[D-multisensory] PhD/early postdoc positions in brain plasticity available in Oxford University
Two fellowship positions are available for a period of 3 years (starting October 2012), tenable at Oxford University, on a project entitled “Adaptive Brain Computations” (ABC) which is a multi-disciplinary research and training programme which aims to integrate the study of learning and brain plasticity to promote wellbeing and advance healthcare interventions. |
Candidates will be employed by the University on an EC Marie Curie Initial Training Network award and, if suitable, registered for a DPhil. Candidates will work within the Plasticity Group at the FMRIB Centre, under the supervision of Professor Heidi Johansen-Berg. Our research aims to understand how learning, recovery of function and changes in the environment, result in plastic changes in the human brain. The work will combine brain imaging, brain stimulation and behavioural techniques to study healthy volunteers, stroke sufferers and people with sensory loss or limb amputation. Involvement in the MC ITN network provides exciting opportunities for high-level research training, international travel and exchange between labs.
The EC funding for this position starts from £35,400 (depending on employer deductions, personal circumstances and the exchange rate to be notified by the EC), which includes an annual living allowance and a mobility allowance (to cover the expenses associated with working in a different country). Under the terms of the EC funding, which aims to promote mobility within the research community, to be eligible for the post you must not have been resident in the UK for more than 12 months in the past three years.
The closing date for applications is Monday 2 April 2012 and interviews will be held on Monday 16 April 2012.
