Department of Psychiatry, Warneford Hospital, Oxford
Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant to work in the Attention Group (http://ohba.medsci.ox.ac.uk/groups/AttentionGroup), a cognitive neuroscience research group led by Dr Mark Stokes within the Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity. You will be on a project exploring how rapid changes in prefrontal cortex connectivity contribute to maintenance in working memory.
The post is funded and fixed-term for 3 years from 1 April 2015.
You will be responsible for conducting analyses on intracranial neurophysiological data, using standard scientific packages (e.g. MATLAB), including connectivity and pattern analyses. You will prepare results for publication and also be expected to present research findings both nationally and internationally.
You will have or be working towards completion of a PhD in neuroscience or a relevant area along with a research background in working memory (or similar). Experience in analysing and handling diverse types neurophysiological data is essential, as is knowledge of statistical methods applied to behavioural neuroscientific data. Experience in computational modelling would be an advantage.
Only applications received before 12.00 midday on Wednesday 11 February 2015 can be considered. You will be required to upload a covering letter explaining how you meet the job requirements and details of two referees as part of your online application.
