Tenure-Track Assistant/Associate Professor in Systems Neuroscience (0.8 -
1.0 FTE)

Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, Nijmegen, The
Netherlands

As a tenure-track Assistant/Associate Professor of Systems Neuroscience,
your research programme will centre on bridging experimental and
theoretical approaches to provide mechanistic insights in cognition and
behaviour. Ideally, you have a focus on human neuroimaging using MEG, and
potentially combine this with experimental approaches involving animal
models for cognition and behaviour.

You should be a well-trained academic with an internationally visible
profile as evidenced by publications in top-ranked scientific journals. You
should hold a PhD degree in systems neuroscience, neurobiology, cognitive
neuroscience or a related discipline. We expect you will contribute to the
training of undergraduate and graduate Science students and also students
enrolled in the Research Master’s programme of Cognitive Neuroscience of
the Donders Institute. Furthermore, you will supervise PhD candidates,
postdoctoral researchers and non-academic technical staff.

The position is intended for a junior faculty member to be appointed at the
Assistant Professor level, but if you are an experienced candidate with an
established research programme, external funding and significant teaching
experience, you may be considered for an appointment at the Associate
Professor level.

Work environment

The Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour is a world-class
interfaculty research centre housing more than 600 researchers devoted to
understanding the mechanistic underpinnings of the human mind. Research at
the Donders Institute is focused around four themes: 1. Language and
communication, 2. Perception, action and control, 3. Plasticity and memory,
and 4. Brain networks and neuronal communication. The Donders Institute was
assessed by an international evaluation committee as ‘excellent’ and
recognised as a ‘very stimulating environment, not only for top researchers
but also for young talent’. The Donders Institute fosters a collaborative,
multidisciplinary, supportive research environment with a diverse
international staff. English is the lingua franca at the Institute.

You will have your primary location at the Donders Centre for Cognitive
Neuroimaging and will be embedded at the Donders Centre for Neuroscience of
Radboud University’s Science Faculty. The Donders Institute has an MEG
system (CTF, 275 channels), three 3T MRI systems, plus a 7T whole body
system based in nearby Essen, EEG laboratories including a baby research
lab, and NIRS and TMS laboratories. Scanning access to these facilities
does not directly depend on the acquisition of third party funding.

What we expect from you

   - several years of postdoctoral research experience;
   - the capability and proven ability to acquire research grants;
   - an aptitude for undergraduate and graduate teaching as evidenced by a
   university teaching qualification, or the willingness to acquire this
   certificate;
   - the proven ability to bridge experimental and more theoretical
   approaches;
   - a line of research that fits in with that of the Donders Institute;
   - a collaborative, open attitude and strong communication and management
   skills;
   - the qualities to become a successful research group leader.

What we have to offer

   - employment: 0.8 - 1.0 FTE;
   - a maximum gross monthly salary of € 5,861 based on a 38-hour working
   week (salary scale 13);
   - in addition to the salary: an 8% holiday allowance and an 8.3%
   end-of-year bonus;
   - starting salary will depend on experience;
   - duration of the contract: 6 years;
   - your performance will be evaluated after 6 years. If the evaluation is
   positive, you will be given a permanent contract;
   - you will be classified as an Assistant Professor (UD) or Associate
   Professor (UHD) in the Dutch university job-ranking system (UFO);
   - you will be able to make use of our Dual Career Service where our Dual
   Career Officer will assist with family related support, such as child care,
   and help your partner prepare for the local labour market and with finding
   an occupation.
