This is a great opportunity for a researcher at the start of their career; five years of effectively independent research, followed by an indefinite lectureship (subject to normal probation criteria). We have good auditory facilities here; 3 new IAC double-walled booths, and two new EEG systems (IHS EP system, and EGI 128-channel system), and two hearing researchers on Faculty (myself and Martine Turgeon). Lancaster is a great place to live, surrounded by beautiful countryside (Yorkshire Dales, Lake District, Forest of Bowland), with easy access to Manchester.

RCUK RESEARCH FELLOW (LEADING TO LECTURER/ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR) IN SENSORY AND PERCEPTUAL DEVELOPMENT
We are seeking an individual to conduct research into the development of sensory and perceptual skills in humans, as part of an interdisciplinary team comprising members of the Centre for Research in Human Development and the Sensory Neuroscience Unit. The fellowship is available for 5 years from January 2007 (the post-holder must take up the post by 1st April 2007) and, on completion, will convert to an indefinite academic position (subject to normal criteria for completion of probation) . The post offers an excellent opportunity for an individual to establish an academic career that allows them to focus almost exclusively on research for the first five years.

Individuals currently employed via a personal research fellowship or research grant are eligible.
