Research Fellow - fNIRS measures of Attention and working memory
University College London - UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience
£35,965 to £43,470 per annum
March 13, 2020
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position (i.e. a postdoc) in UCL Attention and Cognitive Control laboratory at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, supervised by Prof Nilli Lavie. The project is co-funded by Toyota Motor Europe and Mind Vision Labs (a UCL spinout). The research focus would be on using Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) to investigate impact of working memory load and perceptual load on the processing of 'natural scenes' and real-world displays (e.g. car interfaces).
The position is funded for one year, in the first instance, though the funding is expected to be available for a second year as well, and is available to start as soon as the post is filled. Due to the funding terms applicants need to either have UK or EU nationality, or have a valid UK work permit visa.
Applicants should hold or expect shortly to hold a PhD with a record of success in research (as evidenced in publications) in cognitive neuroscience, preferably including fMRI fNIRS or other neuroimaging methods. Applicants are expected to have excellent programming and analyses skills, as well as strong written and verbal communication skills.
