Applicants should have a research-oriented background in cognitive neuroscience, experimental psychology, or computer science and should have basic programming skills (e.g., MATLAB). Experience with neuroimaging, non-invasive brain stimulation and data analysis is desirable.
Applications are invited for a PhD to begin in September 2016.
The successful applicant will be based in the University of Birmingham School of Psychology, and would be supervised by Dr Davinia Fernández-Espejo.
