[visionlist] PhD position on learning and brain plasticity in motor rehabilitation(Tuebingen, Germany)

PhD position on learning and brain plasticity in motor rehabilitation

A PhD position is available in the Section Computational Sensomotorics
(http://www.compsens.uni-tuebingen.de) at the Hertie Institute for
Clinical Brain Research (http://www.hih-tuebingen.de/) and the
Tübingen Cluster of Excellence (Centre for Integrative Neuroscience
http://www.cin.uni-tuebingen.de/home.php).
This PhD training provides exciting opportunities for high-level
research training, international travel and exchange between labs of
international research leaders in top European Universities and
market-leading companies in the area of learning and brain plasticity.
The specific project will include experiments on motor learning and
rehabilitation in neurological patients. The experiments at the
Section Computational Sensomotorics will use novel VR and motion
capture technology. The analysis of the behavioural data involves
advanced computational methods.
In addition, associated neural plasticity phenomena will be studied
using state of the art imaging techniques in collaborations with the
FMRIB Centre at the University of Oxford (http://www.fmrib.ox.ac.uk/)

The European Community Seventh Framework Initial Training Network
“Adaptive Brain Computations” (ABC, PITN- GA- 2011- 290011) is a
multi-disciplinary research and training programme which aims to
integrate the study of learning and brain plasticity to promote
wellbeing and advance healthcare interventions. The network takes a
multidisciplinary approach, synthesising methods from brain imaging,
behavioural science, physiology, and computational modelling to
understand brain plasticity.
For more information on ABC, please check:
http://cnil.bham.ac.uk/ABC/index.html

Eligibility criteria:
1. You should have a background in subjects related to the research
including neuroscience, medicine, cognitive psychology, computer
science, engineering or physics.
2. You should be in the first 4 years of your research career and
should not yet have been awarded a PhD.
3. You must not have lived in Germany for >12 months during the past 3 years.
Ideal candidates should have the following qualifications:
• Masters degree in Biomedical Engineering, Psychology, Neurobiology,
Neuroscience, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Physics, or
related fields
• motivation to work with clinical populations
• experience in either in motor control or in functional imaging
techniques (fMRI)
• programming skills (Matlab, C/C++, …)
• English speaking and writing skills.

Applications:
Please send CV, personal statement of research background and
interests and the name of 3 referees.

[visionlist] TOP 10 FINALIST ILLUSIONS!


[visionlist] Research Fellowship(s) at Southern Cross University, Australia

Dear Colleague,

There are three research fellowships being offered at Southern Cross University (see http://www.scu.edu.au/jobs/index.php/12#acad). They are not specifically targeted at vision researchers, but one of the priority areas, health, might be relevant for one of them. I would be delighted to field informal enquiries about the position:

Southern Cross University Postdoctoral Research Fellowships aim to support excellence in full-time research undertaken across the University in areas of strategic research priority.

The University will be offering up to three new Fellowships during 2012.
Successful applicants are expected to be based full-time at the University for the three year duration of the Fellowship.

Applicants must have a high quality track record relative to opportunity in order to be short-listed and a PhD award dated no earlier than 1 March 2007 or commensurate with a period of significant career interruption (between 1 March 2007 to 1 March 2012). Note that the PhD award date is defined as the date on the testamur.

The deadline for applications is 23 May 2012.

I am planning to be at VSS; I can answer questions about the position there.

Cheers,
Robert.

[visionlist] Research Fellowship (pending funding) in EEG correlates of visual consciousness

Dear Colleague,

I would be most grateful if you could circulate to suitable candidates information about the following possible position. I am planning to be at VSS, so I can answer questions about the position there. I can also field e-mail enquiries.

Research Fellowship (pending funding) in EEG correlates of visual consciousness (0.8 position for 6 months) at the lovely, sub-tropical, Coffs Harbour, Australia.

Position Overview

Southern Cross University’s School of Health and Human Sciences is seeking to appoint a research fellow to support the School’s Professor of Psychology by undertaking research, writing research papers, and writing grant applications.

One of the research areas supported by the School of Health and Human Sciences is cognitive neuroscience. This research seeks to answer questions about the fundamental principles of brain functions mediating awareness, selfawareness, and awareness of others in healthy and in diseased and injured brains. A major strand of the Professor’s research within this area is into mechanisms of human visual consciousness. Research equipment includes a BrainProducts, 64-channel, EEG system and and EyeLink 1000 eye tracker.

The successful applicant will have a research background in using EEG to explore the time and place in the brain of fundamental perceptual processes, including those mediating visual consciousness. In the role the successful applicant will work closely with colleagues within the School and Faculty.

The successful applicant may be required to travel between University campuses in order to undertake duties.

Selection Criteria

The appointee must possess:

1. A doctoral degree in Psychology, Cognitive Science, Neuroscience, or relevant discipline.

Ideally, the appointee should possess the following qualifications, skills, abilities, and experience:

2. Demonstrated skills in conducting experiments using EEG measures.

3. Demonstrated skills in analysing the locations of sources from high-density EEG recordings.

4. Facility in writing MatLab code to run EEG experiments and to analyse their data.

5. Publications in relevant, high-impact, refereed journals, at least commensurate with the level of appointment.

6. Capacity to apply for internal and external research grants and other funds.

7. Demonstrated ability to work independently and collaboratively, exercising initiative and time management skills.

8. Willingness and ability to engage with the regional community and other external stakeholders and to represent SCU in building collaborations under direction.

9. Excellent communication skills, including a demonstrated ability to undertake report writing.

10. A capacity for adaptability and flexibility in a rapidly changing environment.

11. Demonstrated commitment to cultural diversity and a working knowledge of equity and OH&S principles in the workplace.

Minimum Standards for Academic Levels:

A Level A research academic will typically conduct research/scholarly activities under limited supervision either independently or as a member of a team and will normally hold a relevant higher degree.

A Level A research academic will normally work under the supervision of academic staff at Level B or above, with an increasing degree of autonomy as the research academic gains skills and experience. A Level A research academic may undertake limited teaching, may supervise at undergraduate levels, and may publish the results of the research conducted as sole author or in collaboration. He or she will undertake administration primarily relating to his or her activities at the institution.

Application Information:

Shortlisted applicants may be required to present a research seminar that will be open to the public.

This position may attract relocation assistance.
