At Aarhus University, a position as MEG group leader is vacant.
The position is initially limited to three years, with good opportunities for a permanent position for the right candidate.
The position is affiliated with MINDLab, a cross faculty research initiative at Aarhus University carrying out research within neuroscience and cognition, using a variety of imaging and recording techniques such as functional MRI (BOLD, perfusion, diffusion), magnetic resonance spectroscopy, magneto- and electroencephalography, and transcranial magnetic stimulation. The position will be associated academically with the Center of Functionally Integrative Neuroscience (CFIN), Department of Clinical Medicine.
The successful candidate should have a strong background within MEG research and MEG methodology, and be established as an independent researcher, preferably corresponding to the assistant or associate professor level. The position will involve independent research, and leading our new MEG facility in collaboration with an on-site engineer and technician to ensure optimal use of our Elekta Neuromag Triux MEG system, installed in Summer 2011. The applicant is thus expected to have a firm understanding of relevant paradigms for neurocognitive research, and to offer affiliated research groups guidance in designing optimal experimental paradigms. We offer state-of-the-art research facilities that are primarily devoted (80%) to basic and clinical research, and close collaboration with a group of dedicated researchers and group leaders. The position includes some teaching duties, and the successful candidate is expected to act as PhD supervisor on relevant projects.
More information about the position can be obtained from Prof. Leif Østergaard, Center of Functionally Integrative Neuroscience, ph. +45 8949 4091. http://www.cfin.au.dk/.
