Department of Experimental Psychology, Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, Oxford

Grade 7: £32,236 - £39,609 p.a.

We are seeking a highly motivated Postdoctoral Researcher to work with the Speech and Brain Research group, headed by Professor Watkins. This group has an established research record using brain imaging to study children and adults with disorders affecting speech and language.


The post is full-time, fixed-term until 31 October 2020.


The postholder will be responsible for the recruitment of children with language difficulties and data collection. The latter includes administering computerised or standardised behavioural tests and acquiring MRI scans in children aged 10 - 15 years. Testing takes place mainly on weekends during term-time and intensively during the school holidays, so flexible working is required.


The successful candidate will hold a doctorate (PhD/DPhil; awarded or thesis submitted) in a relevant subject. You should demonstrate a strong interest in children’s language or other cognitive development and have experience of running an MRI study. You should have excellent people skills (for working with children) and strong organisational skills, good attention to detail, and the ability to work well under pressure, both independently and as part of a team.


Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. You will be required to upload a supporting statement and CV as part of your online application.


The closing date for applications is 12.00 midday on 22 May 2019 with interviews at the end of May or first week of June 2019.
