Applications are invited for an experienced and enthusiastic neuroimager to work on a research programme investigating the effect of normal ageing on language and cognition.

The research focuses on neurocognitive models of healthy ageing, with an emphasis on issues relating to reorganisation and plasticity. The Centre has access to a research-dedicated 3T Siemens MR scanner, EEG and MEG facilities. We currently use a variety of imaging analysis methods such as fMRI analysis, voxel based structure-function correlational analyses, DTI analyses, multivariate analyses, and functional and anatomical connectivity analyses.
Applicants should have a PhD (or equivalent) and postdoctoral experience with excellent computer programming (especially MATLAB) and statistical skills, experience with fMRI and DTI analyses, an understanding of the basis of MR imaging, and an interest in language function. Given the nature of the research, candidates should be native English speakers or fully fluent in English.
