Inviting applications for a Senior Cognition Scientist position

The GSK Clinical Unit in Cambridge (CUC) is currently recruiting a Senior Cognitive Neuroscientist with an advanced degree and research experience in Cognitive Neuroscience or Neuropsychology and technical expertise in at least two of the following techniques including neurophysiology/electroencephalography methods (EEG/MEG), neurocognitive tasks (i.e. CANTAB, Cogstate) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).

This role involves close collaboration with Platform Director for Neurosciences, Neuroscience Clinical Matrix and Project Teams, Centre for Excellence in Drug Discovery and Discovery Performance Unit (DPU) Leadership Teams, CUC Physicians, and Lead Matrix Scientist for appropriate expert input into cognitive and neuropsychological Experimental Medicine study protocols.

The role requires the ability to test patients and healthy volunteers with neuropsychological tasks and functional imaging methods, review/co-author protocols, write scientific papers for publication, to provide input into statistical/clinical reports, analysis plans and associated study documentation.  In addition the role requires the ability to collaborate with multiple departments within a large matrix environment to ensure key Experimental Medicine studies are conducted appropriately with the optimum utility of technical capacity. In addition, the role will provide a conduit for greater collaborations with external centers of academic and scientific excellence including the University of Cambridge. There will be broad interactions with key non-GSK development partners to ensure the utility of state-of-the-art comprehension and technical methods within Experimental Medicine studies.
