Research Associate/Fellow Vacancy at the University of Nottingham (Glasgow)

Applications are invited for a Research Associate/Fellow (until Dec 2024), based in the Scottish Section of the University of Nottingham’s Hearing Sciences department, located in Glasgow. This post is part of Dr Lauren Hadley's UKRI funded programme, which focuses on how people process speech when listening in conversation, and, specifically, how this differs between people with normal and impaired hearing (https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/research/groups/hs-predict/index.aspx).

Research Associate/Fellow (until Dec 2024). The successful candidate will develop and execute specific elements of the programme to address the mechanisms involved in predicting speech in conversation. The post-holder will use electroencephalography (EEG) to address oscillatory behaviour, and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to investigate motor simulation. They will have the opportunity to gain supervision experience and to lead their own studies as the project progresses. Candidates must have a PhD or equivalent experience in cognitive science, experimental psychology, neuroscience or a related area. Key requirements are strong statistical skills, experience designing neural experiments with human participants, and enthusiasm for collaborating with others.

DEADLINE: 17th Dec
