A lab manager position is available to work at the Adaptive Brain Lab (http://www.abg.psychol.cam.ac.uk) at the Department of Psychology, University of Cambridge, UK.
The lab focuses on understanding the neural basis of human perception and adaptive behaviours using a combination of behavioral, computational and brain imaging techniques (fMRI, TMS, EEG). The team consists of an international and interdisciplinary mix of students and post-docs who use specialist equipment (display devices, eye trackers, brain imaging equipment).
The successful candidate will provide hardware (i.e. configuring computer equipment and experimental hardware) and software support (i.e. developing software for stimulus generation and data analysis) as well as some administrative support (e.g. ordering equipment, organizing databases and data storage, writing reports). The lab manager will be involved in all aspects of the lab life (i.e. conducting research projects in collaboration with lab members, organizing conferences and workshops, attending seminars and lab meetings).
A bachelor's (or higher) degree in computer science, engineering, math, physics, neuroscience, psychology, or other related field is required. Strong computer programming skills (especially MATLAB, C++, OpenGL) and organizational skills are required. Research experience in cognitive and/or computational neuroscience would be preferable, but not required.
