Lifespan Neural Dynamics Research Group, Max Planck UCL Centre.

(doesn't have a working link, the Apply button is from ResearchGate.)



Two 2-year postdoctoral positions (with possibilities for extension) in cognitive neuroscience/neuroimaging/computational modeling are now available in the Lifespan Neural Dynamics Research Group (PI: Douglas D. Garrett) of the newly established Max Planck UCL Centre for Computational Psychiatry and Ageing Research (Co-Directors: Ray Dolan and Ulman Lindenberger). The group investigates neuroimaging-based brain signal variability and dynamics in relation to cognition, structural/functional connectivity, neuromodulation, and transcranial stimulation, with an emphasis on age-related differences. Multivariate statistical methods and computational models linking brain dynamics to behavior are of key importance to the group. Available equipment and facilities include EEG, MRI (two 3-Tesla scanners), TMS, tDCS/ACS/RNS, and a grid computing system.


Successful candidates will hold a doctoral degree in psychology, neuroscience, computer science, engineering, or a related field, and show a competitive publication record. A strong background in one or more of the following is preferred: fMRI, EEG; computational/mathematical/statistical modeling of behavior and/or neural function. Programming skills (e.g., Matlab/R/Python/shell) are required. We are committed to employing more handicapped individuals and especially encourage them to apply. We also seek to increase the number of women in scientific areas in which they are underrepresented, and therefore explicitly encourage applications from female candidates.

To apply, please send a cover letter expressing research interests and future goals, a complete CV, and contact information for at least two references via the "APPLY"button before March 01, 2015. Start dates are flexible.
