*PhD/Postdoctoral Position at the Max Planck Institute for Biological
Cybernetics in Tübingen, Germany *

The Department of High-field Magnetic Resonance at the Max Plank Institute
for Biological Cybernetics in Tübingen is offering one PhD position and one
postdoctoral fellow position under the supervision of Dr. Xin Yu (Group
Leader at MPI for Biological Cybernetics). This position is open until

*Research Description*: Understand and learn to control the brain circuits
underlying critical brain states, such as coma or arousal.  Potential
assignments: a. build up the multi-modal platform to monitor the brain
states of rat coma models, e.g. implementing the MRI/EEG/calcium recording
methods for global brain state verification. b. target specific nuclei with
deep brain optogenetic stimulation methods, potentially involved in
developing real-time biofeedback controlling schemes.

Experience with signal processing and programming is highly desired*.
*The candidates
should bear a certain experience or strong interest on brain functional
imaging, e.g. task-based BOLD fMRI.

The Max Plank Institute for Biological Cybernetics is located in Tübingen,
Germany. The High-field Magnetic Resonance Department is equipped with the
3T, 9.4T human MR scanner and 14.1T animal Bruker MR Scanner.  The Max
Planck Society is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer, and
encourages applications from qualified women and minority candidates.

Please send your CV (in English) to Dr. Yu if interested.
