You have experience in relevant research areas, a track record of high-quality reviewed journal publications, ample experience in programming, and the ability to work in a team, sharing technical know-how and ideas. It would be desirable if you have experience in medical imaging (e.g. neuroimaging) technical research, computational modelling of the brain, machine learning and/or statistical methods.

Conditions of employment:

– starting date: preferably December 2013
– you will primarily be based at the Donders Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging
– salary will depend on experience; gross salary between €3,259 and €4,462;
