*Vacancy Ref: PJ00953*
*Salary: £27,854 - £36,298 pa*
Applications are invited for a 2-year post-doctoral researcher to join
the Cambridge Centre for Ageing and Neuroscience (Cam-CAN). This centre
brings together a large group of researchers across the University of
Cambridge and at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit (MRC-CBSU)
who aim to relate brain changes to cognitive changes over the adult
lifespan (covering ages 18-88). The appointee will work with a unique
population-representative sample of 700 adults on whom we have collected
extensive cognitive and neural measures. A subset of these individuals
will be run in a further set of fMRI and MEG studies designed to probe
major cognitive functions. The Cam-CAN project will integrate across
these data-sets using a variety of methods, relating changes in neural
structure and function over the lifespan to changes in cognitive
function and capacity.
The role of the postholder will be to continue ongoing analyses of the
700 dataset, carry through the second stage fMRI and MEG studies, and
play a key role in integrating the various Cam-CAN cognitive and imaging
data-sets using multivariate and multimodal neuroimaging analysis
methods. The appointee will be a cognitive neuroscientist with a strong
background in imaging and imaging statistics, and cognitive and/or
Candidates should have, or be in the final stages of obtaining, a PhD in
cognitive neuroscience, neuroimaging methods, applied statistics or
cognitive ageing. Knowledge of and experience in advanced imaging
analyses, particularly connectivity analysis is essential, and it would
be an advantage to have some experience of MEG/EEG and/or fMRI.
Excellent statistical, computer programming (MATLAB and/or Python) and
MEG analysis (SPM, Fieldtrip) skills are essential. Candidates should be
careful, efficient, able to communicate effectively, and enjoy working
as part of a diverse and energetic interdisciplinary team.
The applicant will be based in the Centre for Speech, Language and the
Brain, Department of Psychology in central Cambridge. The Centre has
access to a research-dedicated 3T Siemens MR scanner, EEG and MEG
facilities housed at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit in
