PhD in MRI-Study on Digital Interventions in Aphasia

 

Apply before: June 2nd, 2018
Institute: KU Leuven (Belgium)
Job specification: The aim of this project is (1) to predict written and oral language recovery based on the profile directly after stroke. In addition, we aim (2) to examine training-induced changes in reading as well as in the underlying cognitive-linguistic and neuroanatomical system, taken into account their profile at theonset of training. Finally, we aim (3) to distinguish training-induced effects from spontaneous recover. This will lead to a better insight in training is more effective when the impaired neurocognitive mechanism is targeted (i.e. restoration) versus the preserved system (i.e.compensation).

Postdoctoral researcher psychology

 

Apply before: June 8th, 2018
Institute: Ghent University (Belgium)
Job specification: The successful applicant will work on a project that focuses on the origin and control of impulsive actions. Impulse control (or a lack of it) has been linked to health outcomes, school and job success, and personal finances. The idea that people have voluntary control over their impulses and urges also permeates our current socio-economic and legal systems. Therefore, establishing a good understanding of impulse-control mechanisms could be hugely beneficial for both individuals and society at large.

Yet many fundamental questions remain unanswered. In this project, we will use carefully designed behavioural paradigms, cognitive neuroscience techniques (TMS & EEG), physiological measures (e.g. facial EMG), and mathematical modelling of decision-making to specify the origin and control of impulsive actions.The ultimate goal is to replace the currently dominant ‘inhibitory control’ models of impulsive action with detailed multifaceted models that can explain impulsivity and control across time and space.

The successful applicant will be responsible for the development of experiments (in collaboration with the research team), collection and analysis of behavioural and neuroscience data, publication and dissemination of the results, and will be involved in the supervision of research assistants, MSc and PhD students.

Postdoctoral researcher Meditation and the Predictive Brain

Apply before: June 7th, 2018
Institute: University of Amsterdam
Job specification: Overturning the classical notion of perception as a largely bottom-up process, the idea that our brain is a prediction machine, continually trying to predict what is ‘out there’ based on past experience, is quickly growing in stature and influence. Yet, to what extent expectation formation occurs automatically is currently unknown. Perceptual inference can certainly occur subconsciously, but does this mean that we have little control over our own experience? The goal of this postdoc project is to enhance our understanding of the automaticity of predictive processing machinery. To this end, it will examine the effects of different styles of meditation on expectation formation in the brain in meditation experts using different neuroimaging methods (EEG/fMRI) and analysis techniques (uni- and multivariate (e.g., ERPs, MVPA), Bayesian modeling).

You will develop and execute experimental studies in the context of the research project, write a review paper, and report results at conferences and in international journals. You may also provide teaching assistance and co-supervise PhD students. The position offers excellent training opportunities in (advanced) EEG data analysis and (7T) MRI
