[visionlist] Postdoc in visual cognitive neuroscience at The Donders Institute, The Netherlands

A postdoctoral position is available at The Donders Institute (Nijmegen, The Netherlands). In this project, we will examine the neural basis of factors that contribute to efficient naturalistic vision, such as object
grouping, perceptual learning, context-based predictions, and
top-down attentional set.
The project will be embedded in the Donders research theme
‘Perception, Action and Control’ (Dr Marius Peelen’s group, http://ift.tt/2uYPU9Z). You will be expected to take the lead in developing and performing
neuroimaging experiments that characterise the neural basis of
naturalistic vision. Facilities to support this project include fMRI and
MEG, available at the Donders Institute.

The Donders
Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour focuses on state-of-the-art
cognitive neuroscience, using a multidisciplinary approach, and offers
excellent lab and neuroimaging facilities, courses, and technical
support.

Preference
will be given to candidates with a PhD in cognitive neuroscience or a
related field, who have a strong motivation to pursue a scientific
career. Experience with neuroimaging techniques (fMRI or MEG/EEG) and
strong programming skills are highly desirable, as is a background in
high-level vision and/or attention research.

Application deadline is 1 August 2017
