PhD Students / Doctoral Researchers in cognitive neuroscience


Apply before: April 30th, 2019
University of Munster, Germany
Job specification:
  • The chosen candidates will work in close collaboration on the project “‘Alternative facts’ – How the brain warrants stable and flexible predictions from faithful and modified memories of a person’s true past”. This project is part of the newly established DFG research unit 2812 “Constructing Scenarios of the Past: A New Framework in Episodic Memory” at the Ruhr University Bochum and the University of Münster. The research unit will study the cognitive and neuronal mechanisms underlying the constructed scenarios that make up episodic memory. It will employ and combine approaches from philosophy, psychology as well as experimental and computational neuroscience. The selected candidates’ projects will use fMRI to investigate the neuronal correlates and dynamics of recalling faithful and modified episodic memories. We seek to understand the conditions that render the memory of a truly experienced episode more or less susceptible to later modification.
