Postdoctoral Fellowship in multimodal developmental neuroimaging
Applications are invited for a 2-years postdoctoral fellowship in the human multimodal neuroimaging project "Linking the major system markers for typical and atypical brain development: a multimodal imaging and spectroscopy study" (http://www.zihp.uzh.ch/1610.php#45) funded by the Zürich Institute of Human Physiology.
This study will investigate the major physiological markers of brain development, using a combination of advanced magnetic resonance imaging (e.g., functional MRI) and MR-spectroscopy methods. The initial phase of the study will establish baseline neurotransmitter levels, cerebral blood flow (e.g., perfusion MRI) and EEG frequency and power at rest across a range of age groups. Examining the interactions between these markers and the changes they demonstrate with age and hormone levels will allow to better understanding the global and regional processes underlying brain maturation. The later phases will investigate changes in these physiological markers with (a) cognitive tasks and (b) attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The starting date of the position is January 2011.
The successful applicant will have a PhD research background in Cognitive Neuroscience, Neurophysiology, Psychology, Neuropsychology, or related fields. Fluency in English, good oral and written German, and the ability to work within a multidisciplinary team are essential. Applicants should be experienced at conducting fMRI and/or EEG studies and be familiar with analysis software, such as SPM/Matlab, BrainVoyager and/or FSL. Experience with stimulus presentation software (such as Presentation), UNIX, and programming languages a plus.
Salaries are in accordance with the Swiss National Research Foundation (starting at around 80'000 CHF p.a.).
APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS: To apply by e-mail (max. 5 MB), please send a curriculum vitae, a personal statement describing research interests, 3 letters of recommendations, and up to 5 article reprints/preprints to:
