Career Development Fellow (Postdoctoral position)
The MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit (CBSU) is an internationally renowned research institute with state-of-the-art cognitive neuroscience facilities, including a research dedicated 3T Siemens Trio MRI scanner and 306-channel Elekta Neuromag MEG system.
Applications are invited for a post-doctoral position to work within a research programme led by Dr Matthew Davis investigating neural systems for perceiving, understanding and learning spoken language. The research will use advanced functional imaging methods (fMRI, MEG/EEG) to explore speech processing in healthy, adult participants. Additional opportunities may arise to work with children or adults with language impairment.
You should have, or be in the final stages of obtaining, a PhD in cognitive neuroscience or related field, including experience of one or more neuroimaging methods. A strong computational or statistical background is desirable and experience of speech signal processing or psycholinguistics.
This is a three year training and development postdoctoral position. The starting salary will be in the range of £26,022 - £29,324 per annum, depending upon qualifications and experience. We offer a flexible pay and reward policy, 30 days annual leave entitlement, and an optional MRC final salary Pension Scheme. On site car and bicycle parking is available.
