The Sensorimotor Control Laboratory, under the direction of Professor
Daniel Wolpert has openings for two highly motivated Postdoctoral
Research Fellows in the area of computational and experimental human
motor control. The Fellows will join a team investigating planning,
control and learning of skilled action.

One Research Fellow will work on modelling of the motor system using
optimal control and Bayesian approaches and should have a background in
a computational field (e.g. Computational Neuroscience, Engineering,
Physics, Maths). The other will work on psychophysical studies of
human motor control and should have a background in an experimental
field (e.g. Neuroscience, Psychology). Applicants should ideally have a
PhD, plus technical expertise and computational skills relevant to the
study of human movement. Further details of both posts and laboratory
facilities can be found on www.hera.ucl.ac.uk/vacancies. Informal
