  • Cambridge University: Postdocs in Computational SensorimotorControl


    We are currently seeking two highly motivated Research Associates
    (postdoctoral fellows) 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 humans. Candidates
    should have 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.

    The appointment will be for two years initially starting July 1st, 2006 or
    as soon as possible thereafter. Salary is in the range £20,044 to £30,002
    p.a. Further details of the posts and an application form (PD18) are
    available on Informal enquiries should be addressed by
    email to Professor Wolpert ( ).

    Applicants are asked to submit (a) a cover letter describing their research
    experiences, interests, and goals, (b) a curriculum vitae, (c) a completed
    form PD18 (section I and III only) with the names and contact information of
    three individuals who can serve as references. These should be sent to Mrs.
    J. Milne (preferably by email ), Department of
    Engineering, Trumpington Street, Cambridge, CB2 1PZ, UK to arrive prior to
    April 14th, 2006.
