Please submit an application letter defining your research interests, a CV, transcripts, and the names of three persons who can provide references. Starting date: to be agreed with the candidate.
Contract type: Temporary,
The mission of the Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging is to conduct cutting-edge fundamental research in cognitive neuroscience. Much of the rapid progress in this field is being driven by the development of complex neuroimaging techniques for measuring activity in the human working brain – an area in which the centre plays a leading role. The research themes cover central cognitive functions, such as perception, action, control, decision-making, attention, memory, language, learning and plasticity. The centre also aims to establish how the different brain areas coordinate their activity with very high temporal precision to enable human and animal cognition. The internationally renowned centre currently hosts more than 100 PhD students and post-docs from more than 20 countries, offering a stimulating and multidisciplinary research environment. The centre is equipped with four MRI scanners (7T, 3T, 3T, 1.5T), a 275-channel MEG system, an EEG-TMS laboratory, several (MR-compatible) EEG systems, and high-performance computational facilities. English is the lingua franca at the centre. The successful candidate will work within the Visual Computation group.
