Research Fellow

Fixed-term contract until 31 July 2010

The Wales Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience (WICN) is a collaborative project funded initially for three years by the Welsh Assembly Government, involving partnership between three of the UK’s most successful Psychology departments at Bangor University, Cardiff University and Swansea University.

WICN funding has created the opportunity to appoint a Research Fellow based in the 5* School of Psychology in Bangor. You will have the opportunity to pursue a research programme in Cognitive Neuroscience (broadly construed) alongside some of the leaders in the field. The post-holder is particularly encouraged to pursue collaborative work with other academics either within the WICN network or in outside institutions.

You will have a PhD in Psychology or a related discipline as well as a background and experience of research of international quality in one of the School’s specialist cognitive neuroscience areas, such as Perception and Action, Attention, Learning and Memory, Emotion, Cognitive Rehabilitation, Social Cognitive Neuroscience, or Language. You will also participate in WICN dissemination and outreach activity in line with your skills and experience. The successful applicant will be provided with a modest starting budget in order to initiate research projects.
The School of Psychology offers an outstanding research environment. Cognitive Neuroscience facilities include: an in-house, research-dedicated 3T MRI scanner; several EEG labs; fMRI-guided TMS; eye-tracking labs; haptic simulators; and robotic force-feedback devices. The School also supports a world-leading neurological patient panel. More details about the School can be found at: More details about WICN can be found at

The successful candidate will be expected to start as soon as possible and the post is available for a fixed-term period until 31st July, 2010.
