Thu May 7 10:29:39 CEST 2015



The new MINERVA research group headed by Dr. Myriam Sander at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Center for Lifespan Psychology (Director: Prof. Dr. Ulman Lindenberger), is seeking applications for a


The doctoral contract will last for 3 years. The position is available from October 1, 2015 or later.

Job Description: Future research of the new MINERVA research group (PI: Dr. Myriam Sander) will use a multi-modal imaging approach (EEG with a focus on oscillatory measures in combination with structural and functional MRI) to uncover lifespan differences in the interplay between sensory (visual and auditory) and cognitive abilities influencing memory performance. The MINERVA research group is part of the project „Cognitive and Neural Dynamics of Memory Across the Lifespan (CONMEM)” which investigates lifespan changes in the interplay between associative and strategic components of memory functioning on neural and cognitive levels, with a focus on working and episodic memory (see Sander, et al., Neurosci. Biobehav. Rev., 2012; Shing, et al., Neurosci. Biobehav. Rev., 2010). The successful predoctoral fellow will plan and conduct empirical studies in this domain, analyze the behavioral, EEG, and MRI data, and prepare scientific manuscripts for publication.

For further information, please contact: Dr. Myriam Sander (sander at mpib-berlin.mpg.de)

Requirements: A successful applicant needs to hold (or expect by summer 2015) a diploma/master degree in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, or related fields. Applicants should have experience with conducting experimental research, knowledge in neuroimaging methods (EEG and/or MRI), and a solid background in at least one programming language (preferably Matlab or R). In addition, the ability to work independently as well as a high proficiency of the English language is required. Experience with age-comparative studies is an advantage.

The Max Planck Society is interested in increasing the number of women on its scientific staff. We strongly encourage applications from women and members of minority groups. In addition, the Max Planck Society is committed to employing more handicapped individuals and encourages them to apply.

To apply, please send (as ONE FILE and via email only) a statement of research interests, a CV, a copy of relevant certificates, (p)reprints of publications, and a list of two references to Dr. Myriam Sander, MPI for Human Development, Lentzeallee 94, 14195 Berlin (sander at mpib-berlin.mpg.de) preferably by June 30th, 2015. Later applications will be considered until the position is filled.
