The Neurology department of the University of Lübeck offers a PhD position (65% E13 TV-L) starting on January 1st, 2017 or later.
The candidate will be working on a project using combined non-invasive brain stimulation (tDCS) and MR-imaging to study dynamics of neural connectivity underlying motor skill learning.
The department of Neurology is part of the Center for Brain, Behavior and Metabolism (CBBM), which offers an excellent and state-of the-art research environment. The research group "Cognitive Neuroscience" (headed by Prof. Ulrike Krämer) is working on different topics related to cognitive and affective control (anger and aggression, response inhibition, regulation of eating behavior) and motor control. In addition, our researchers use diverse and complex methods to analyze brain-behavior relationships. Thus, we offer an excellent environment for interdisciplinary research. In addition, the group has a number of national and international collaborations.
The successful candidate will hold an MSc/MA/Dipl. in Biomedical Engineering, Psychology or related fields (cognitive science, biology, medicine, neuroscience or other). Experience in acquisition and analysis of human neuroimaging data (fMRI, EEG, MEG or NIRS) and Programming skills in Matlab (or equivalent) is preferred. Interest and/or experience in the field of cognitive neuroscience are obligatory.
We are looking for a motivated, analytic and problem-solving oriented candidate who enjoys interdisciplinary challenges. The candidate will work in the "Cognitive Neuroscience Group" headed by Prof. Dr. Ulrike M. Krämer under the supervision of Dr. Elinor Tzvi-Minker.
Applicants with disabilities are preferred if qualification is equal. The University of Lübeck is an equal opportunity employer, aiming to increase the proportion of women in science. Applications by women are particularly welcome.
For questions about the details of the assignment please contact Dr. Elinor Tzvi-Minker (elinor.tzvi at neuro.uni-luebeck.de<mailto:elinor.tzvi at neuro.uni-luebeck.de>). Please send your application (Letter of motivation, CV, two recommendation letters, relevant certificates) as one single complete PDF file to the Email-address mentioned above.
Applications will be considered until the position has been filled.
