You will carry out studies of human brain plasticity using learning, decision making and affective tasks in healthy volunteers and in clinical populations with stroke and affective disorders.

You will have or be close to the completion of a PhD in a relevant discipline (e.g. clinical neuroscience, psychiatry) along with an excellent academic track record including publications appropriate to career stage. With previous experience of designing, running, analysing, interpreting and writing up experiments involving non-invasive brain stimulation, you will have excellent skills in programming (Matlab, R), statistics, computational modelling and data processing.
