The successful candidate will participate in the activities of the newly established Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience (CCNS), and can apply for the international PhD program “Imaging the Mind“ as an associated student (second funding period expected to begin October 2015).
The CCNS promotes a rich research environment and provides access to the most advanced behavioral and neuroimaging techniques, including 3 Tesla MRI, compatible EEG, TMS/navigation, high-density, depth and conventional EEG, tDCS, fNIRS, eye tracking, somatic physiology systems, several well-equipped behavioral labs and an MEG which will be operational in 2016. The CCNS equipment is exclusively dedicated to research, which provides a unique opportunity for graduate students to have generous access to such equipment for learning these modern techniques and using them in their research.
We welcome applications from handicapped people. We particularly welcome applications from women. Given equal suitability, qualifications and professional achievement women will be given preference, unless particular circumstances pertaining to a male applicant predominate.
Applicants should submit relevant documents (a detailed curriculum vitae, a photo, a copy of their Master's certificate, names of two referees, a letter of motivation detailing the candidate's particular scientific experience, knowledge, competencies and interests).
