postdoc in University of Maryland on developmental electrophysiology


Child Development Lab

University of Maryland

The Child Development Laboratory at the University of Maryland, College Park, ( is searching for a postdoctoral fellow to work on ongoing research related to temperament and the development of psychopathology. The position is to begin Spring or Summer of 2020. This position is for up to two years, with the possibility of an extension depending on grant funding.

The postdoc will work on existing and new studies investigating behavioral and electrophysiological correlates of cognitive control in relation to temperament among young children, including the contribution of individual-level factors such as attention and executive functions to the continuity or discontinuity in temperament over time.  The lab draws on multiple methods of inquiry including behavioral responses, questionnaires, and electrophysiology. The successful candidate will primarily be responsible for collecting and analyzing EEG and ERP data from high-density EGI systems, and writing scientific papers and presentations. Other duties will include working with research assistants and graduate and undergraduate students.

Position qualifications include a Ph.D. in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, or a related field; experience with EGI high-density systems for ERP and EEG acquisition and analysis; strong experimental and statistical skills; ability to work independently and in a team environment on multiple tasks and projects and to share one’s expertise with and train others. Experience with software programs (MATLAB, EEGLAB or other relevant programs), programming tasks (E-prime, Presentation), and statistical analysis (SPSS, R) are highly desired. Excellent scientific writing skills are also desired.

Please address questions or send a letter of research interests, a CV, and contact information for three references to Nathan Fox ( and Jamie Listokin ( Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled.

Postdoc in USZ (Switzerland) in clinical neuroscience

The Neurosurgery Department at USZ is collaborating with the Department of Neuropediatrics at University Children’s Hospital Zurich to investigate biomarkers to monitor therapy in children with epilepsy. We are currently looking for a

Postdoc in clinical neuroscience

We aim to develop biomarkers that can quickly and reliably monitor the effects of therapy in scalp EEG recordings of children with epilepsy. In particular, High-Frequency Oscillations (HFO) have been recently proposed to monitor epilepsy therapy.

You will be responsible for the computational and theoretical aspects of the project, which aims to develop the optimal algorithms for identifying these biomarkers. While a large body of data is already available, you will also participate in data acquisition from scalp EEG in children with epilepsy. You will spend time both at the Department of Neuropediatrics, University Children’s Hospital, and at the Department of Neurosurgery, University Hospital Zurich.

We offer advanced, interdisciplinary Postdoc training and participation in cutting-edge clinical neuroscience research projects. The highly competitive salary follows Swiss National Science Foundation guidelines. The successful candidate will benefit from the ZNZ postdoctoral program.

You have a PhD degree in Neuroscience, Psychology, Physics or related fields; knowledge in programming, time series analysis and machine learning; good written and spoken English; strong team-working abilities and excellent communication skills. Basic knowledge in neuroscience is required. For communicating with patients and technicians during EEG recordings, some German would be beneficial.

We look forward to receiving your email application including a letter of motivation, CV, diplomas, and contact details of 2 referees. We accept applications submitted through our online application portal

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:‐uni‐

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.
