Applications are invited for two 2.5-year post-doctoral research fellows (potentially renewable for a further 6 months) to conduct research on high level colour representation in the brain and the brain basis of colour experience. The successful candidate will be part of the ERC-funded COLOURCODE team based in Jenny Bosten’s<https://profiles.sussex.ac.uk/p348308-jenny-bosten> Sussex Vision Lab<https://jennybosten.wixsite.com/visionlab> at the University of Sussex<https://www.sussex.ac.uk/>. The work uses fMRI and/or EEG as well as psychophysical methods. One part of the project involves analysis of the 7T fMRI Natural Scenes dataset<http://naturalscenesdataset.org/> (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41593-021-00962-x) as part of an existing collaboration with Kendrick Kay<http://cvnlab.net/home.shtml>. Another part involves gathering and analysing new EEG data in conjunction with psychophysics, measuring steady-state visually evoked potentials. A third part involves using psychophysics and EEG to understand individual differences in colour experience. A background in colour science would be an asset but is not required: applications are encouraged from candidates interested in the research questions who have a background in psychophysics, machine vision, or neuroimaging.
There is a vibrant research community in colour perception and visual neuroscience at the University of Sussex, including Anna Franklin<https://profiles.sussex.ac.uk/p256540-anna-franklin>, Anil Seth<https://profiles.sussex.ac.uk/p22981-anil-seth>, Jamie Ward<https://profiles.sussex.ac.uk/p92444-jamie-ward>, Tom Baden<https://profiles.sussex.ac.uk/p379418-thomas-baden> and Daniel Osorio<https://profiles.sussex.ac.uk/p531-daniel-colaco-osorio>. The University is committed to equality and valuing diversity, and applications are particularly welcomed from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in Science, Technology, Engineering, Medicine and Mathematics (STEMM) at Sussex.
Closing date: 10th October 2022
