Applications are invited for a 36-month DTA3/COFUND Marie Skłodowska-Curie PhD Fellowship in my lab to work on a project entitled “Now where was I? The changing role of the prefrontal and motor cortices as a function of healthy ageing.”

The project will combine behavioural and neurophysiological protocols to investigate key areas of the cortical network that underlie complex oculo-manual pursuit in young and elderly neurotypical adults. More details of the project and supervisory team can be found at: https://unialliance.ac.uk/dta/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/LJAB04-LJMU-Bennett-Cortices.pdf

The successful applicant will join Professor Simon Bennett’s lab in the Research Institute for Sport and Exercise Sciences at Liverpool John Moores University. The research group comprise a small team of six staff, two post-docs and five PhD students who study human motor behaviour from the neural level through to perception and cognition. We have several dedicated research laboratories that are equipped with specialist devices for online motion analysis (Vicon; Qualisys; NDI), high resolution eye movement registration (Chronos Vision CETD; EyeLink 1000; Tobii Pro), visual stimulus presentation at high spatial and temporal resolution (ViewPixx EEG; Barco Graphics; CRS ViSaGe), neuromodulation (Magstim Bistim; neuroConn DC-STIMULATOR PLUS) and neuroimaging (Brainsight NIRS; actiCHamp EEG). More details on the Brain and Behaviour Research Group can be found at: https://www.ljmu.ac.uk/research/centres-and-institutes/research-institute-for-sport-and-exercise-sciences/expertise/brain-and-behaviour-research-group.

General details of the DTA3/COFUND Marie Skłodowska-Curie PhD Fellowship Programme and How to Apply can be found at: https://unialliance.ac.uk/dta/cofund/. Applications can ONLY be made through the University Alliance website and as such, I cannot accept applications via email. However, please get in touch if you have any questions about the fellowship: s.j.bennett at ljmu.ac.uk<mailto:s.j.bennett at ljmu.ac.uk>

Closing Date: 12/04/19 (23:59 BST)

Salary: £20, 989 p.a. (minimum)

Please note the eligibility requirements—applicants must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the UK for more than 12 months in the previous 3 years immediately before taking up a DTA3 / COFUND opportunity. Additionally, please note that candidates are applying for an employed position and therefore a Tier 4 is not a valid visa.
