Please contact Prof. Della-Maggiore (vdellamaggiore at fmed.uba.ar) if you are interested in the following postdoctoral position in the lively city of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Cordially, Joaquin

The Physiology of Action Lab (www.physiologyofactionlab.info) is looking for a
candidate to fill a postdoctoral position in the Department of Physiology of
the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The Labortory focuses on Human
Behavioral Neuroscience, particularly in the area of motor control. We use
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, EEG and
psychophysics to study the neural mechanisms at the basis of different aspects
of motor control. These include motor resonance and action understanding
during action observation, online motor control and motor learning. Plastic
changes induced by learning and stroke are also main interests of the lab.

We are looking for a Ph.D. with a background in Neuroscience and, preferably,
with experience in one ore more of the techniques used in the lab, and data
analysis. Candidates with knowledge of Matlab would have priority. The postdoc
is funded by a fellowship from the National Agency for the Promotion of
Science and Technology (Argentina). Interested candidates could contact Dr.
Valeria Della Maggiore at vdellamaggiore at fmed.uba.ar with a CV, a letter of
interest and one or two references (email).

Many thanks
