Applications are invited for a post-doctoral scientist to join a team lead by Dr Matt Davis conducting cognitive neuroscientific research on speech processing. The primary objective of this position is to devise, implement, analyse and disseminate behavioural and brain imaging studies of speech perception and comprehension using Magneto- and Electro-encephalography (MEG/EEG).

In addition, you will have excellent organisational and communication skills, ensuring effective collaboration with junior and senior staff.

The salary will be in the range of £27,084 - £30,486 per annum, depending upon qualifications and experience. This is supported by a flexible pay and reward policy, 30 days annual leave entitlement, and MRC final salary Pension Scheme.  On site car and bicycle parking is available.
