[Comp-neuro] PhD position in computational modelling
neumann at cbs.mpg.de
Tue Jun 3 14:49:45 CEST 2014
The Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences Leipzig
and the Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 1052 "Obesity mechanisms" at
the Leipzig University Hospital are offering a PhD studentship in
computational modelling. Within the project, computational modelling is
used to investigate leaning and decision-making in humans. The project
is aimed at the multi-modal integration of available and newly acquired
behavioral, structural/functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), PET
and genetic data towards comprehensive computational and neurocognitive
models of cognitive control over behavior.
Work will be carried out at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive
and Brain Sciences Leipzig under the supervision of Dr Jane Neumann and
Dr Annette Horstmann. Both Leipzig's long tradition in conducting
neuroscientific research and the ultra-modern equipment at the Max
Planck Institute provide an environment that offers new perspectives in
neuroimaging research. Further, the position will be part of the CRCs
Integrated Research Training Group. This graduate program offers
interdisciplinary qualification in various research methods and
transferable skills, and provides support in career planning and in
establishing an own scientific network.
Applicants should hold a Master's degree (or equivalent) in one of the
following disciplines: computational or cognitive neuroscience, computer
science, maths, psychology, biology, cognitive science or related. Prior
experience in the fields of computational neuroscience and/or
neuroimaging are of great advantage. Sound knowledge of statistics and
excellent programming skills are essential. A good command of written
and spoken English is requested of all applicants.
Please send your application as a single pdf-file to neumann at cbs.mpg.de
referring to 'Modelling SFB 1052'. Complete applications include cover
letter, CV, letter(s) of recommendation, and copies of university
degrees and additional certificates.
Informal enquiries should be made to Dr Jane Neumann (+49 (0) 341 99 40
26 21). For meeting Dr. Neumann and Dr. Horstmann at *OHBM 2014*, please
send an email to neumann at cbs.mpg.de or horstmann at cbs.mpg.de including
days and times when you are available during the conference.
The salary is based on the German E 13 TV-L salary scale. In order to
increase the proportion of female staff members, applications from
female scientists are particularly encouraged. Disabled applicants are
preferred if qualification is equal.
Deadline for application: until position is filled
