Postdoctoral position at the Institute of Psychology of the University of Leipzig, Germany

EEG lab of Prof Dr Matthias M. Mueller

The Institute of Psychology at the University of Leipzig is seeking to appoint a full-time Research Associate to work on a DFG-funded project investigating the neural basis of visual object representation awarded to Prof Matthias M. Mϋller (University of Leipzig) in collaboration with Dr Jasna Martinovic (University of Aberdeen). The employment will be initially awarded for three years with the possibility of extension, with the salary in the postdoctoral range that is typical for positions of that level in Germany. The actual salary will be commensurate with the applicant's qualifications and previous work experience.

The appointee should be able to conduct independent research into visual object representation using EEG and behavioural methods. The University of Leipzig has its own 128-channel EEG laboratory and a fine record in investigating brain responses related to visual attention and object representation. The lab focuses on the study of temporal dynamics of integrative brain activity which are explored with a range of EEG responses such as the event-related potentials, steady-state evoked potentials and event-related high-frequency oscillatory activity.

Candidates should have a background in Psychology, Biology or Neuroscience and hold a PhD or be close to completion of a PhD. Previous neuroimaging experience is preferred - in particular EEG or MEG. Familiarity with the use of Matlab for data analysis and experimental design would be advantageous, as would be previous experience in vision science. Furthermore, excellent writing and presentation skills in English would be required. If the candidate would show interest in doing a habilitation at the Institute, a limited amount of teaching would also be made available.

Applications with a letter of interest, CV, publication list and details of two referees should be sent to Prof M.M.Mϋller at m.mueller at rz.uni-leipzig.de<mailto:m.mueller at rz.uni-leipzig.de>. Informal enquiries can be made to either Prof M.M.Mueller or to Dr Jasna Martinovic (email: jasnam at liv.ac.uk<mailto:jasnam at liv.ac.uk>).

The deadline for applications is 5th of June 2010.
