Current Vacancies at UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience.

Post-doctoral research positions in the cognitive neuroscience of Space and Memory

Two post-doc positions available at the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience with Neil Burgess’ Space and Memory group. Posts are until Sept 2021 in the first instance, extension contingent on further funding.

Candidates will perform research in human cognitive and computational neuroscience that should complement the group’s current work, which includes: MEG decoding of sequential planning (Kornysheva et al., 2019); 3T and 7T fMRI of neural mechanisms in imagery, memory, navigation (Horner et al., 2015; Horner et al. 2016; Grande et al., 2017)  the effects of emotional content on memory (Bisby & Burgess, 2017); intracranial recording in epilepsy patients (Bush et al., 2017); computational modelling of imagery, memory and the roles of grid and place cells (Bicanski & Burgess, 2018Bicanski & Burgess, 2019).

Researchers will collaborate with related work on grid and place cells in rodent virtual reality (Chen et al., 2019) and related groups at the ICN, Welcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging,  Sainsbury Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour and the wider UCL neuroscience community.
