The MRC CBU is seeking to fill up to three positions, at career-track,
post-doctoral, and research assistant levels, in the general area of
cognitive and computational neuroscience of language, to complement the CBU
Language Group's existing strengths in psycholinguistics and cognitive
psychology. Apart from excellent facilities for human experimental,
neuropsychological, and computational research, the CBU also has good
access to PET and fMRI (3T) neuro-imaging facilities at the University of
Cambridge Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre. 

The first of these posts is a Career-track position (Ref: CBU/CT99), open
to scientists with established international reputations, who are
interested in leading an innovative language research programme in a
collaborative, interdisciplinary environment. Up to two support posts may
be associated with this position. Starting salary is likely to be in the
range 25,000 to 35,000.

The Post-doctoral (Ref: CBU/PD99) appointment is likely to be at MRC Band
4, for an initial appointment for 3 years, with the possibility of transfer
to a career track position. Starting salaries are negotiable in the range
15,500 to 24,000 per annum.

The Research Assistant (Ref: CBU/RA99) appointment will be to MRC Band 5.
Starting salary will be in the range of 13,000 - 15,000 (subject to
qualifications and experience), rising through a performance related pay
scheme to 24,800. Successful applicants will be likely to have good
degrees in psychology or related disciplines, preferably with some
experience in cognitive neuroscience.

All three positions are supported by a performance related pay scheme and
MRC Pension plan. Some financial assistance with relocation may be
available for the Career- Track and Postdoctoral positions.

Informal enquiries can be addressed to Sian Miller (e-mail

Applications for all three posts should be sent before the closing date of
