Contract Duration: 36 months
A 36-month fixed-term full time post-doctoral Research Associate position is available at the Department of Psychology at Durham University, UK. The successful candidate will join a research project led by Prof Holger Wiese in collaboration with Dr Soazig Casteau and Dr Ulrik Beierholm, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). The project aims to understand the cognitive and neural underpinnings of how we learn new faces. You will combine psychometric, behavioural, eye-tracking, and electrophysiological (EEG/ERP) measures to investigate how faces become represented in the brain over time, as well as how situational factors and individual differences (both with respect to the learner and the to-be-learnt face) influence this process. The project team will investigate these questions using state-of-the-art computational modelling approaches. You will have a purpose-buil! t and ful ly equipped EEG and eye-tracking lab at your disposal to develop novel experimental paradigms and cutting-edge data analysis techniques. Research costs will be fully covered by the grant. You will work alongside a collaborative and dynamic team addressing complementary research questions.
The successful applicant will be expected to have a background in visual perception and/or face recognition research. Methodological experience with EEG, eye-tracking and/or computational modelling is desirable.
This post is fixed term for 36 months, as ESRC funding is currently available for this fixed period only.
