1-year post-doc position available at the Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience, University of Udine (02/2017)

Topic: Domain specificity of cognitive control for language and action selection in bilinguals.
We seek someone who is interested in developing a collaborative project on the overlap between the cognitive processes and neural mechanisms that allow individuals to switch between two languages or between two different types of action representations, namely kinematic processing or contextual information.  The project involves behavioral and brain stimulation (transcranial magnetic stimulation) testing of individuals with different degrees of bilingual proficiency. The applicant will join the Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory at the University of Udine and Scientific Institute E. Medea, Udine, Italy. The lab facilities comprise neuropsychological tests, single- and paired-pulse and repetitive TMS and tDCS equipment, systems for the recording of EMG and other electrophysiological measures, neuronavigation system for TMS target localization and high-sensitivity infrared eye tracking system. Applicants should be able to work independently as well as to co-operate with other members of the research team.
Prior experience with studying language processing in healthy and/or patients with brain injuries and with TMS/tDCS is very much appreciated. Candidates must hold a PhD in areas related to cognitive neuroscience, social and cultural neuroscience, or cognitive neuropsychology. A sound knowledge of experimental design and statistical methods is expected. Programming experience is very desirable.
The appointment, which will be available from September 2017, will be offered for a period of one year. Salary is 19.367,00 Euro gross per year (income tax exempt, about 17% contribution for pension and insurance). Deadline: 02th March 2017.
Contact: Initial scientific enquiries and further details concerning the position may be directed to Andrea Marini (andrea.marini@uniud.it) or Cosimo Urgesi (cosimo.urgesi@uniud.it).
The notice of competition and application forms are available at http://web.uniud.it/ateneo/normativa/albo_ufficiale/70-2017

Ph.D. position in Neuroscience (12/2016)

The laboratory of Pr. Nathalie Ginovart at the Department of Psychiatry of the University of Geneva is seeking candidates for a PhD position. Our research focuses on the brain mechanisms leading to drug addiction and compulsive behaviours. We are interested in understanding how innate behavioural traits related to impulsivity, novelty seeking and risky-decision making contribute to vulnerability to drug abuse. We are furthermore interested in investigating the neural circuit and molecular basis that control these behaviours. Our research is interdisciplinary and integrates behavioral testing, in vivo neuroimaging, and optogenetics in rodent models of addiction.

We are looking for a highly motivated Ph.D. student with a Master degree in Neurosciences, Medicine, Biology or related field. Good communication skills and a high commitment and curiosity about neuroscientific questions are essentials. The PhD position is offered for an initial 3 years. The successful candidate will join the Lemanic Neuroscience Doctoral School program, which offer a pluri-disciplinary education in all fields of neuroscience and is organized by the Universities of Lausanne and Geneva and the EPFL (http://www.lemanic-neuroscience.ch/phd/).

The starting date is 01.04.2017 but may be adjusted by mutual agreement.

Applications, including a complete CV and a letter of motivation with a brief statement of any research experience related to the field or a relevant field of study should be sent electronically to nathalie.ginovart@unige.ch.

Clinical Scientist for Image Processing, Machine Learning and Statistics

The Radiology Department of the University Hospital Lausanne (CHUV) and the Siemens Healthcare Advanced Clinical Imaging Technology Group Lausanne are looking for a scientist leading the clinical research and development activities within the group.  Our mission is to develop diagnostic decision support tools in the field (but not restrained to) of magnetic resonance imaging.  The position of the clinical research lead opens the exciting opportunity to work in a multi-disciplinary environment towards this goal in close contact with the medical end users. It encompasses method development, implementation, study design, statistical analysis and validation of new techniques – all of this set in a world-wide collaboration network. It requires out-of-the box thinking and an excellent team spirit, including the planning of student projects and their supervision.
