Cognitive neuroscientist / Psychopharmacologist position available

Cognitive neuroscientist / Psychopharmacologist

Cambridge Cognition is the developer of CANTAB cognitive testing systems which are extensively used in academic research institutions and the pharmaceutical industry. Our world class science is supported by more than 650 publications and continuing development working alongside leaders in the field of cognitive neuroscience.

CANTAB is used by the major pharmaceutical companies in the development of novel drugs to treat cognitive disorders such as dementia, ADHD, and schizophrenia. Due to the rapid expansion of our clinical trials business we are looking to recruit additional scientists to provide expert consultation on psychopharmacology and neuropsychology to our clients within the pharmaceutical industry.

We are looking for high calibre, self motivated scientists with experience in cognitive assessment and a good understanding of psychopharmacology.  The role will require extensive international travel, frequent public speaking, and an ability to consult at a peer-to-peer level with senior scientists in industry and academia. Candidates should have a PhD or equivalent experience in psychopharmacology, cognitive neuroscience, neuropsychology or a related field, and a good track record of publication, relative to their level of experience.

In addition to providing scientific guidance to internal and external project teams, you will also be encouraged to analyse existing CANTAB data and to seek opportunities to collaborate with academic and industry scientists, publishing papers and presenting this research at international conferences. It is possible to dedicate up to 20% of your time to pursue independent research under an academic affiliation.

You will need drive, adaptability, excellent communication skills and be results oriented to enjoy working in our fast-paced environment.  This permanent position will have a global remit, but will be based initially in our Cambridge UK office. We offer excellent remuneration packages with a starting salary of around £35-50k, plus pension and healthcare benefits for post-doc level candidates; however we are also happy to consider applications from individuals who already have considerable experience in the field.
