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
