Dear colleagues,
I would like to bring your attention to the position below.
Alt the best,

Ole Jensen


*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.

*Work environment*
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% 
end-of-year bonus;
- 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
