MEG Principal Investigator, Center for Mind-Brain Sciences (CIMeC), Trento, Italy
The Center for Mind-Brain Sciences (CIMeC) at the University of Trento, Italy, invites expressions of interest from highly motivated scholars for a principal investigator position at the assistant (tenure-track) / associate (tenured) professor level in the magnetoencephalography (MEG) laboratory at the Center for Mind-Brain Sciences (CIMeC): http://web.unitn.it/en/cimec <http://web.unitn.it/en/cimec>
One of the duties will be to coordinate and facilitate MEG research at CIMeC, acting as faculty coordinator of the MEG lab. Therefore a demonstration of strong organisational and collaborative skills is an asset.
Interested scholars must have an excellent research record, especially using electrophysiological techniques (M/EEG).
The successful candidate would be expected to contribute to the Center’s overall goal of delivering teaching at MSc and PhD level, and developing cutting-edge research in the area of Cognitive Neuroscience.
The CIMeC's purpose is to foster cutting-edge research on the neural underpinnings of cognition and to support the dissemination of these findings internationally and within the local community. As an interdisciplinary research and teaching center, the center draws on faculty from several departments, including Psychology and Cognitive Science, Humanities and Philosophy, Physics, Mathematics, and Information Engineering and Computer Science. Its faculty originates from Italy, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, USA, Canada, Argentina, Israel and beyond. Researchers study brain organization via the analysis of its functional, structural and physiological characteristics, in both normal and pathological conditions. Top-of-the-line instrumentation includes research-dedicated MRI, MEG, EEG, NIRS, TMS and eye tracking solutions, as well as systems for studying kinematics. In addition, the affiliated Center for Neurocognitive Rehabilitation (CERiN) is specialized in the study of clinical cases.
In the last 5 years CIMeC faculty have won many competitive national and international grants, including 1 European Research Council (ERC) advanced grant, 1 ERC consolidator grant, 6 ERC starting grants, other European Framework grants and highly competitive grants awarded by the local province. The center has recently been ranked the leading cognitive neuroscience research unit in Italy.
The University of Trento is committed to providing equal opportunities regardless of gender and race.
Expressions of interest, in the form of a brief motivation letter and CV, can be communicated to the designated search committee composed of:
Marius Peelen (Marius.Peelen at unitn.it <mailto:Marius.Peelen at unitn.it>) and Scott Fairhall (Scott.Fairhall at unitn.it <mailto:Scott.Fairhall at unitn.it>), preferably before November 15th, 2015.
