Tue Nov 27 17:24:39 CET 2012

We are seeking a highly motivated PhD student for a 4-year project on /the
role of selective attention in reward-modulated cognitive control/. The
project will be supervised by Nico Boehler in collaboration with Wim
Notebaert (http://expsy.ugent.be/staff/cstaff.htm).

  Our department hosts ten research groups, creating a dynamic environment
including regular internal presentation series as well as frequent talks by
invited speakers etc. We have access to state-of-the-art equipment
including a 64/128-channel Biosemi EEG system and a research-dedicated
3-tesla Siemens MR scanner, as well as eye-tracking devices and TMS.

  Candidates are expected to have a Master's degree in psychology,
(cognitive) neuroscience, or a related discipline on the starting date. He
or she will mostly carry out behavioral and EEG experiments, but extensions
to fMRI (including MR-compatible EEG) and TMS are possible. Experience with
any of these techniques would be an asset.

  The starting date is flexible (but preferably early 2013). The project
will culminate after four years in a PhD thesis. Salary is according to
standard Belgian regulations (scholarship: ± ?22.000,? net/year). Although
the governing language at Ghent University is Dutch, knowledge of Dutch is
not a pre-requisite.

  Interested candidates should send a CV, motivation letter, and two (email)
addresses of potential referees to nico.boehler at ugent.be before February
1st 2013. Informal inquiries can also be sent via email.
