr.  
James Brockmole, dedicated to executing a systematic program of

changes with age.  The successful applicant will be responsible for  
designing, running, and analysing experiments and will have the  
opportunity to contribute to all other aspects of the research,  
including conceptualization of studies and dissemination of research  
through journals and conference presentations.  The Fellow will also  
have the potential to collaborate actively with other members of the  
visual cognition and cognitive ageing communities in one of the  
leading centres for cognitive science, neuroscience, cognition, and  
computation worldwide.  Project partners at the University of  
Edinburgh include the Lothian Birth Cohort Studies, the Disconnected  
Mind Project, and the MRC Centre in Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive  

Official announcements, further particulars, and relevant closing  
dates concerning the post will be announced in the coming weeks.  In  
the mean time, potential applicants are encouraged to express their  
interest and to direct informal enquiries to Dr. James Brockmole:

experience, but will be no higher than £30,013 (currently point 3 on  
the UE7 scale).

The University of Edinburgh is committed to equality and diversity.
