Postdoctoral Research Assistant
Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging (CCNi)
Department of Psychology
£25,889 - £31,840 per annum

REF: 13078/DPO/A3

A strategic priority of the University is the current creation within
the Department of Psychology of a Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging
(CCNi), a major initiative to install an in-house platform of
complementary, state-of-the-art brain imaging facilities dedicated to
Cognitive Neuroscience research. Equipment will include a 3T fMRI
scanner, a MEG system, a TMS system, and several EEG systems – including
fMRI compatible systems.

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant to work
with Professor Joachim Gross in the Magnetoencephalography (MEG) group
in the newly established CCNi. The overall mission of the group is the
non-invasive investigation of large-scale oscillatory neural
interactions and their role in information processing by using advanced
signal processing techniques.

You will have the opportunity to: contribute to the design of MEG
experiments; collect the data with a state of the art MEG system;
develop, validate and apply cutting edge techniques to analyse brain
signals in the time and frequency domain; solve the inverse problem in
order to identify processing networks.

You will be expected to contribute to the overall mission of the group,
to ongoing MEG projects, and provide expertise and support for the
research at CCNi.

You will be qualified, with a PhD, or equivalent, in Psychology,
Neuroscience, Medicine, Neuroinformatics, Physics or a related
discipline. Advanced programming skills (preferably with MATLAB) are
essential. Experience with MEG/EEG data acquisition and analysis is
highly desirable. You should be familiar with principles of signal
processing (also in the frequency domain), statistical methods and
possibly the MEG inverse problem.
Finally you should have a strong interest in developing your own
scientific programme and pursuing a research career.

This post is available from 1 May 2007 and funding is available for 24
months initially.
