Dear All,
here's a PhD position I'd like to advertise:


A research position (PhD student, 50% TV-L 13) is available to study the impact of stroke on visual perception using behavioral methodology combined with fMRI methods. In particular, the research aims to depict the plastic changes in the visual network that are induced by ischemic stroke. Experiments performed with healthy human subjects and directed at studying the neuronal mechanisms underlying sensory decision making will be combined with studies of patients suffering from circumscribed lesions in striate and extrastriate cortex. 
The project will be conducted at the Departments of Neurology and Neuroradiology and is part of an IZKF funded collaborative project within the Medical faculty of RWTH Aachen University. The position is available starting August 1st, 2014 or later. Funding for this position can be provided for three years.
The successful candidate will work within an interdisciplinary team of young researchers at a well-known research institution (www.rwth-aachen.de). The candidate will design and conduct behavioral as well as functional imaging experiments, collect data, perform statistical data analysis (SPSS, Matlab, BrainVoyager and SPM), present the results at national and international meetings and publish research manuscripts.
Candidates (Ph.D. students, Ph.D., or M.D.) interested in visual perception, cognitive psychology, or clinical psychology are particularly encouraged to apply. Very good English communication and writing skills are expected. The position requires a strong interest in research questions and experimental skills combined with a high level of motivation, team-orientation as well as the ability to solve problems independently. Programming skills in Matlab are considered a plus. Qualified women are explicitly invited to apply and handicapped candidates with equal qualification will be given preference.
