2 PhD positions are available immediately in the group of Prof. Claus
Hilgetag at Jacobs University Bremen, Germany to work on a project "When
attention meets perception: Non invasive neurostimulation technologies to
boost visual perception in intact subjects and cerebrally damaged patients
(BEYONDVIS)", involving transcranial magnetic stimulation as well as
modeling of functional perturbation of visual perception and attention. The
project is funded for 3 years by the German Ministry of Education and
Research as part of the European ERA-NET NEURON initiative, and will be
carried out in close cooperation with project partners in Grenoble and
Paris, France as well as Granada, Spain.

Position 1 will be more strongly focused on experimental aspects requiring a
background in biology, medicine, neuroscience or psychology, while the focus
of Position 2 will be on computational modeling and data analysis, requiring
solid programming skills (e.g., in Matlab/Mathematica/C++).  Position 2
might also suit students with a background in computer science, physics or
mathematics having a strong interest in neuroscience.

Interested students are encouraged to submit a CV, contact details of two
referees and a short statement of research motivation and interest
electronically to: c.hilgetag at jacobs-university.de. 
For full consideration, applications must arrive by 25 June 2010.  Please
feel free to contact C. Hilgetag for informal inquiries and additional
