2 years fixed-term appointment, £31, 513 - £35, 469 per annum

REF: 57-4

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate working  
with Dr. Sereno, Dr. Rousselet and Dr. Pernet in the newly established  
Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging (CCNi) within the Department of  
Psychology.  CCNi is a research institute that houses up-to-date fMRI,  
MEG, EEG, and TMS systems and a large computing grid.

You will contribute to a two-year project entitled, “Fluent reading  
and the brain: Co-registration and statistical decomposition of eye  
fixations and anatomically-based electrophysiology.”  Specifically,  
the job requires aid in developing the technical aspects of the  
paradigm, contributing to the design of the experiments, preparing and  
norming the experimental materials, recruiting and running the  
participants, assisting in analysing the results, and participating in  
the writing up of the results for publication.

The successful candidate should hold a Ph.D. (or equivalent) in  
Cognitive Neuroscience (in the areas of language, vision, or both) or  
a closely related discipline, as well as advanced knowledge in signal  
processing and statistical procedures.  Strong experimental and MatLab  
programming skills are essential.  Eyetracking or EEG expertise (or  
both) is also required.  If necessary, appropriate training will be  
provided.  Candidates should have excellent knowledge of English and  
strong interests in pursuing a research career and in developing their  
own scientific program.

The post is available from 1 January 2010 for a period of two years  
with a potential extension pending funding approval.

Informal enquiries can be made to Dr. Sereno (s.sereno at psy.gla.ac.uk),  
Dr. Rousselet (g.rousselet at psy.gla.ac.uk), or Dr. Pernet (cyril.pernet at ed.ac.uk 
).  For further details on the Department of Psychology and CCNi,

“When a scientist states that something is possible, he is almost
certainly right. When he states that something is impossible,
he is very probably wrong.
	The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to
venture a little way past them into the impossible.
	Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”

	Arthur C. Clarke's three laws of technology
