Applications are invited for a two year (with a possible 1-2 year extension), full time postdoctoral position with Dr. Kami Koldewyn in the Developmental Social Vision lab<https://sites.google.com/view/devsocialvislab/> in the School of Psychology at Bangor University<https://www.bangor.ac.uk/psychology/> (Wales, UK). The post is part of a European Research Council funded Starting Grant focused on Developmental Social Neuroscience. The project, ‘Becoming Social’, investigates developmental change in social perception, social learning and the social brain in late-childhood/early adolescence.
The successful applicant will be the coordinator of the longitudinal developmental aspects of the Becoming Social project, which focuses on the transitional period between childhood and adolescence. The post will involve developing tasks and methods that will be applied throughout the five-year project in the longitudinal developmental streams. Methods used may include behavioural, eye-tracking and neuroimaging (e.g. fMRI, DWI) measures and the postdoctoral researcher who fills this post will be very involved, both conceptually and technically, in the design and construction of research questions and the tasks to address them.
Duties will include working to develop tasks and materials that will be used with both adults and children/adolescents aged 11-16 both with and without an Autism Spectrum Disorder. The postdoctoral researcher will be a key member of the Becoming Social team and will work closely with other team members.
A PhD or equivalent in a relevant field (e.g., Psychology, Neuroscience, Cognitive Science, Biomedical Imaging/Engineering or Computer Science), as well as outstanding written and spoken communication skills are essential. In addition, experience working with children or adolescents and their families would be helpful for this post.
Closing date for applications: 1st June, 2018.
Exact timing of the start date is flexible for the right candidate.
