Open position - High resolution fMRI of bistable perception
Our lab at the *Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam* <http://vu.nl/> has an
opening to be filled by either a PhD student (4 years) or junior PostDoc
(2-3 years), financed by an NWO-CAS grant
*Outline of research project*
In this project, we will study the interplay between top-down and bottom-up
processing in perceptual bistability using functional imaging of cortical
laminae at 7T. This project will answer cognitive neuroscience questions
from a systems neuroscience perspective. The project involves mathematical
modelling of behaviour, detailed psychophysics and eye tracking, as well as
the development of state-of-the-art analysis techniques for submillimeter
resolution functional imaging. Therefore, the successful applicant will
have a background in computation, be a fluent programmer and preferably
have experience with high-resolution functional imaging.
The project is a collaboration with the Zhang lab at the Chinese Academy of
Science, Beijing and the He lab at the University of Minnesota, and will
involve regular travel between these labs.
*Information & Application*
Feel free to contact Tomas Knapen <tknapen at gmail.com> for informal
inquiries. More information on bistable perception can be found in our
soon-to-appear review of the topic on the Annual Reviews of Psychology
lab website can be found at tknapen.github.io, and we are part of the cognitive
psychology group <http://vupsy.nl/> in the department of Behavioural and
Movement Sciences at the VU.
A formal application should contain a CV, two-page statement of interest
and two names of persons that can provide letters of recommendation, and be
sent to Barbara Goudriaan
<http://127.0.0.1:firstname.lastname@example.org>, with reference
number 00034515 in the subject line of the application email. We will
entertain applications continuously from now.
*Further particulars *
The salary will be in accordance with university regulations for academic
personnel. As an indication, this is a minimum of €2191 gross per month for
a PhD position, and €2717 for a PostDoc position, depending on experience.
The appointment will be initially for 1 year. After satisfactory evaluation
of the initial appointment, it will be extended. You can find information
