We have a full-time post-doctoral position available to study the neurochemistry of human binocular vision at the WIN Centre in Oxford. The project is led by Dr Betina Ip and Professor Holly Bridge. Please feel free to contact with either investigator for informal discussion about the position and project.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, FMRIB, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford
Grade 7: £32,817 - £40,322 per annum A less experienced candidate may be appointed at Grade 6 (£29,176 - £34,804 p.a.) with a commensurate adjustment in essential criteria, responsibilities and duties
We are seeking a postdoctoral research fellow to join a 4-year MRC-funded research programme led by Dr Betina Ip and Professor Holly Bridge, based at the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging (WIN) Centre, part of the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Oxford. The role will investigate the neural mechanisms underlying binocular vision plasticity.
The successful candidate will conduct research to evaluate the potential of the binocular visual system to reorganise in the normal and abnormal visual system using a combination of complementary approaches. Alongside the focus the project has on neurochemical measures measured with magnetic resonance spectroscopy, the postholder will also employ visual perceptual learning, pharmacological manipulation, models of binocular vision abnormality and multimodal MRI (MRS, MRI, DTI, RSN). They will design and perform original research within this programme and bring to this position relevant expertise in behavioural psychophysics and/or non-invasive brain imaging.
It is essential that the postholder hold, or be nearing to completion of, a PhD or DPhil in Neuroscience or other relevant discipline and an interest in the visual system, plasticity and neuroimaging. It is also vital that they have relevant experience in conducting neuroimaging and/or behavioural research to develop and test novel hypotheses.
It would be beneficial if the successful applicant has knowledge and experience of conducting perceptual training and neuroplasticity studies. It would also be of benefit to the role if they have an interest in increasing accessibility to neuroscience through both engagement with the public and broadening access to scientific careers.
Previous applicants of post 152175 need not apply.
The post is full-time for a fixed-term until 31st July 2025 in the first instance.
Only applications received before 12.00 midday on 15th October 2021 will be considered.
Interviews will be held as soon as possible thereafter.
