[visionlist] Postdoc in cognitive neuroscience of object and scene perception, Donders Institute, The Netherlands

Mon Oct 29 10:18:48 -05 2018

A postdoctoral position is available in the group of Marius Peelen at the
Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour (Nijmegen, The
Netherlands). The Donders Institute offers excellent lab and neuroimaging
facilities, courses, and technical support.

The research group, funded by an ERC grant, uses fMRI and EEG/MEG to
investigate the neural basis of factors that contribute to efficient
naturalistic vision, such as object grouping, perceptual learning,
context-based predictions, and attentional set. We also study the
principles underlying the organisation of high-level visual cortex.

As a postdoctoral researcher you will be expected to take the lead in
developing and performing fMRI and (fMRI-guided) TMS experiments that
reveal the function and causal contribution of object- and scene-selective
cortices during naturalistic visual perception. Studying related topics,
within the scope of the lab's interests, may also be possible.

You should preferably hold a PhD in cognitive neuroscience, psychology, or
a related field, and have relevant experience in visual perception research
and a strong motivation to pursue a scientific career. Experience with fMRI
and/or TMS is highly desirable, as is experience with scientific
programming (e.g. MATLAB, Python). You will work in a highly collaborative
lab environment and you will be expected to participate actively in lab
events, discussions, and research collaborations.
