[visionlist] Reminder – 3.5 year Postdoctoral Position in Social Neuroscience at Bangor University, UK

Applications are invited for a 3.5-year, full time postdoctoral position with Dr. Kami Koldewyn in the
Developmental Social Vision lab in the
School of Psychology at Bangor University (Wales, UK). The post is part of a European Research Council funded Starting Grant focused on Developmental Social Neuroscience. The project, ‘Becoming Social’, investigates
developmental change in social perception, social learning and the social brain in late-childhood/early adolescence.

The successful applicant will be the coordinator of the first major research stream of the Becoming Social project, which focuses on understanding the typical adult system and developing tasks and methods that will be applied throughout the five-year project
in the longitudinal developmental streams. Methods used may include behavioural, eye-tracking and neuroimaging (e.g. fMRI, DWI) measures and the postdoctoral researcher who fills this post will be very involved, both conceptually and technically, in the design
and construction of research questions and the tasks to address them.

Duties will include working to develop tasks and materials that will be used across the entire project (including not only typical adults but children/adolescents aged 9-16 both with and without an Autism Spectrum Disorder). The postdoctoral researcher will
be a key member of the Becoming Social team and will work closely with other team members.

A PhD or equivalent in a relevant field (e.g., Psychology, Neuroscience, Cognitive Science, Biomedical Imaging/Engineering or Computer Science), as well as outstanding written and spoken communication skills are essential. In addition, this particular post
requires significant technical and/or neuroimaging abilities. The successful candidate needs to be comfortable with tackling new imaging and analysis methods and have the technical chops to do so.

Closing date for applications:  10th April, 2017.

Proposed start date: Between May 1st and July 1st 2017 (though exact timing is flexible for the right candidate).
