The University of Nottingham are looking to appoint a Senior Research Fellow position available within Nottingham Hearing Sciences, Division of Clinical Neuroscience, in the School of Medicine. Our group is part of a thriving research environment comprising basic and translational aspects of hearing research and precision imaging.

You will lead and deliver individual and collaborative research in the area of MRI-based tonotopic mapping and in-vivo auditory cortex parcellation, and generate new intellectual understanding through the application of state-of-the-art imaging technology, including ultra-high-field MRI. 

As the successful candidate, you must have a PhD or equivalent in Physics, Life Sciences, Computer Science, or another relevant scientific discipline, and be able to demonstrate extensive research experience involving advanced MRI/fMRI methods (e.g. as postdoctoral fellow or research associate). Experience in EEG/MEG and/or computational modelling, or a demonstrable interest or experience in hearing research and/or sensory impairment would be welcome, but not essential.

The post is a full-time (36.25 hours/week) fixed-term contract until 31st March 2020, with a possibility of extension until 31st March 2022. The post is open to applicants wishing to work on a part-time basis (to a minimum of 80% FTE).
