The Proaction Laboratory (
http://gaius.fpce.uc.pt/pessoais/jorgealmeida/proaction_home.html; Jorge
Almeida’s Lab) at the University of Coimbra (www.uc.pt), Portugal is
looking for a motivated and bright researcher for a project on memory
enhancement in the elderly through neuromodulation. This is an ongoing
project where we explore how neurostimulation can impact performance in
memory tasks in a healthy elderly population. The project involves the use
of fMRI, and tDCS, and is funded by the Portuguese Science Foundation and
Foundation BIAL.

The position is for 6 months, and starts in June/July. The salary is
competitive for the cost of living in Portugal (and particularly in
Coimbra) – the researcher will earn 980 euros per month, tax free, plus
social security (around the average salary in Portugal). Good understanding
of and experience with fMRI data analysis is required (Volumetric analysis,
functional connectivity, Defaul mode network analysis, cortical thickness,
General Linear Models. Any software would be ok, but preference is given to
BrainVoyager). Experience in using matlab is also a requirement. Good
English (oral and written) communicative skills are necessary.

The University of Coimbra is a 700 year old University and has been
selected as a UNESCO world Heritage site. Coimbra is one of the most lively
university cities in the world, and it is a beautiful city with easy access
to the beach and mountain.

The deadline for the application is May 10, but you should apply as soon as
you can, as we may fill in the position sooner than the deadline if there
are candidates with a superb fit with the requirements and project. The
interested candidates should email Jorge Almeida for questions and
applications. Please send an email with the subject “fMRI position
available on memory project” with your curriculum vitae, list of
publications, the names of three referees, and a short description of your
experience in the field and how you fulfill the requirements to:
