CAREER DEVELOPMENT FELLOWSHIP (REF: CS01):
NEURAL MECHANISMS OF AUDITORY PERCEPTION AND ATTENTION
MRC Institute of Hearing Research (Nottingham, UK)
Recent developments in sensory neuroscience have provided direct
evidence of how the central nervous system participates in conscious
perception. Cutting edge technology allows scientists to record
behavioural decisions and the activity of many neurons simultaneously in
a freely moving, alert animal. This effectively integrates neuroscience,
psychophysics and cognition within a single experimental approach. A
three year postdoctoral fellowship is now available at the MRC Institute
of Hearing Research (IHR), utilising this technology to examine directly
neural responses to sound and their relationship to auditory perception
while actively listening to sounds. It will be used to study the neural
mechanisms of auditory detection, discrimination, and attention.
IHR conducts world-leading fundamental and clinical research into
hearing and hearing disorders. Research programmes include
neurophysiology, psychoacoustics, functional neuroimaging, event related
potentials, and applied and clinical applications. IHR is an ideal place
to acquire new skills and develop your career.
Applicants should possess, or be about to obtain, a PhD in one of the
following disciplines: any aspect of auditory science; neuroscience;
visual science. Strong candidates from other disciplines will also be
considered. Experience in either neurophysiology or psychophysics is
highly desirable, but training will be available. The appointment is
fixed-term for 3 years and will be to a starting salary in the range
£24,501 to £26,032 (pay award pending).
