Pre-announcement: Postdoc and PhD position for collaborative 7T fMRI project with Spinoza Center Amsterdam

posted in: Positions, Projects | 0

Anticipating actual recruitment in the spring of 2021, we will have a postdoctoral scientist (2-3 years, 0.8-1.0 fte) and phd position available (3 years, 1.0 fte) on a collaborative 7T (f)MRI project with the Spinoza Center in Amsterdam to study the visual brain. In particular, we aim to unravel the functional anatomy of the cortical circuitry (whole brain and laminar) underlying vision and study the structure of the cortical circuitry sustaining perception. To do so, we will apply recent advanced analysis methods developed in our lab, such as micro probing, at 7T. Our ideal postdoc candidate is experienced in (f)MRI research and has a strong computational view on the brain, a track-record in publishing research (demonstrated through high-impact research papers), and experience in developing stimuli and analysis software (e.g. Psychtoolbox and Matlab-based). You need to be a team player and science advocate with an interest in both applied and fundamental visual neuroscience research. The profile for our ideal PhD student is comparable, albeit with a reduced emphasis on experience.
