Centre for Speech, Language, and the Brain (CSLB)

Department of Psychology
 

Applications are invited for an experienced and enthusiastic cognitive neuroscientist with strong computational skills to work on an ERC Advanced Investigator grant on the neurobiology of language processing using MEG neuroimaging.

The applicant will join the Centre for Speech, Language and the Brain (at the University of Cambridge http://cslb.psychol.cam.ac.uk), an inter-disciplinary team led by Professor Lorraine Tyler. The Centre has access to a research-dedicated 3T Siemens MR scanner, and EEG and MEG facilities. We currently use a variety of analysis methods on MEG and fMRI data-sets, and in particular multivariate analysis methods such as Representational Similarity Analyses.

Applicants must have a PhD in cognitive neuroscience, computer science, or a related discipline. They are expected to have an interest in the neurobiology of cognitive functions, advanced statistical skills, and excellent computer programming (especially MATLAB and/or Python) skills. Experience of MEG analyses, particularly in using multivariate neuroimaging methods for MEG data and MEG source localization methods, are highly desirable. Relevant post-doctoral experience is an advantage.
Given the nature of the research, candidates should be fully fluent in English. This is a fixed-term post subject to further funding.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available until 30 June 2020 in the first instance.
