The UCL Cognitive, Perceptual and Brain Sciences (CPB) Research Department, within the Division of Psychology and Language Sciences, is planning the future appointment of at least two and likely more academic posts (at Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Reader or Professor level) to complement existing strengths. For one post the emphasis is on multimodal communication, with ideal candidates having research interests that include sign language/deafness research. For a second post, the emphasis is on Decision and Cognitive Sciences. However, we would also encourage other candidates with an excellent record of internationally renowned research in other areas represented within the department (including computational and animal neuroscience) to express their interest in the posts.
UCL CPB offers a top research and teaching environment with research covering behavioural neuroscience, perceptual and cognitive sciences and cognitive neuroscience. Members of the department are directly involved in the activities of a number of research centres, including the Deafness, Cognition and Language (DCAL) centre, the Institute of Behavioural Neuroscience (IBN), the Birkbeck/UCL Centre for Neuroimaging
(BUCNI) and the Centre for Mathematics and Physics in the Life Sciences and Experimental Biology (CoMPLEX). They further contribute to the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience (ICN) and the Wellcome Department of Imaging Neuroscience. Research facilities available to members of staff comprise state-of-the-art equipment for most types of behavioural research including a multimodal communication laboratory, animal housing facility, MRI scanner and TMS facilities. At this stage, we invite informal expression of interest (including a CV and statement of research interests) which should be directed to Kate Jeffery by email at firstname.lastname@example.org before October 20 2010.
