Dear list members,

We are pleased to offer a position for a PhD student for the area of 
"Cognitive, Neural and Clinical Correlates of Oculomotor Function" at 
the German Centre for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and the 
University of Bonn, Germany.

The main research question of the PhD project is to identify the 
cognitive and neural correlates of different types of eye movements in 
the Rhineland Study cohort. To do so, neuropsychological and magnetic 
resonance imaging data will be drawn upon. Additionally, the clinical 
relevance of oculomotor measures will be investigated by analyzing 
further health-related data from this cohort. The scientific work will 
include the supervision of the eye-tracker data collection within the 
Rhineland Study, data analysis and preparation of manuscripts for 
publication in international journals.

We are looking for a highly talented, motivated, enthusiastic and 
ambitious researcher. Successful candidates hold a degree in 
epidemiology, psychology, medicine or other relevant discipline. 
Demonstrable interest in quantitative research, strong analytical 
skills, ability for independent and critical thinking, and excellent 
communication and writing skills in the English language are a prerequisite.

Successful candidates will be supervised jointly by Prof. Monique M.B. 
Breteler (DZNE) and Prof. Ulrich Ettinger (University of Bonn). Primary 
affiliation will be with the DZNE. Support and mentoring will be 
available at every step along the way. The PhD position will be 
integrated into the Bonn International Graduate School Clinical and 
Population Science (www.bigsclinpopscience.de/) with regular seminars as 
well as supportive mentoring and other research infrastructure. Training 
in general scientific methods as well as more specialized methods 
employed by the research unit will be provided. Active participation in 
local, national and international conferences is expected. Successful 
candidates will be awarded a PhD or MD/PhD depending on prior 

For further details, please see attached flyer.

Best wishes
Ulrich Ettinger
