Jobs and Studentships

Research Associate in Cognitive Neuroscience (Fixed Term)

From Jobs at the University of Cambridge. Published on Mar 13, 2015.

One full-time postdoctoral research position is available immediately to work with Professor Trevor W. Robbins and Professor Barbara J. Sahakian to investigate fronto-striatal systems in impulsive-compulsive disorders, as part of a programme funded via a Wellcome Trust Senior Investigator Award to Prof TW Robbins. The post holder will work under the umbrella of the University of Cambridge Behavioural and Clinical Neuroscience Institute (BCNI, Director: Prof Robbins).

The role holder will be part of a multi-disciplinary research group working towards elucidating the overarching question of how impulsive-compulsive symptoms of psychiatric disorders can be understood in terms of common aberrations of psychological processes arising from dysfunction of discrete neural systems. Within this programme the role holder will work predominantly on neuroimaging, neuropsychological and psychopharmacological aspects.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in cognitive neuroscience, psychology, or related disciplines. Previous experience in learning theory, cognitive or clinical neuropsychology and/or neuroimaging, as well as neurocomputational methods, would be an advantage as would be experience in interacting with patients with OCD. Specific skills in functional connectivity and other neuroimaging methodologies are desirable, but not essential, as training will be provided.

Informal enquires should be directed to Prof TW Robbins, email:twr2@cam.ac.uk
