Vacancies within the Centre for Systems Neuroscience

Research Associate in Neuroscience


We are looking for a Research Associate in Neuroscience to join us in the Centre.


You will develop and carry out your own research whilst contributing as a team member to a wider research programme (‘Memory formation in the human medial temporal lobe’). The project will investigate concept representations in the human hippocampus, by studying concept cells (a.k.a. Jennifer Aniston neurons).

You will contribute to the recording and analysis of local field potentials and multiple single-neurons in epileptic patients (implanted with intracranial electrodes for clinical reasons) while the patients perform different cognitive tasks; you will also contribute to the analysis of the collected data for publication in international journals. Recordings will be performed in hospitals collaborating on the project.


Applications will close at midnight on 21 October 2019.
