ICN Vacancies

Current Vacancies at UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience.

Professor/Associate Professor

We seek to appoint an internationally recognised leader in the field of cognitive neuroscience at the level of Associate Professor (Grade 9) or Professor (Grade 10).  The UCL Academic Careers Framework provides detailed information regarding the criteria required to meet these two grades.

The successful applicant will play an important role in shaping the future development of the ICN and be vital to strengthening ICN’s position as a centre of excellence for research and teaching in the field. S/he will have an international reputation in the field, a strong track record of relevant peer-reviewed academic publications and of obtaining significant and sustained research grant funding. We seek candidates who will forge wide-ranging collaborations with the broader community of researchers at UCL and beyond. Applicants are invited to apply from across the broad field of cognitive neuroscience, in a way that will complement existing research strengths at the ICN. Candidate fields include, but are not limited to, developmental, social, clinical and computational cognitive neuroscience, and approaches with relevance for mental health (a strategic priority for the Faculty of Brain Sciences).

It is expected that the successful applicant will bring a broad perspective to the overarching question of how we can understand human behaviour and cognition in terms of mechanisms within the brain, and how this understanding can be applied to the psychological, social, clinical and  scientific challenges facing us. S/he will provide direction for junior researchers addressing these questions in a range of populations, from neurotypical children and/or adults, to people with developmental disorders, acquired neurological problems, acquired sensory problems or mental health issues, all of whom offer different insights to this field
