Dear Colleagues,

We have an open post-doc position for which we are still searching the ideal candidate – a person with a strong background in memory research and experience with advanced statistical analysis (machine-learning techniques like SVM, RSA…).

In collaboration with Nikolai Axmacher (Ruhr Universität Bochum), we plan a project on age-differences in memory reactivation that will be conducted at the Center for Lifespan Research of the Max Planck Institut for Human Development in Berlin in the context of the MINERVA research group headed by Dr. Myriam Sander (https://www.mpib-berlin.mpg.de/en/research/lifespan-psychology/projects/cognitive-and-neuronal-dynamics-of-memory)

Research of the MINERVA research group (PI: Dr. Myriam Sander) focuses on age-differences in memory representations. We aim to track memory representations across their life-cycles in terms of specific distributed patterns of neural activity. We investigate whether aging changes the quality of the representational patterns and thereby affects memory performance. We want to understand how aging affects the distinctiveness and similarity of memory representations during memory formation, replay, and retrieval. Research of the MINERVA group uses mainly electroencephalography (EEG) with a focus on oscillatory measures to uncover lifespan differences in mechanisms underlying memory performance (see e.g. Sander, et al., Neurosci. Biobehav. Rev., 2012). We also have access to a 3T scanner, TMS and eye tracker. Our research group is located at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development (MPIB) in Berlin with an international working atmosphere.

The official deadline for applications has passed already, but we decided to wait for the ideal candidate for this project – so if you know her or him, please let her/him know and encourage her/him to apply! Thanks for spreading the word!

With best regards from Berlin,
Myriam Sander
