The Foundations of Cognition project is studying the emergence of cognition in infants, and how this is disrupted by brain injury. It has acquired functional MRI in a substantial cohort of 2-and 9-month-old infants (N=134), awake watching pictures and movies. The postholder will work with Professor Cusack and the team to use this rich dataset to characterise infant’s emerging cognition: critically evaluating the literature, developing a hypothesis, implementing the analysis, interpreting the results, and writing the manuscripts(s).

Full time, €50,540-€54,965 per annum, post ends June 2025.

Benefits include a pension contribution and PRSI social insurance.
