1 Post-doctoral and 1 PhD position in Cognitive Neuroscience, Charité Berlin
The Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin (http://psy-ccm.charite.de/en/) invites applications for a Post-doctoral and a PhD student position. A Starting Grant of the European Research Council (ERC) will fund both positions for initially 2 years with the possibility of extension.
The main objective of this ERC research program is to examine neural and neurochemical markers of multisensory integration and to test a new hypothesis that considers dynamic interplay of synchronized neural populations as a key to multisensory processes (Senkowski et al. 2008, Trends in Neurosciences). The studies within this program include healthy subjects and patients with schizophrenia, as a prototype of a mental disorder with deficits in multisensory integration. Multisensory processes will be examined in a series of experiments requiring both bottom-up and top-down processing (Talsma et al. 2010, Trends in Cognitive Sciences). This comprises a combination of human EEG data as a macroscopic measure of cortical processing and source modeling of synchronized oscillatory activity.
Applicants should have a background in psychology, medicine, biology, physics or neuroscience. Experience in human EEG/MEG studies or biosignal analysis (e.g., Matlab) is desirable (i.e. required for the Post-doctoral position). An interest in neurophysiologic studies in clinical populations is expected, as well as German language skills for interacting with patients.
Applicants are asked to submit their CV, a short motivation letter, 2 names of referees, and documentation of relevant qualification (e.g., copies of diplomas and/or transcripts of grades) until May 20, 2012, electronically to PD Dr. Daniel Senkowski (daniel.senkowski at charite.de<mailto:daniel.senkowski at charite.de>; www.danielsenkowski.com<http://www.danielsenkowski.com>), Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Charité, University Medicine Berlin, 10115 Berlin, Germany, Phone: +49-30-2311-2738, Fax: +49-30-2311-2209.
