opportunities within the Centre with other research groups, both within

navigated TMS-EEG, behavioural and eye-tracking equipment, as well as local
access to MEG, fMRI and a range of neurological populations. This new
international lab will operate in tight collaboration with the Centre of
Functionally Integrative Neuroscience at Aarhus University (Denmark),
Psychology Department at Northumbria University Newcastle (UK), and other
international collaborators.

The HSE is a young, dynamic and fast-growing research-intensive university

- Fluent English (knowledge of Russian is not required)
- Demonstrated ability and high motivation to conduct high-quality research
publishable in quality international peer-reviewed journals

For PhD students:
- Master or similar degree in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, language
sciences or related fields
