Postdoctoral Research Assistant: Neuroimaging

University of Oxford - Department of Psychiatry

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research assistant to join Professor Morten Kringelbach’s research group, investigating the functional neuroanatomy of parenting and caregiving. The project will employ neuroimaging techniques such as MEG, DTI and fMRI to better understand the structural and functional connectivity of caregiving in health and disease. The post is fixed- term (funded for 2 years from 1 January 2017).  

You will have an important role in collecting and analysing neuroimaging and behavioural data, ensuring that systems for collection, management and entry of data are fit for purpose and quality assured.  You will produce regular reports for collaborators and Data Monitoring and Ethics Committees and will work closely with Professor Kringelbach.

You will have or be close to completion of a PhD in biomedical sciences, along with experience of neuroimaging analysis and modelling (MEG,DTI,fMRI and EEG) of sleep. With excellent communication skills, you will have expertise with computer programming (especially Matlab and/or C++). Experience with psychological testing of caregivers would be an advantage as would experience of managing a discrete area of a research project.

You will be required to upload a supporting statement, a CV, and details of two referees as part of your online application.

The closing date for this post is 12.00 midday on Wednesday 14 December 2016.
