SNF PhD fellowships in psychology and neuroscience of emotion Geneva - Switzerland (11/2019)

Two PhD candidate positions for four years are available in the Neuroscience of Emotion and Affective Dynamics (NEAD) lab at the University of Geneva in the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences and the Psychology department.
The applicants should have a master in Neuroscience or Psychology or equivalent and competencies in statistics and/or neuroimaging including fMRI or fNIRS or/and EEG. The project entitled “Influence of peripheral information on behavioural and spatio-temporal neural mechanisms of vocal emotion production and perception” implies that the applicant should have strong interest in the study of emotion and voice with an interest in affective sciences and interdisciplinary approach.
This project is associated with the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences (http://www.affective-sciences.org) and the Psychology Department with a full access to the 3T fMRI scanner, NIRS and EEG systems and virtual platform in the
Brain and Behaviour Laboratory (http://bbl.unige.ch/index.html) located in the Geneva Medical Center and in the Campus Biotech (https://www.campusbiotech.ch/).
Information enquiries and applications should be submitted to Didier.Grandjean@unige.ch and Leonardo.Ceravolo@unige via email only.
Didier Grandjean’s lab web site: http://www.unige.ch/fapse/neuroemo/
The deadline for submissions is 1st November, 2019. The contract can start at the earliest convenience of the chosen candidate, subject to obtaining a valid work permit.

SNF Postdoctoral fellowship in psychology and neuroscience of emotion Geneva - Switzerland (11/2019)

A postdoctoral position (100%) for three years is available in the Neuroscience of Emotion and Affective Dynamics (NEAD) lab at the University of Geneva in the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences and the Psychology department.
The applicant should have a PhD in Neuroscience or Psychology or equivalent and experience in neuroimaging, especially in EEG, fNIRS and/or fMRI, including functional and effective connectivity. The project entitled “Influence of peripheral information on behavioural and spatio-temporal neural mechanisms of vocal emotion production and perception” implies that the applicant should have strong interest in the study of emotion and voice as well as in affective sciences an interdisciplinary research context.

PhD position in multimodal imaging to understand neurodevelopmental vulnerability for developing schizophrenia (08/2019)

22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome is neuro-genetic disorder that represents the single highest molecular risk factor for developing schizophrenia. Indeed approximately 30% of individuals with 22q11DS with develop schizophrenia by adulthood. In our lab, since 2001, we perform longitudinal follow-up of children and adolescents with 22q11.2 leading to the single largest longitudinal cohort worldwide. Our research protocol includes gold-standard neuroimaging acquisitions, including structural MRI, task-based fMRI resting-state fMRI and diffusion-weighted MRI. Moreover we perform extensive neuro-cognitive and clinical evaluations. Our aim is to understand how atypical trajectories of brain maturation contribute vulnerability to schizophrenia, in order to both characterize neurodevelopmental mechanism involved and to detect early biomarkers of vulnerability to the disorder.
