A new European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator grant starts at the
University of Torino, Italy, for 5 years (~ 2 million euros). The grant
“LIGHTUP – Turning the cortically blind brain to see” is awarded to prof.
Marco Tamietto (www.marcotamietto.com).

The project investigates the neural correlates of visual awareness and of
non-conscious vision in patients with *blindsight* and in non-human
primates (macaques) with V1 destruction. To this aim, a broad range of
methods will be used, including 3T and 7T (f)MRI, neurophysiological
recordings and brain stimulation (TMS).

The project is embedded in an outstanding international and
interdisciplinary context, including the University of Oxford (UK), Tilburg
University (NL) and NIH (USA), with granted access to their excellent

We offer a full-time PhD Student post for 4 years. Applications of highly
motivated candidates with interests in systems neuroscience, vision
sciences and neuroimaging are welcomed. The successful applicant will be
appointed by the University of Torino, but he/she will be expected to spend
a significant amount of time at the NIH in Bethesda (USA). In fact, the PhD
student will be co-supervised by prof. M. Tamietto and prof. D. Leopold,
and the position is specifically focused on behavioural and fMRI studies in
non-human primates.
