Dear EEGLAB list,

Applications are invited for an MRC-funded 3.5-year PhD project working with Dr Jason Taylor and Dr Deborah Talmi at the University of Manchester. The project will use multimodal neuroimaging methods (EEG, fMRI) and advanced analysis techniques (dynamic causal modelling, DCM; representational similarity analysis, RSA) to investigate interactions between processing fluency and recognition memory (familiarity and recollection). Start date is October 2016, with full support provided (MRC DTP scheme) including tuition fees, stipend (£14, 057 pa), and conference/travel allowance. Due to the nature of the funding, this position is open to UK/EU nationals only.

The full project description and further information can be found here:

Applications will be considered until 25th November.

Applicants should hold (or be expected to obtain) a minimum upper-second class undergraduate degree in a related area. A relevant Masters degree or equivalent research experience would be an advantage.

Please direct applications in the following format to Dr Jason Taylor (jason.taylor at manchester.ac.uk):
• Academic CV
• Official academic transcripts
• Contact details for two suitable referees
• A personal statement (750 words maximum) outlining your suitability for the study, what you hope to achieve from the PhD and your research experience to date.

Any questions about the project or application process should also be directed to Dr Taylor (jason.taylor at manchester.ac.uk).

Best wishes,

Dr. Jason Taylor
