Post-doc in Neural control of primate grasp
Salary: £29,301 – £38,183
Closing Date: 12 July 2017
Based in the Institute of Neuroscience, Newcastle University, you will be responsible for the day-to-day running of this project, which seeks to define the relative contributions of cortical and sub-cortical centres to different types of grasp. You will assist in behavioural training of animals and in implant surgeries, and will then gather electrophysiological recordings of neural activity during task performance. You will carry out analysis of these recordings, and then prepare publication quality figures and the first draft of manuscripts reporting the findings.
Prior experience of primate neuroscience, including behavioural training and assessment, would be an advantage but is not required.
A strong academic background to PhD level is essential, and prior knowledge of motor systems neuroscience, as well as good computational and quantitative skills would be an advantage. Excellent team skills are required to liaise with the many staff members with roles in this project, and a strong commitment to animal welfare and 3Rs.
Tenable for 3 years.
