PhD & Postdoc positions – computational modeling and real-time fMRI neurofeedback of language, bilingualism and dyslexia

PhD and Postdoc positions are available at the Brain and Language Lab (www.brainandlanguagelab.org<http://www.brainandlanguagelab.org>) at the University of Geneva. The PhD position is for 3-4 years, and the postdoc position is for up to 4 years, and salary will be commensurate with experience.  Several projects will be done in collaborations with Maastricht University and with the University of Vienna.

Applicants should have a strong interest in human brain imaging, and in language function and dysfunction, and should have one of (or a combination of) the following profiles:

1. Candidates with a degree in Biomedical Engineering, Computational Neuroscience, or a related field, and with solid experience in computational modelling (i.e. encoding / decoding) of fMRI data, machine learning, statistics and programming. Projects will include extensions of our recent work on the neural encoding of acoustic information in speech sounds (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/31285622) to higher levels of language processing.

2. Candidates with a degree in Cognitive Neuroscience, Biomedical Engineering and/or Psychology, with solid experience in the acquisition and analysis of brain functional (and structural) imaging data. Projects will include real-time fMRI neurofeedback training studies, focusing on different levels/aspects of language learning.

Candidates for either position (depending on experience) will also have the opportunity to become involved in the analysis of data from a 7T myelin mapping (R1) study.

The positions are available immediately, and applications will be considered until the position is filled. Applicants should send me their CV, a statement of research interests, and the names and contact information for 2-3 references, at Narly.Golestani at unige.ch<mailto:Narly.Golestani at unige.ch>.
