PhD Position Available

The NeuroImaging Centre Groningen of the School of Behavioral and Cognitive
Neurosciences in collaboration with the Department of Biological Psychiatry,
The Netherlands, has a position for a PhD-student available in the field of
functional neuroimaging and affective disorders.

We are looking for an excellent and highly motivated candidate with an
education in mathematics, physics, informatics, artificial intelligence,
or comparable background. Interest and/or previous experience in/with
neuroscience, fMRI methods, design and image analysis are a plus. Experience
with the LINUX operating system is a positive add on.

The successful candidate will participate in the research program
"Neuro-biology of anxiety and affective disorders" which aims to explore the
differences in brain functioning between psychiatric patients and healthy

The main focus of this project is twofold: <1> the (abnormal) interaction
of brain functions in terms of anatomical (DTI), functional and effective
connectivity as investigated by (functional) MRI and EEG, and <2> the molecular
basis of psychiatric disorders investigated mainly by PET. Within this focus
the candidate is strongly encouraged to develop and refine methodological
and mathematical (connectivity) models in order to increase our understanding
of normal and abnormal mental functioning.

The position is available for 4 years (from November 2005) and must result
in a dissertation. There is an evaluation after one year. Salary will be
approximately 1370,- Euro a month net.
