4 post-doc positions in cognitive neuroscience of time perception (20 May 2016)
4 post-doc positions are available to work with Domenica Bueti on a European Research Council funded project (“How the Human Brain Masters Time – BiT”) at the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) of Trieste (Italy).
By using neurostimulation (TMS, tDCS), neuroimaging (fMRI at 7T, and EEG) techniques and the simultaneous combination of TMS and EEG, the project aims to understand the neural mechanisms and the cognitive architecture subserving human abilities to perceive, represent, and manipulate information about time.
The candidates must have a PhD (or equivalent) in neuroscience or a related field, should have expertise in either neurostimulation (TMS and/or tDCS) or neuroimaging techniques (fMRI and/or EGG), have competence in programming (Matlab) and interest in the research topic. The successful candidate is expected to work within the general framework of the project, but also to actively contribute with his/her own ideas.
The starting date for these positions is flexible. Initially for two years, the positions can be extended up to three years. Salary depends on experience and is based on SISSA regulations (~€22.000-30.000/annum, net).
To apply, please send to Domenica Bueti (firstname.lastname@example.org) in a single pdf file, a CV, the contact information of two referees, a brief statement describing your personal qualifications and future research interests.
Closing date for applications is the 31/07/2016

POST-DOCTORAL POSITION IN PERINATAL BRAIN RESEARCH USING EVENT-RELATED POTENTIALS AND THERAPIES (01/2016)
Center for Perinatal Research, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, Columbus, Ohio, USA
Applications are invited for a post-doctoral researcher to work with Dr. Nathalie Maitre and her group on the project “Early Childhood Constraint Therapy for Sensory/Motor Impairment in Cerebral Palsy”, funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Health.
Post-Doctoral position in the Brain and Language Lab (11/15)
Applications are invited for a Post-Doctoral position in the Brain and Language Lab (www.brainandlanguagelab.org) at the University of Geneva. The position is for 2 years (or more), and will be at the new Biotech Campus (http://www.campusbiotech.ch/en/).
Candidates should have a degree in Cognitive Neuroscience, Biomedical Engineering, Computational Neuroscience or a related field, and should have solid experience in brain imaging data analysis, computational modelling, pattern recognition, machine learning, statistics and programming. The projects will involve the use and development of computational morphometry and of computational modeling to study auditory cortex structure and function in healthy individuals, in experts and in individuals with dyslexia.
The salary is competitive, starting salary at ~ 69, 000 CHF/year (~ 81, 000 CHF/year as of August 2016) depending on experience.
The position is available immediately, and applications will be considered until the position is filled. Informal inquiries can be addressed to Narly Golestani (Narly.Golestani@unige.ch). Applications including a CV, a statement of research interests, and the names and full contact details of three referees should be sent to: Narly.Golestani@unige.ch.
