Research Assistant/Associate (Fixed Term)

Applications are invited for one Wellcome Trust funded Research Assistant/ Associate position starting 01/09/2019. The successful candidate will be based in the Department of Psychology and will join the Cambridge Consciousness and Cognition Lab, working directly for Dr Daniel Bor (https://www.psychol.cam.ac.uk/people/daniel-bor-dr). The lab investigates the behavioural and neural features of consciousness and cognition during normal wakefulness, as well as different states of consciousness and its transitions. The research spans normal and altered states of consciousness, disturbed consciousness due to psychiatric or neurological conditions, as well as severe disorders of consciousness.

Within this remit, Dr Bor is investigating how conscious level can be quantified (neurally), and how this is modulated by cognition. Furthermore, he is exploring the neural markers of individual differences in cognitive reserve, both in normal subjects using a drowsiness-neural-strain paradigm, and in Alzheimer's disease patients at various stages of the disease, with the eventual aim to pharmacologically boost patients with poor cognitive reserve, thus significantly improving quality of life. To explore these issues, Dr Bor is primarily using big data neuroimaging datasets in MEG and fMRI, both with normal and Alzheimer's disease samples. Targeted new data will also be acquired, in a large simultaneous EEG-fMRI-pharmacology study. The successful candidate will work with Dr Bor and his team on this project, primarily by developing and using advanced brain-scanning data processing and analysis methods, including machine learning techniques. Most of this work will require programming skills, especially in Matlab, but python and C++ programming may also be involved. In addition, the Research Assistant/Associate may lead data acquisition on new neuroimaging studies.

Applicants must have a good science, computer science, mathematics or engineering degree, and preferably a higher degree or PhD in a relevant subject.

Experience in programming is essential. Experience in M/EEG or fMRI analysis would be highly desirable.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available until 31 May 2022 in the first instance.

Research Associate/Lab Manager (Part Time, Fixed Term)

We are seeking a Lab Manager with a background in animal-based research, whose primary role will be to assist in managing Professor Nicola Clayton's corvid lab. The post-holder will also be required to contribute to research-led teaching. Please note that participation in research is likely to be on the level of co-supervision, where appropriate, rather than conducting own research, given that the primary focus of this part-time role is on lab management and research-led teaching (see % of duties in further particulars). This job is likely to be ideally suited to a Post-doctoral Researcher looking to expand on their lab management and teaching skills in addition to their previous research background.

The role holder will join Professor Clayton's project investigating causal reasoning in corvids and humans, funded by the European Research Council (ERC), and be based within Comparative Cognition Lab (see: http://www.psychol.cam.ac.uk/people/nicola-clayton) in the Department of Psychology.

The research-led teaching will involve contributing to supporting and maintaining the University's national and international reputation for excellence in teaching. This will include planning, preparing and delivering lectures and practical classes on comparative cognition and animal behaviour, as well as providing guidance to students and marking exam papers.

Consequently, it is essential that the post-holder has a PhD in Experimental Psychology or a related discipline. It is essential that they have experience of lab management in an animal-based research environment, ideally with species such as corvids, parrots or large mammals, as opposed to more 'standardised' lab species such as rats or mice. It is essential that the role holder has experience in comparative cognition and animal behaviour research, and/or related topics. It is desirable that they have experience of teaching these and/or related topics at university level. It is essential that the post holder is self-motivated and able to work independently, as well as as part of a team. They must have excellent organisational, leadership and communication skills.

Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher

Marie-Curie PhD post: How differences in the earliest social interactions drive emerging cortical specialization

We are seeking a talented early stage researcher (ESRs) wishing to pursue a Ph.D. in the field of developmental psychology and cognitive neuroscience. The position is part of SAPIENS, a pan-European Marie Sk¿odowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (EU Horizon 2020 Programme), which aims to investigate how the dynamics of early social exchanges support the development of the social brain. SAPIENS combines advances in ecological, mobile real-time brain and behaviour measurement, data modelling and artificial intelligence approaches to train a new generation of researchers in implementing these ground-breaking approaches to early social development.

The candidates have to meet (and provide proof that they meet) the following MSC-ITN criteria: 1. Mobility Rule: candidate must not have resided or carried out his/her main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country where the position is based (UK) for more than 12 months in the last 3 years. 2. Early Stage Researcher: the candidate is in the first four years of his/her research career and has not been awarded a doctoral degree. 3. The candidate must have a first degree in psychology, cognitive science, medical physics, mathematics or other related subject, and meet criteria for registration as a PhD student at the University of Cambridge. The ESRs will receive an attractive salary in accordance with the MSCA regulations for Early Stage Researchers.

Working in a team, the successful candidate will investigate how variation in the very earliest postnatal social interactions (hours and days) in human newborns influences the emergence of temporal lobe social brain function using fNIRS and EEG. As this is the phase of life with the most dramatic changes in sensory and interactive experience, it is the best age point of focus for seeking associations with emerging brain function. We will densely sample the social experience and interactions of the newborn in the home environment over this period to determine the association between very early experience and the emergence of specific social responses in the temporal lobe.

We are looking for a talented and motivated ESR (3 years, 100%) who will be supervised by Professor Mark Johnson and Dr Sarah Lloyd-Fox. The project will utilize a range of multidisciplinary techniques to study the developing brain. These include techniques for measuring infant brain development like EEG and NIRS. The successful candidate will be embedded in an active and social group of PhD students and junior and senior researchers with expertise across typical and atypical development. The SAPIENS network also offers a unique program of pan-European training in specialized and generalizable skills on topics such as project management, academic and communication skills, advanced analysis techniques in neuroimaging, typical and atypical brain development, entrepreneurship, translation, career development, and clinical diagnostics.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 3 years in the first instance.

Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the successful candidate will be required to undergo a standard Disclosure and Barring Service check.
