The Department of Psychology at the University of York is seeking to appoint a Research Associate in Cognitive Neuroscience. The work will focus on how neural representations in the brain underpin our ability to see. You will join an active and friendly lab led by the Head of Department (Professor Tim Andrews). Current work is focussed on understanding the way in which we perceive and recognize faces, objects and scenes, particularly using natural viewing paradigms.
You will conduct research under the supervision of the Head of Department and contribute to the production of research in cognitive neuroscience. Furthermore, you will assist in the identification and development of potential areas of research. You will be encouraged to collaborate with other members of the lab, but also to lead your own projects. You will have the opportunity to use multiple neuroimaging techniques and approaches to explore these issues. This position would suit an independent researcher with excellent technical skills in neuroimaging analysis, programming and an established track record in cognitive neuroscience.
This post is available on a fixed term basis for up to 3 years.
Interview date: TBC
