the research group functional imaging in movement disorders at the Brain Imaging Center NeuroImage Nord (Hamburg-Kiel-Luebeck) in inviting applications for a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship.
The project encompasses multiple functional imaging studies using multimodal functional MRI and EEG methods to explore the role of dopamine in reward-based decision making and the neural mechanism underlying behavioral disorders (e.g., pathological gambling, compulsive shopping, hypersexuality) in Parkinson’s disease. The project will be conducted in close collaboration with Professor Guenther Deuschl (President of the Movement Disorders Society).
Work will be performed as part of a multidisciplinary team of neuroscientists (computer scientists, physicists, psychologists, neurologists) with profound experience in functional imaging of patients with movement disorders. The department hosts a high volume outpatient clinic with of patients with movement disorders as well as a functional imaging infrastructure including 3T MRI and high-resolution MR-compatible EEG with ample dedicated research time.
Research and training will be in close cooperation with the Department of Systems Neuroscience, Hamburg (head: Christian Buechel).
Potential applicants are encouraged to contact me directly before submitting an application.
