This position is funded by an EPSRC grant the School has received in collaboration with colleagues in the School of Computing and Communications at Lancaster and in the Institute of Brain, Behaviour and Mental Health at Manchester University. The project will investigate novel methods for the monitoring of dementia using eye movements.

Eye movement and cognitive health are closely linked, including growing evidence of markers for dementia diagnosis. We aim to advance eye tracking to enable ambient monitoring of eye movement in the context of everyday activity, coupled with development of novel methods for data mining of eye movement. Our vision is that rather than patients having to attend a clinic for assessment, eye movement data can be collected and analysed in settings where the technology is ambient and people’s behaviour is natural.

This position will focus on understanding the relationship between eye movements and dementia, building on existing work that has demonstrated important differences in anti-saccade eye-tracking tasks between people with Alzheimer’s Disease and healthy controls. You should have experience in working with clinical populations and neuropsychological assessment, and data management. The research will be experimental and you will need to have excellent skills in research design and statistical analyses.

We seek applications from enthusiastic individuals who are strongly motivated to help push the boundaries of knowledge in our research. You must have an excellent a PhD in Psychology, neuroscience or related discipline. It is essential that you have experience as indicated above, coupled with a strong interest in working as part of an interdisciplinary team.

Lancaster's Department of Psychology offers a stimulating environment for research career development. You will join a vibrant community of over 27 members of academic staff and a thriving community of post-doctoral researchers and PhD students, be part of an ambitious and exciting research group, and receive strong support for development of your research profile.

The position is available for a fixed term of 3.5 years from 31 March 2015. Applications should include a statement of research interest.

Informal enquiries are welcome and should be addressed to Dr Trevor Crawford, (email: t.crawford@lancaster.ac.uk; Tel: 01524 593761).
