3 four-year funded PhD positions are available for an international project funded by FNRS, FWO and SNSF. The PhD projects will explore the nature of serial order coding in working memory, using behavioral, neuroimaging (fMRI) and neurostimulation (TMS) approaches.
The PhD candidate will either work at the University of Liège in Belgium (PI: Steve Majerus), at Gent University in Belgium (PI: Wim Fias) or at the University of Geneva in Switzerland (PI: Evie Vergauwe), with extensive possibilities for between-site mobility and shared PhD supervision.
More specifically, the PhD student in the lab of S. Majerus will study serial order coding processes in WM mainly through behavioral and neuroimaging experiments. The PhD student in the lab of W. Fias will work on the same research question but with a focus on neuroimaging and neurostimulation study approaches. The PhD student in the lab of E. Vergauwe will mainly focus on behavioral experiments. For the labs in Liège and Genève, a basic level of French is needed, as well the willingness to reach the desired level in a few months after starting the position (to interact with students, participants, and administration).
For more information, please contact Steve Majerus (email@example.com), Evie Vergauwe (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Wim Fias (Wim.Fias@UGent.be).
Interested candidates should submit their application (CV + motivation letter + preferred university site + names of two reference persons) to the following address: email@example.com
