********* POSTDOC POSITION AVAILABLE ***********

Dear all,

We are looking for a full-time Postdoctoral Research Fellow to work within the School of Psychology, University of Birmingham. The successful candidate will work on a 5-year project funded within an ERC Consolidator Grant to investigate the role of brain oscillations for human episodic memory. The project focusses on intracranial single-unit recordings in human epilepsy patients and computational modelling of oscillations in memory networks. The postdoctoral researcher will design and conduct experiments with patients in Birmingham and Germany (Erlangen), analyse electrophysiological data and publish the results in international peer reviewed journals. The researcher should also use computational modelling as a tool to generate hypothesis and test the empirical data. The person we are looking for will have demonstrable experience on human or animal electrophysiology and oscillations as measured with EEG/MEG or, ideally, intracranial EEG. They should have a background, or strong interest, in computational modelling of neural networks.

They will have an advanced degree (preferably a PhD in Psychology, Computational Neuroscience, or Neuroscience). They must be fluent using Matlab and related toolboxes for analysing brain oscillatory data (i.e. Fieldtrip). We require an individual with very good communication skills. Strong interest in working in a clinical environment is required, and previous clinical experience is a plus.

This position will be held in the Memory and Oscillations Lab and will be supervised by Dr Simon Hanslmayr. The lab is a dynamic active group that includes several other Post docs and PhD students and provides a supportive and stimulating environment in which to work.

Start date is 1 October 2015.
