Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging (CCNi)


3 year fixed term appointment, £23,692 - £26,666 or £29,139 - £32,796  
per annum (depending on experience)

REF: 13355/DPO/A3

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.
