A three year opportunity is available for a post-doctoral research fellow with expertise in the acquisition and analysis of human fMRI data to study brain function and cognition in children and adults.
The post-holder will work within the lab of Prof Stephen Mayhew to study the neurophysiological origins of brain function as well as to collaboratively support broader fMRI research within the School of Psychology and the Institute of Health and Neurodevelopment.
In particular, the role will aim to combine fMRI with EEG and/or MEG recordings to elucidate research questions such as understanding: how dynamic brain network activity contributes to task performance and cognition throughout the lifespan; the neural signatures of negative BOLD fMRI responses and how they reflect markers of neural and behavioural inhibition in children and young adults; neurovascular coupling between EEG/MEG and fMRI BOLD measures of brain function throughout childhood. We will fully support you to develop applications for independent fellowships to follow your initial post.
This role is subject to satisfactory Enhanced DBS check.
