Research Fellow at the College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter


The College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter, wishes to recruit an Associate Research Fellow or Research Fellow to participate in an extensive research project that focuses on the cognitive and neural mechanisms allowing humans to change their behaviour. This ERC (European Research Council) funded post is available from 1 March 2013 to 29 February 2016. The start date is negotiable. The expectation is that this postdoctoral Fellowship will, in the normal course of events, lead to the candidate being considered for a permanent position in the College of Life and Environmental Sciences at the University of Exeter.

The successful applicant will have a background in cognitive/experimental psychology or cognitive neuroscience, a good knowledge of the executive/attention control literature, and knowledge of the neuroscience techniques TMS and EEG. Applicants should be able to analyse EEG data. The successful applicant will be responsible for the development of experiments (in collaboration with the research team), collection and analysis of behavioural and neuroscience data, the publication and dissemination of the results, and will be involved in the supervision of research assistants, MSc and PhD students.
