The Berlin NeuroImaging Center (BNIC) is a young and dynamic lab that 
implements interdisciplinary innovative research pertinent to various 
themes of neuroscience.

Research group: The position is directly related to the project 
"adaptive attention mechanisms in conflict processing". The position is 
available in the Vision and Motor Systems Research Group led by PD Dr. 
Stephan A. Brandt and is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft 
(DFG) in collaboration with the Institute of Psychology of the Humboldt 
University, the Freie University of Berlin and the Max Planck Institute 
for Human Development in the DFG funded Forschergruppe "conflicts as 
signals in cognitive systems".


Research topics: The goal of this project is to implement and 
investigate dynamic causal models (DCM) of brain areas involved in 
attentional mechanisms during conflict processing. The model will be 
developed in collaboration with the Institute for Theoretical Biology 
and Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin (Dr. Laurenz 
Wiskott & Prof. Dr. John-Dylan Haynes).

mathematics, computer science, electrical engineering or other related 
field. Strong mathematical and programming skills as well as the ability 
to communicate and work well in a team are considered mandatory. 
Candidates with the above named prerequisites who have familiar with 
dynamic causal modelling are also encouraged to apply.

Salary: Salary will be ½ or ¾ BAT IIa depending on qualifications,
