We are seeking a postdoctoral research fellow in neuroscience to work
with Professor Chris Frith and Professor Daniel Wolpert on a project
studying 'interactions between agents'. This work aims to elucidate the
physiological and computational mechanisms by which we use observed

their goals and intentions. A variety of techniques will be used
including behavioural studies, EEG and TMS. The candidate should have a
PhD or equivalent research experience in relevant fields and experience
with programming in Matlab and/or C++ would be advantageous.

The post is available with a starting date of 1 January 2003, or nearest
convenient date for one year in the first instance, with the possibility
of renewal for a second year. Starting salary is up to £26,255 pa
inclusive, depending on experience.

Further particulars of the position are on

Informal enquiries to Professor Frith ( ) or
Professor Wolpert ( ).

Applications (CV and names of three referees and a short statement of
research interests) should be returned to
