Vacancy: Postdoctoral Researcher position on cross-cultural social robots project at Glasgow

Postdoctoral Researcher position at University of Glasgow on cross-cultural comparisons on the neurocognitive profile of socialness attribution, perception and interaction with robots

The Social Brain in Action Lab (SoBA Lab), based at the University of Glasgow, invites applications for a fixed-term, full time post-doctoral researcher to work on the ERC Starting Grant 'Social Robots' with Prof Emily S. Cross. The successful applicant will use behavioural, neuroimaging (fMRI) and neurostimulation (TMS/tDCS) measures to explore and compare experience-dependent plasticity among healthy young adults in Europe and Japan across prolonged periods of human-robot interaction.

The postdoctoral researcher will be a key member of the Social Robots team and will work closely with other team members. A PhD or equivalent in a relevant field (e.g., Psychology, Neuroscience, Cognitive Science, or Computer Science), as well as outstanding written and spoken communication skills are essential. The successful applicant will be expected to commence between 1 January - 1 March 2019, and the post is available for an initial appointment period of 2 years.
