We are seeking a highly motivated Senior Research Associate/Research
Associate (postdoctoral fellow) to join our group working on theoretical
and experimental approaches to human sensorimotor control. The project is
led by Professor Daniel Wolpert and involves investigating the processes
involved in motor learning, sensorimotor integration and control.

The successful applicants will be expected to conduct independent research
involving both computational and experimental studies in motor learning in
humans. Candidates should have finished or have submitted a Ph.D. in
Neuroscience, Psychology, or Physical and Engineering Sciences relevant to
sensorimotor control, with an academic record of scientific excellence,
independent research, and a strong interest in an interdisciplinary
approach to motor control. A strong mathematical, statistical, and/or
computational background and experience with computers and programming
(Matlab, C++, etc.) is expected. Applicants with a strong computational
background relevant to neuroscience who wish to learn experimental
approaches will also be considered. Appointment at the level of Senior
Research Associate will be dependant upon qualifications, skills and
experience to date. The appointment will be for one year initially (with
the possibility of extension) starting May 2010 or as soon as possible
