Goldsmiths, University of London is a world-leading centre of educational excellence where ground-breaking research meets innovative teaching and thinking. We're looking for inspiring and talented people to help build on our global reputation while also growing personally in a true learning organisation.

The Department of Psychology at Goldsmiths, University of London is a thriving centre of excellence in research and teaching. We have 45 academic staff and a focus on intellectually rigorous thinking and research. The department is rated in the UK top 10 for research intensity (REF 2014), with 72% of its research judged as internationally excellent or world-leading. The QS World University placed the department 18th in the UK, and just outside the top 100 world-wide.

We are recruiting a Postdoctoral Research Assistant to work with Dr Orgs (Psychology) and Dr Jamie A Ward (Computing) on a 5-year research project on the “Neurocognition of Liveness” funded by the European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator grant awarded to Dr Orgs. The role will have a strong focus on collecting and analysing multiple signals from mobile EEG and wearable sensors (hyperscanning) in a live performance context and in the lab. The role will involve close collaboration with performing artists working on the project. 

Candidates should have a doctorate in computing, cognitive neuroscience or a related discipline, ideally with a strong background in signal processing and advanced data analysis (i.e. machine learning). They should also be able to demonstrate experience publishing in peer-reviewed computing, psychology or neuroscience journals.
