Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for up to 1 year in the first instance.
Applications are invited for an experienced and enthusiastic cognitive neuroscientist/neuroimagery to work on an ERC grant on language processing. The focus will be on investigating how listeners understand speech, using MEG neuroimaging and statistical language modelling techniques.
The applicant will join the Centre for Speech, Language and the Brain, an inter disciplinary team led by Professor L.K. Tyler. The Centre has access to a research-dedicated 3T Siemens MR scanner, and EEG and MEG facilities. We currently use a variety of analysis methods on MEG data-sets, and in particular multivariate analysis methods such as Representational Similarity Analyses.
Applicants should have a PhD (or equivalent) with excellent computer programming (especially MATLAB and/or Python) and statistical skills, experience of MEG analyses, particularly in using multivariate neuroimaging methods for MEG data and MEG source localization methods. Applicants should have experience in research on spoken language processing (neurobiology of language and/or statistical language modelling). Given the nature of the research, candidates should be native English speakers or fully fluent in English.
