Post-doctoral position to study the role of ageing on multisensory perception available in Trinity College Dublin, Ireland

Applications are invited for the role of post-doctoral researcher at Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience (TCIN) to work in the Multisensory Cognition Lab headed by Professor Fiona Newell. The research is funded by the Health Research Board, in collaboration with Dr. Annalisa Setti, University College Cork and Prof. Ladan Shams, University of California Los Angeles and is aimed at providing a better understanding of the role of ageing on multisensory perception.  The post-doctoral researcher will be based in TCIN and affiliated with the TILDA study at the School of Medicine, Trinity College Dublin. TILDA is a large-scale, nationally representative, longitudinal study of ageing in Ireland led by Professor Roseanne Kenny. The rich data set acquired through the TILDA study provides a unique and exciting opportunity to explore individual differences in multisensory processes relating to cognition and health in older adults (for more details see https://tilda.tcd.ie<https://tilda.tcd.ie/>).

The position is initially for 2 years with a possibility for continuation. The salary is based on the Post-Doctoral Researcher at a point in line with Irish Government Pay Policy (Level 2 salary scale €36,850 - €42,600 per annum). The position is available immediately, and the successful candidate is expected to take up the position as soon as possible, but no later than the start of January 2019.

All candidates must have a Ph.D. in Psychology, Neuroscience or a cognate discipline. Strong analytic skills and proficiency in analysing large data sets is a requirement for this project. Candidates will have a demonstrable interest in human perceptual function, ideally from a multisensory perspective. They must be reliable, highly motivated and productive and enjoy working collaboratively. The Multisensory Cognition Lab comprises undergraduate, postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers, providing a rich environment for exchanging ideas and learning new skills. All members are expected to make a strong intellectual contribution to the overall research programme of the group. Candidates will also be encouraged to take advantage of the highly interdisciplinary environment at the Institute of Neuroscience.
