3-year postdoc at UoB, decoding mental states based on fMRI/EEG patterns
Hi SPM users

We would like to bring this exciting postdoctoral position to the attention of potential applicants.

Mindreading mindreading: Using multivariate pattern analysis to decode the neural basis of mental state ascription. The full time postdoctoral research fellow will work on this ESRC-funded project in the School of Psychology at the University of Birmingham, with Professor Ian Apperly and Dr Maria Wimber. The project will use advanced neuroimaging methods to test whether “social brain areas” that are active when we think about the minds of others actually encode information about what other people are thinking, or whether they control attention to information encoded elsewhere. Please address informal enquiries jointly to Ian Apperly and Maria Wimber.

PhD Position in Nutrition Neuroscience Hamburg
We are still seeking outstanding applicants whose research interests lie at the intersection of metabolism, psychology and neuroscience and who are interested in studying brain mechanisms underlying homeostatic and hedonic aspects of ingestive behavior. Particular interests of our group are the neural underpinnings of pleasure and motivation systems during food-related decision making, emotion regulation and self-control, and the role of hormones (e.g. central insulin) in such decisions. A special focus is placed on the modifiability of these systems (e.g. by dietary intervention) and age-related changes. Preferred methodology is fMRI and DTI, in particular applying innovative techniques such as representational similarity analysis (RSA), dynamic causal modeling (DCM) and probabilistic tractography. Experience with these techniques is a definite plus, programming skills (e.g. Matlab) are mandatory. Strong interests in the field of neuroimaging and aging research are valuable.

The Department of Systems Neuroscience (head: Prof. Christian Büchel) provides an excellent multi-disciplinary and highly interactive neuroimaging environment with its own physics, psychology and clinical neuroscience groups as well as a research dedicated 3T MR scanner (PRISMA), EEG- and eye-tracking laboratory. The institute hosts an international graduate school that offers a comprehensive program covering all areas of neuroscience and provides PhD students with an excellent research environment.

Candidates should submit a CV and brief statement of research interest by e-mail to Dr. Stefanie Brassen (sbrassen@uke.de). For more information please visit our website goo.gl/PKCVBg.

The Department of Neurology at Thomas Jefferson University/Jefferson Medical College has an opening for a Two-Year Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Neuroimaging focusing on both clinical brain mapping and primary cognitive neuroscience investigations. The emphasis in our neuroimaging program is on cognitive and behavioral network organization and plasticity in neurologic disorders such as epilepsy. The lab focuses on the use of advanced network neuroscience measures to understand seizure networks and cognitive reorganization in epilepsy, and has had recent publications in Brian, Neurology, and Epilepsia, with some also prompting complimentary peer reviews. The lab is part of the Jefferson Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, an internationally-known epilepsy surgery program. Presurgical brain mapping studies are undertaken (MRI volumetrics, task-fMRI, resting state functional connectivity, diffusion imaging, neuropsychological assessment, electrophysiology/ electrocortical stimulation) as well as post-surgical neuroimaging studies investigating clinical, cognitive, and behavioral outcomes. The pre-surgical brain mapping studies are conducted on a regular basis, utilized in image-guided surgery, and then made available for research. Studies in brain recovery and the cognitive reorganization of language and memory functions are emphasized, utilizing rich multi-modal datasets for the investigation of both cognitive and pathologic (e.g., seizure) networks. Thomas Jefferson University provides a high-level interdisciplinary research environment with grand rounds, seminars, case conferences, and opportunities to collaborate with faculty across departments such as neurosurgery and radiology.

GIGA Doctoral School.
Do you have a Master degree in Biology, Medicine, Natural sciences, Engineering, Mathematics or Psychology? Do you want to do a PhD? Are you passionate about biomedical research?
In this case you might consider applying for a PhD position at GIGA Doctoral School.

A PhD scholarship is available for students with a background in physics, neuroscience, engineering to join the School of Health & Rehabilitation Sciences and the Queensland Brain Institute at the University of Queensland. . The successful candidates will be enrolled in a higher degree (PhD) by research at the University of Queensland and carry out a research project focused on memory in traumatic brain injury. Prospective memory, or memory for intentions, is a common problem for people with severe traumatic brain injury. Compensatory strategy training combined with a metacognitive approach to rehabilitation may assist in reducing failures of prospective memory in everyday life. This project aims to evaluate whether a 6-week prospective memory rehabilitation programme is associated with functional and structural changes in the brain using a mulit-modality imaging approach. It will involve studying a prospective memory task suitable for use within a MRI scanner, testing the task with non-injured controls, and evaluating pre-post intervention effects using functional MRI.
Applicants will need to enrol full time into the phD program. A background in human MRI, image processing and programming will be highly desirable.
