We invite applications for a Doctoral (PhD) and a Postdoctoral position at the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences (University of Geneva, Switzerland; www.affective-sciences.org/ ) and the Neuroscience of Emotions and Affective Dynamics Lab (Head: Prof. Didier Grandjean). We are seeking for highly motivated and talented research candidates to work on a project on the neural basis of processing human affective vocalizations. The positions are funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNFS).
For the Doctoral (PhD) position candidates should have a relevant degree in psychology, neuroscience or a related field. Furthermore, they should be familiar with fMRI and/or EEG and have a strong background in affective or auditory neuroscience. Programming skills (i.e. Matlab) are advantageous. The position is available for 3 years.
For the Postdoctoral position candidates should have a Ph.D. (or equivalent) in psychology, biology, neuroscience or a related field. Furthermore, they should be familiar with fMRI (on 3T and/or 7T scanners) and have a strong background in auditory neuroscience. Candidates should have experience in brain image analysis (SPM, FSL and/or FreeSurfer), pattern recognition, and statistics. Excellent programming skills (Matlab, UNIX, etc.) are highly desirable. The position is initially available for 2 years with a possible extension for one year.
The University of Geneva provides an excellent multidisciplinary and interactive neuroimaging environment with research dedicated brain imaging facilities (http://bbl.unige.ch/index.html) within the framework of the Geneva Neuroscience Center (http://neurocenter.unige.ch/).
The positions are available immediately and applications will be considered until the positions are filled. Candidates should submit a CV, names and full contact details of two referees and a statement of research interests by e-mail to Dr. Sascha Frühholz (sascha.fruehholz@xxxxxxxx).
