Applications are invited for a full-time Early Stage Researcher/PhD student position in the Computational Neuroscience Group (CNS), https://www.upf.edu/web/cns, led by Gustavo Deco, at the Center for Brain and Cognition, https://www.upf.edu/web/cbc, Pompeu Fabra University (Barcelona). The position is part of European School of Network Neuroscience (euSNN) project, https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/860563. euSNN will integrate leading European groups in network neuroscience and deliver training on knowledge and skills that enable students to pursue a successful career in this emerging field.

euSNN will combine and train all approaches relevant for investigation of brain networks, including (f)MRI, M/EEG, in-vivo recordings, analysis, modelling, network modulation with optogenetics or non-invasive neurostimulation and studies on network changes in neurological disorders. euSNN is funded by the European Union's Horizon2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska Curie grant agreement No 860563.

 "Candidates are applying to the ESR 11 project: “Enhancement of structural and effective connectivity information by functional data and whole-brain” The primary research focus is network modeling. The training is in: neuroscience, neurocomputational modeling, programming in MATLAB. Secondments are foreseen for: neuroimaging systems, technology transfer. 

Candidates with a background in neuroscience, biology, computer science, psychology, are encouraged to apply."

Benefits

Starting date for the ESR: 1st March 2020 (ideally). Duration of the research employment: 36 months.

Salary: The successful candidates will receive a 36 month, full-time employment contract as per Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) regulations for early stage researchers. The monthly salary will be confirmed upon offer, paid in the currency of the host country, and with a correction factor applied to the host country. The approximate monthly salary before employer and statutory deductions is: e.g. €3,072 (Germany), €3,741 (UK) … plus an additional mobility allowance of €600/month. Researchers may also qualify for a family allowance of €500/month depending on family situation at the time of recruitment. Please visit the EU MSCA website for further information.

Eligibility criteria

Eligibility

• Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs): All researchers recruited in euSN must be ESRs and undertake transnational mobility (see below). For all recruitments, the eligibility of the researcher will be determined at the time they start working at the project (March 2020). Note: ESRs are defined as researchers who at the time when they start working for euSNN are in the first 4 years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and have not been awarded a doctoral degree.

• Nationality: The ESR can be of any nationality.

• Transnational mobility: The ESR is required to undertake transnational mobility (i.e. move from one country to another) when taking up their appointment. Nationality is therefore not a criterion. Rather the location of the researcher's residence or main activity during the 3 years prior to their recruitment is determining. The researcher must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the host organisation for euSNN (Spain) for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the start date (March 2020). Short stays, e.g. holidays, are not taken into account. Note: the mobility rule applies to the (first) beneficiary where the researcher is recruited, and not to beneficiaries to which the researcher is sent or seconded. It is also only determined at one point in time: at the time when they start working for euSNN (1st March 2020).

Examples:

• Danish nationals can be eligible for recruitment at a beneficiary located in Denmark if they have resided or carried out their main activity outside of Denmark for more than 24 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the starting date (March 2020).

• Indian nationals can be eligible for recruitment at a beneficiary located in the UK if they have resided or carried out their main activity outside of the UK for more than 24 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the starting date (March 2020). Refugees: Researchers with refugee status, as defined by the Geneva Convention, benefit from a less restrictive mobility rule: the refugee procedure (i.e. before refugee status is conferred) will not be counted as a 'period of residence/activity in the country of the beneficiary. This period will only be counted as of the day that they are recognised as refugees. This is because refugees, by definition, are likely to have made unplanned changes of country, moving abroad rapidly without being able to arrange a research position in advance. They may have had to suspend their education or professional activities while obtaining permission to stay in the country. Therefore their mobility is not required to be as recent.

 

Eligibility criteria

The ESR 11 project: “Enhancement of structural and effective connectivity information by functional data and whole-brain” The primary research focus is network modeling. Training is in: neuroscience, neurocomputational modeling, programming in MATLAB. Secondments are foreseen for: neuroimaging systems, technology transfer. 

 

Candidates with a background in neuroscience, biology, computer science, psychology, are encouraged to apply.
