Research Assistant

University of Glasgow - College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences/Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology

We are seeking to recruit a Research Assistant to work in the Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging within the Research Institute of Neuroscience & Psychology at the University of Glasgow.

The laboratory of Edwin M. Robertson is dedicated to understanding memory processing, and specifically those “off-line” processes that sculpt and shape memories after their acquisition. The researcher selected for this post will design, conduct and analyze research designed to deepen our understanding of off-line memory processing, and write and communicate results as scientific papers and in scientific presentations at national and international conferences.

Applicants should have (or expect to receive in the near future) a PhD in neuroscience, cognitive science, psychology, mathematics, computer science or another relevant discipline, with a strong analytical background. Ideally, applicants will have direct experience using MATLAB as a tool for the conduct and analysis of experiments. Experience with either human neuroimaging or brain stimulation techniques would be an advantage. Any applicant will have enthusiasm, and a clear, demonstrable capacity for acquiring expertise in these techniques.

The Centre has both a wide array of neuroimaging (fMRI, MEG and EEG) and brain stimulation techniques (TMS, direct and alternating current stimulation), and critically has the proven capacity to successful integrate these techniques together. The Centre has an international reputation for its work in Cognitive Neuroscience, is home to three Wellcome Trust Investigators, several National Academy Members (Royal Society; Edinburgh), and is housed within the School of Psychology; one of the top Psychology departments in the UK.

Funding is available for this post until 14 August 2019.

Informal enquires may be made to Professor Edwin Robertson (
