Job offer: PostDoc in Cognitive Neuroscience

The Institute of Medical Psychology at the University of Frankfurt/Germany
invites applications for a PostDoc position in the areas of cognitive
neuroscience and neuroimaging. Employment duration will initially be limited
to 2 years but can be extended*.

The work focuses on investigating multisensory (audio-visual) integration
employing magnetoencephalography (MEG) and functional magnetic resonance
imaging (fMRI) in both healthy subjects and neuropsychiatric patient groups
(AD, schizophrenia, autism). The successful candidate will plan and conduct
MEG, fMRI and behavioral experiments, perform data analyses, and publish the
results.

The Institute of Medical Psychology provides access to state of the art
research facilities of the Frankfurt Brain Imaging Center including two
3-Tesla research scanners, a 275-channel MEG system, and a 128-channel EEG
system. We offer excellent supervision by experienced researchers and
possibilities for participation in training courses and international
scientific conferences. Last but not least, we provide a positive and highly
productive working atmosphere!

Candidates should have a background and hold a PhD in neuroscience,
psychology, biology, or a related field. The candidate should enjoy
experimental neuroscience, interdisciplinary collaboration and should be
motivated to acquire new skills and knowledge. Furthermore, the candidate
should be fluent in both English and German. Experience with fMRI or
EEG/MEG, and a good knowledge of statistics and programming skills are
highly desirable.

Applications of women are specifically invited. In case of similar
qualifications, competence, and specific achievements, women will be
considered on preferential terms within the framework of the legal
possibilities. Disabled candidates with equivalent qualifications will be
given preference.
