*University of Glasgow*

*College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences*

*Research Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology*

*Research Assistant/Associate*

Vacancy Ref: 018647

Salary: Grade 6/7, £28,098 - £31,604/£34,520 - £38,833 per annum

We are seeking to recruit a Research Assistant/Research Associate to work
in the Centre for Social, Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience (cSCAN) and
the Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging (CCNi) within the Research Institute
of Neuroscience & Psychology at the University of Glasgow.

The post-holder will contribute to a 3-year EPSRC-funded project on
“Understanding Scenes and Events through Joint Parsing, Cognitive Reasoning
and Lifelong Learning” working with Professor Philippe Schyns.  This is
part of an exciting multi-centre collaboration involving psychologists,
neuroscientists and computer vision experts in the US and the UK, with most
of the funding for the consortium coming from the US Department of Defence
(MURI).  There is a strong possibility that the funding will be extended
for a further two years (to 2021).

The successful researcher will design, conduct and analyze research to
investigate the factors that influence information sampling from visual
scenes.  The researchers will also write and communicate results as
scientific papers and in scientific presentations at national and
international conferences.  This post will involve close collaboration with
other members of the MURI consortium, including Phil Torr’s group in Oxford
and Andrew Glennerster’s group in Reading using virtual reality to study
the representation of 3D scenes and also collaborations with Antje
Nuthmann’s group at University of Edinburgh and George Malcolm’s group at
University of East Anglia.

Applicants should have (or expect to receive in the near future) a PhD in
psychology, neuroscience, or computer science.  Applicants from another
relevant discipline with a strong analytical background and a strong
enthusiasm to learn about psychology and neuroscience will also be
considered. Programming experience is essential (e.g. MATLAB).

This post is full time with funding available until 28 February 2019 in the
first instance.

Informal enquires may be made to Prof Philippe Schyns (
