JOB DESCRIPTION
**************************************************************
The project „Cognitive and Neural Dynamics of Memory Across the Lifespan 
(CONMEM)” at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Center for 
Lifespan Psychology (Director: Prof. Dr. Ulman Lindenberger), is seeking 
applications for a

Predoctoral Research Fellow


The doctoral fellowship will last for 2 (+1) years. The position is 
available from May 1, 2014 or earlier.

Job Description
The CONMEM project (PIs: Dr. Yee Lee Shing & Dr. Markus Werkle-Bergner) 
investigates lifespan changes in the interplay between associative and 
strategic components of memory functioning on neural and cognitive 
levels, with a focus on working and episodic memory (see Sander, et al., 
Neurosci. Biobehav. Rev., 2012; Shing, et al., Neurosci. Biobehav. Rev., 
2010). Future research will advance a multi-modal imaging approach (EEG 
source imaging in combination with structural and functional MRI) to 
uncover lifespan differences in rhythmic neural activity related to 
perception, attention, and memory (e.g., Werkle-Bergner et al., 
Neurosci. Biobehav. Rev., 2006). The successful predoctoral fellow will 
plan and conduct empirical studies in this domain, analyze the 
behavioral, EEG, and MRI data, and prepare scientific manuscripts for 
publication.
For further information, please contact:
Dr. Markus Werkle-Bergner (werkle at mpib-berlin.mpg.de)

Requirements
A successful applicant needs to hold a diploma/master degree in 
psychology, cognitive neuroscience, computer science, or related fields. 
Applicants should have experience with conducting experimental research, 
knowledge in neuroimaging methods (preferably EEG), and a solid 
background in at least one programming language (preferably Matlab or 
R). In addition, the ability to work independently as well as a high 
proficiency of the English language is required.

The Max Planck Society is interested in increasing the number of women 
on its scientific staff. We strongly encourage applications from women 
and members of minority groups. In addition, the Max Planck Society is 
committed to employing more handicapped individuals and encourages them 
to apply.

To apply, please send (via email only) a statement of research 
interests, a CV, a copy of relevant certificates, (p)reprints of 
publications, and a list of two references to Dr. Markus Werkle-Bergner, 
MPI for Human Development, Lentzeallee 94, 14195 Berlin 
(werkle at mpib-berlin.mpg.de) by March 31th, 2014.
