A Post-doctoral Research Fellow is available to work with Zoe Kourtzi
(Psychology) and Peter Tino (Computer Science) at the University of
Birmingham. The successful applicant will combine brain imaging methods
(fMRI, EEG, TMS), computational analysis, behavioural measurements and
modelling to examine the neural basis of learning and brain plasticity. The
work makes use of state-of-the-art brain imaging techniques and analysis
Research will be conducted within well-equipped labs that incorporate a
range of bespoke equipment. The School of Psychology provides an excellent
working environment with a pronounced research focus and international
expertise in Vision Science, Behavioural Neuroscience and Cognitive
Neuroscience. Facilities include an Imaging Centre with integrated
equipment for the study of human brain and behaviour (3T scanner, EEG) as
well as numerous virtual reality devices and eye trackers. The work will be
conducted in close collaboration with colleagues in Computer Science. Our
research group further benefits from regular interactions with a wide
network of international collaborators.
Candidates should hold or expect to hold a Ph.D. in Cognitive
Neuroscience, Computer Science, Psychology, Physics, Mathematics or a
related field. Programming skills (e.g. Matlab, C) are essential and
experience with brain imaging methods is desirable.
