The Cognitive Neuroscience Group at the Neurology department of the University of Lübeck offers a PhD position (65% E13 TV-L) starting immediately.

The candidate will be working on a project that develops and implements neuromodulation techniques (tDCS) in combination with fMRI and then translates these methods to social neuroscience paradigms.


We offer

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. Our researchers use diverse and complex methods to analyze brain-behavior relationships. At the CBBM, a 3T Skypra MRI research scanner, several EEG labs, fNIRS, TMS and tDCS are available. Thus, we offer an excellent environment for interdisciplinary research.

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” under co-supervision of Dr. Elinor Tzvi-Minker and Prof. Ulrike M. Krämer.
