Dear list:

A 3-year research assistant/research associate position is available to work with Dr Quoc Vuong (Newcastle University, UK) and Dr Bruno Rossion (University of Louvain, Belgium) on an ESRC funded project entitled: A neuropsychological approach to dissect face perception and perceptual expertise. The proposed research combines neuropsychological cases, behavioural training, computer graphics, and functional imaging to understand the mechanisms of face perception and expertise. The successful candidate will train and test individuals with acquired prosopagnosia, scan healthy control participants, analyze the data, and publish the results. The post is based at Newcastle but there will be funded trips to Belgium for patient-testing and meetings. The candidate will also be expected to present at conferences and participate in public engagement activities. Applicants with research experience in testing patients, psychophysics, and/or imaging as evidenced by publications in these areas are strongly encouraged to apply. Familiarity with programming (particularly matlab and the Psychtoolbox) and fMRI analyses (spm, fsl, brain voyager) are desirable. Applicants need to be from EU-member countries.

Deadline for application: May 27, 2012

Start date: ~ July/August 2012
