Job description:

Researchers at the Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine - Cognitive Neuroscience (INM-3) investigate the neural mechanisms underlying motor and cognitive (dys-)function in healthy subjects and patients suffering from neurological and psychiatric disorders. The successful candidate will be part of the Rehabilitation of Cognitive Disorders group headed by Professor Christian Grefkes. Our scientific mission is to further the understanding of lesion-induced disturbances in brain networks and the development of novel brain stimulation strategies to promote recovery of function. To achieve this, we combine neuroimaging (structural/functional MRI, electro-encephalography) and computational neuroscience with technical interventions (TMS) that allow us to enhance neural plasticity and neurorehabilitation. The research activities are embedded in the recently established Collaborative Research Centre (CRC, Sonderforschungsbereich 1451) on the neural mechanisms of motor control (www.crc1451.de) in collaboration with the University of Cologne.

  • Designing studies with (ultra-) highfield (f)MRI data or TMS-EEG
  • Acquisition and analysis of these data, using state-of-the-art techniques on brain connectivity as well as artificial intelligence
  • Interaction with a dynamic multidisciplinary team members and collaborators from Psychology, Medicine, and Computational Neuroscience as well as the University Hospital Cologne
  • Presentation and publication of the results at international conferences and in peer-reviewed journals

Your Profile:

  • Completed study (Master) in in Physics, Informatics, Bioengineering, Neuroscience, Psychology, Mathematics, or related disciplines including an excellent doctoral degree
