An 18-month fixed-term full time Postdoctoral Research Associate (PDRA) position is available at the Department of Psychology at Durham University. The successful candidate will join the research project NewSense led by Prof Marko Nardini and funded by the European Research Council. The project is studying people’s abilities to learn to use new sensory signals to augment their perceptual and motor skills.

For a full description of the project and requirements, please see the detailed job specification via the “Apply now” link on this page.

The post-doc position is part of a 5-year ERC-funded project studying people’s abilities to learn to use new sensory signals to enhance their perceptual and motor skills, using psychophysics, neuroimaging, and comparison of behavioural and neuroimaging data with different model predictions.

The PDRA will work as part of a team including a Research Assistant, a PhD student, and a second PDRA, together with the PI and collaborators with expertise in neuroimaging, low vision and multisensory plasticity, and computational modelling. Depending on their previous skills and experience, there is scope for the PDRA to develop their own area of focus and, where needed, to gain training in additional techniques. As part of a 5-year €2m project, the PDRA will have access to outstanding resources including equipment, scanning time, and travel for conferences and collaboration.

The successful candidate will have a strong academic track-record, including experience in designing, carrying out, analysing and interpreting high quality quantitative research on human perception. Experience with any of the following topics and approaches will be a strong advantage: model-based analyses of behavioural or neuroimaging data, multisensory perception, visual depth perception, material perception, fMRI / MVPA, TMS, kinematic / force measures, perception and action, perceptual learning, training and follow-up protocols.
