2 postdoc at Ruhr University (Germany) on cognitive neuroscience and fMRI

2 Postdoc positions available in ERC Consolidator Project “Neural mechanisms, functional roles and
pathophysiological relevance of human grid cell‐like representations”

We are looking for outstanding candidates to join the team of Prof. Nikolai Axmacher at Ruhr University Bochum (Germany). We use cutting‐edge cognitive neuroscience methods – fMRI at 3T and 7T, EEG, simultaneous EEG/fMRI, intracranial EEG and human single‐unit recordings – to investigate the neural mechanisms of learning, memory and spatial navigation. Our long‐term vision is to identify
the neural traces of memories for specific events, their transformation during learning and memory
consolidation, and their impairment in neurodegenerative and psychiatric diseases.
More information on our group can be found here:

We are searching for an enthusiastic researcher with a Ph.D. in Psychology, Cognitive Neuroscience or related disciplines and publications using fMRI (ideally at 7T) or intracranial EEG. The successful candidate will have extensive experience in cognitive neuroscience research and excellent analytical and programming skills. We offer a stimulating and friendly research environment in a leading cognitive neuroscience institution with ample opportunities for interdisciplinary exchange.

The Ruhr University Bochum is one of the leading research universities. The university draws its strengths from both the diversity and the proximity of scientific and engineering disciplines on a single,
coherent campus. This highly dynamic setting enables students and researchers to work across traditional boundaries of academic subjects and faculties.

Ruhr University Bochum (RUB) is a leading research University in Germany. The positions are funded via the ERC, begin on May 1st in 2020, and will be limited to 3‐5 years. Candidates of all genders and nationalities are encouraged to apply. The salary will be according to German legislation (39,83 h/w ‐ TV‐L 13). Travel expenses for interviews cannot be refunded.
