Postdoctoral Research Associate, University of Bristol


Applications are invited for the position of Postdoctoral Research Associate in the School of Experimental Psychology, University of Bristol. The post is associated with a three-year research project entitled “The easyNet system for implementing and visualizing cognitive models”, which is supported by a grant from the Leverhulme Trust. The project involves the continuation of the development of easyNet, a general multi-platform computer package for the interactive, graphical development of computational models of cognition. 

This post, one of two associated with the project, is a full-time position with a duration of 36 months, from 1st March 2014. We seek a candidate with excellent programming skills (preferably in C++, or another object-oriented languge) and a strong interest in cognitive science. Working closely with Prof Colin Davis (University of Bristol) and Dr James Adelman (University of Warwick), your principal responsibility will be to write GUI refinements and ports, computational plug-ins, and modelling scripts. These contributions will be associated with co-authorship on papers, including those combining these efforts with empirical work also conducted on the grant. You will also provide guidance to easyNet users. This will involve managing a mailing list and a website, and producing documentation for the easyNet system. You will also be expected to attend a number of national and international conferences in order to present work on the project and further interact with users.

Informal enquiries are welcome and should be made to Prof Colin Davis, or (0117) 928 7591.

Closing Date: 27-Jan-2014
