I would like to bring your attention to the position below.
Alt the best,
*Senior Researcher for 'Neuronal Oscillations and Networks' (1,0 fte)
*Donders Institute, Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging*
*Vacancy number: 30.01.12*
*Closing date: 15 April 2012*
The Neuronal Oscillation group at the Donders Institute for Brain,
Cognition and Behaviour has funding available for a senior researcher
position. The position has a strong research component, but also
includes additional management and teaching responsibilities. The
management tasks involve active participation in structuring the
research group, including supervision of MSc and PhD students (who will
receive senior authorship where applicable). Further, you will
contribute to grant writing. The research responsibilities focus on
investigating the role of oscillatory neuronal activity involved in
shaping the functional architecture of the working brain. This will be
done in the context of advanced cognitive paradigms on attention,
perception and memory. There will be a strong focus on the role of
phase, network interactions and subcortical structures. You will have
the following state-of-the-art equipment to your disposal: MEG, (f)MRI,
EEG combined with TMS, and EEG combined with fMRI. A further aim is to
link structural (e.g. DTI) and functional measurements. You will also
participate in conceptually developing the framework for understanding
the functional role of brain oscillations.
The Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour consists of the
Centre for Cognition, the Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging and the
Centre for Neuroscience.
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 neuro-imaging 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 internationally renowned centre currently hosts more
than 100 PhD students and postdoctoral researchers from more than 20
countries, offering a stimulating and multidisciplinary research
environment. The centre is equipped with three MRI scanners (7T, 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. You will work
within the Neuronal Oscillations group.
*What we expect from you*
As a candidate for the position, you should have a PhD degree and
several years of experience as postdoctoral researcher in a field
related to cognitive neuroscience. Selection criteria will consider the
record of published research, familiarity with neuroimaging techniques
(fMRI, EEG, MEG, and/or TMS) and supervision experience.
Proficiency in oral and written English is a prerequisite. You are
expected to work in a team, sharing technical know-how and ideas.
*What we have to offer*
We offer you:
- employment: 1,0 fte;
- in addition to the salary: an 8% holiday allowance and an 8.3%
- the gross salary will be between EUR3,195 and EUR4,970 (scale 12),
depending on experience;
- salary scale 11 will apply during the first year;
- duration of the contract: 6 years maximum.
Are you interested in our excellentemployment conditions
