UNIVERSITY of GLASGOW
DEPARTMENT OF PSYCHOLOGY
Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging (CCNi)
3 year fixed term appointment, £23,692 - £26,666 or £29,139 - £32,796
per annum (depending on experience)
Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant to
work with Professor Philippe Schyns, Dr. Nial Friel (Dept of
Statistics) and Dr Marie Smith in the newly established Centre for
Cognitive Neuroimaging (CCNi) on a project entitled “Adaptive
Sampling Algorithms for Cognitive Neuroscience Applications Using
Bubbles”. The CCNi is a research institution with state-of-the-art
EEG and TMS systems and a large computing grid. Within the next few
months a new fMRI and MEG system will be installed.
The overall aim of the project is to develop new methods to interpret
behavioural and brain signals (EEG, MEG and fMRI) with online
sampling of image information. Using adaptive sampling algorithms,
we will seek to circumscribe the stimulus information that optimises
a particular brain response. Developments of adaptive sampling will
include Hidden Markov modelling placed within a statistical decision
You will also have the opportunity to contribute to the development
of a user-friendly, MatLab based toolbox to make these algorithms
publicly available to our growing user base.
You will be qualified, with a PhD, or equivalent, in Statistics or
Mathematics or a closely related discipline. Advanced skills in
statistical pattern recognition and/or machine learning and/or
Bayesian methods are essential. Strong programming skills (Matlab, C
or related) are also highly desirable. Finally, you should have a
strong interest in developing your own scientific program and
pursuing a research career.
