Postdoctoral studies in Cognitive Neuroscience (scholarship)
We are seeking a highly talented, innovative and enthusiastic researcher with a PhD awarded within the past three years in cognitive neuroscience or in a related discipline to work on projects involving the body representation, multisensory integration, peripersonal space, embodied cognition, social cognition, or self-awareness.
The research will be conducted at The Brain, Body and Self Laboratory at the Department of Neuroscience, Karolinska Institutet (www.ehrssonlab.se). Our laboratory has expertise in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and behavioral approaches (including virtual reality technology). We have access to two state-of-the-art 3-Tesla MRI scanners.
The ideal candidate will have expertise in experimental psychology (preferably psychophysics), imaging neuroscience (preferably fMRI), or brain stimulation methods (TMS). The candidate is expected to work within the general framework of the research program (www.ehrssonlab.se), but will be relatively free to formulate his or her own ideas and proposals for projects. It is important that the candidate can independently formulate original scientific questions and clever designs for experiments. Applicants should be able to demonstrate a consistently excellent academic record, including multiple publications in high quality international journals.
