*PostDoc position in Cognitive Developmental Neuroscience at Freie
Universität Berlin*

We seek for a highly qualified PostDoc (3 years, 100%, TV-L 13) to join us
in investigating the development of early visual perceptual processes and
learning mechanisms in the infant brain. The position will focus on the
application of state of the art analysis-methods from cognitive
neuroscience (e.g., neural oscillatory analyses, SSVEP, MVPA, connectivity
analyses) to infant EEG data, to understand the development of the visual
system in the first year of life. The scope of the project is within the
cognitive developmental neuroscience, a highly dynamic, multidisciplinary,
and rapidly growing field.

The position is part of a DFG-funded project led by Dr. Moritz Köster at
the Freie Universität Berlin, in collaboration with Prof. Stefanie Höhl
(Vienna University) and Dr. Radoslaw Martin Cichy (Freie Universität
Berlin). The post holder will be affiliated with the “Neural Dynamics of
Visual Cognition” group at the Freie Universität Berlin. The main
responsibilities will be performing cutting-edge EEG data analyses,
publishing articles in high-ranked peer-reviewed journals, the supervision
of data assessments, and the training and co-supervision of a PhD student
(based at Vienna University).

The preferred starting date is the 1st of March 2020 (but this date is

Interested candidates should send a CV, a brief motivation letter, and the
names and contact details of two academic references to
moritz.koester at fu-berlin.de. All applications will be considered until the
official closing date (soon announced on the job site of the University
<https://www.fu-berlin.de/universitaet/beruf-karriere/jobs>), but later
applications will be accepted until the position is filled.

Informal requests can be sent to moritz.koester at fu-berlin.de at any time.


   - PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience, Psychology, Biology, or a related
   discipline (completed or submitted)
   - Very good programming skills (preferentially Matlab) and experience
   with time series analyses (preferentially on EEG/MEG data)
   - Excellent command of written and spoken English


   - First-authored publications in cognitive (developmental) neuroscience
   - Experience with programming and conducting neuroscience studies
   - Theoretical knowledge and interest in cognitive neuroscience and/or
   developmental psychology
   - Experience in student supervision (Bachelor/ Master’s theses)
