Dear FieldTrip list,

I would like to announce an open PhD position with Prof. Andreas Engel  
at the Dept. of Neurophysiology and Pathophysiology, University  
Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf.

For details, see below.


The Department of Neurophysiology and Pathophysiology at the  
University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (Director: Prof. Dr.  
Andreas K. Engel) invites applications for a PhD student position. The  
position is available with immediate start. The appointment will be  
for 3 years.

The position is at the intersection of psychology, cognitive  
neuroscience and philosophy. More specifically, experiments  
investigating the sense of agency shall be carried out, using  
neuroscience techniques such as magnetoencephalography (MEG) and  
functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). The sense of agency  
refers to the monitoring of actions and the experience, or awareness,  
of such as self- or other-generated.

Applicants should have experience in analyzing human EEG or MEG and/  
or fMRI studies. Programming experience (Matlab, Presentation) is  
considered mandatory. Applicants will be responsible for the  
management and implementation of research paradigms, data acquisition  
and analysis. Knowledge in theories of action and perception,  
multisensory processing, awareness and a basic understanding of  
information processing in the human brain would be preferred.

The successful candidate will be member of the European collaborative  
project “Extending Sensorimotor Contingencies to Cognition – eSMCs”  
that has started in January 2011. The main objective of the project is  
to extend the Sensorimotor Contingency Theory as an action-based  
approach to perception and cognition, and to investigate its  
implications in studies of natural and artificial agents. More  
information on the project is to appear at http://eSMCs.eu.  
Information on the Dept. of Neurophysiology and Pathophysiology is  
available at http://www.uke.de/neurophysiologie and at http://www.40hz.de 

Please send your application (including a CV) to

Dr. Nicole David or Prof. Dr. Andreas K. Engel
