    Senior Research Associate/Research Associate in Sensorimotor Control

    Wolpert-lab, Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge

    Salary: £36,715-46,510 pa or £27,319-35,646 pa

    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
