2 PhD and 1 PostDoc positions in Computational Cognitive Neuroimaging; University of Birmingham, UK
In our natural dynamic environment the senses are constantly bombarded with many different signals. How does the human brain integrate information from multiple senses during perception? To study the neural mechanisms of multisensory integration and learning, we combine psychophysics, functional imaging (fMRI, EEG/MEG & interleaved TMS-fMRI) and models of Bayesian Inference and learning.
The Computational Cognitive Neuroimaging Group (Prof Uta Noppeney) is seeking 1 enthusiastic PostDoc and 2 PhD candidates. Applicants should have a strong quantitative background and a degree in neuroscience, psychology, computer science, physics, medicine or related areas. Prior experience in functional imaging, MatLab, data analysis and/or machine learning would be an advantage.
The lab is part of the Computational Neuroscience and Cognitive Robotics Centre and the Department of Psychology of the University of Birmingham, UK. The centre provides an excellent multidisciplinary and collaborative research environment combining expertise in cognitive neuroimaging, psychophysics and computational neuroscience. The psychology department was rated 3rd in the UK research assessment exercise.
