Postdoctoral Position available in consciousness science

A two-year full-time post-doctoral position is available within the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science (SCCS) at the University of Sussex, starting in Spring/Summer 2011.

This research initiative is funded by the large-scale EU project ‘collective experience of empathic data systems’ (CEEDS). You will work with Dr. Anil Seth (SCCS co-director) and others in the group, on developing and testing a theoretical model of the neurocognitive mechanisms underpinning conscious presence.  Presence is a key dimension structuring conscious experience, but one that requires explanation. For example, in virtual reality, researchers try to engender conscious presence in simulated environment. Conversely, certain psychiatric disorders (e.g., depersonalization, derealisation) seem to selectively affect conscious presence.

For more information and for how to apply see  www.jobs.ac.uk/job/ACC296/ or follow the links on www.anilseth.com.  More information about the SCCS is at www.sussex.ac.uk/sackler/.

The closing date for applications is Feb 28, 2011.
