*Cam-CAN postdoctoral researcher *

*University of Cambridge, Department of Psychology*

*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 
physiological ageing.

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 

Applications in the form of a covering letter, CV with full publication 
list, and completed cover sheet (CHRIS/6 Parts 1 and 3 only, including 
details of three referees) shouldbe sent to Mrs M Dixon at

Brain, Department of Psychology, University of Cambridge, Downing 
Street, Cambridge, CB2 3EB. The CHRIS/6 can be downloaded from
