One PhD and one Postdoctoral research positions are available at the
Department of Psychology (University of Balearic Islands, Spain) to join an
ongoing project on the Cognitive neuroscience of executive control aimed to
assess functional and effective connectivity (e.g., Dynamic Causal
Modeling) in M/EEG data sets from healthy controls and brain injured
patients. The project aims to develop state-of-the-art neuropsychological
tools for a more valid and cost-effective evaluation of dysexecutive
symptoms in elderly adults and patients with frontal lobe lesions (cf.,
Barceló & Knight, Cereb. Cortex, 2007; Nyhus & Barceló, Brain & Cognition,

Successful pre/postdoctoral candidates will hold a MSc/PhD in Psychology,
Biology, Cognitive Neuroscience, Physics, or related fields, and will play
a key role in designing, conducting, analyzing and reporting M/EEG studies,
with a focus on event-related potentials, oscillatory neural activity and
synchrony. Candidates will be fluent in English (knowledge of Spanish is
not required), and will prove good interpersonal and communication skills,
including writing to a high standard. Both positions are funded by the
Spanish Government (MINECO’s grant PSI2013-44760-R), as well as other local
research agencies.

Requirements for the PhD student position: 1) EU citizenship; 2) a Master
degree and excellent academic marks; 3) Programming skills (eg., Matlab
will be a plus); and 4) Demonstrated ability and high motivation to conduct
high-quality research publishable in quality international peer-reviewed

Requirements for the Postdoc position: 1) Strong background publishing EEG
and/or MEG studies; 2) Advanced programming skills (eg., Matlab, C,
Python); 3) Excellent command of EEG/MEG data analysis software (EEGLAB,
SPM8,  Brainstorm, etc); and 4) demonstrate creative and independent work.

Applicants must submit an updated CV in pdf format, a letter of motivation,
and the names and emails of two referees to the grant holder: Francisco
Barceló (f.barcelo at uib.es). The PhD studentship is for 3 years, and the
postdoc position is for one year, with the possibility of renewal. Starting
