[visionlist] Graduate assistant positions available at University of Arizona

The University of Arizona Neuroscience Graduate Interdisciplinary program is growing and looking to recruit talented and motivated graduate assistants. With over 55 faculty whose research spans diverse areas of neuroscience, the program provides a unique, integrated training and mentorship approach for a career in research, teaching, or neuroscience-related careers in academia, research centers, industry, business and/or government. Principal research areas of strength include aging, pain, emotion motivated behavior, neuro-immunology, molecular & cellular neuro- and synaptic physiology, and the molecular basis of neurological and neurodegenerative diseases.

Our alumni have become successful faculty at research universities and liberal arts colleges, scientists at Biotech companies and leaders at government agencies and private foundations. UA is located in Tucson, a great place to live, with a vibrant culture, warm climate year-round, outdoor adventures (including easy access to national parks), and low living costs. Application deadline for the Neuroscience PhD program (https://ift.tt/2RkaYzw) is December 1, 2018.

[visionlist] Postdoc in cognitive neuroscience of object and scene perception, Donders Institute, The Netherlands

A postdoctoral position is available in the group of Marius Peelen at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour (Nijmegen, The Netherlands). The Donders Institute offers excellent lab and neuroimaging facilities, courses, and technical support.
The research group, funded by an ERC grant, uses fMRI and EEG/MEG to investigate the neural basis of factors that contribute to efficient naturalistic vision, such as object grouping, perceptual learning, context-based predictions, and attentional set. We also study the principles underlying the organisation of high-level visual cortex. 

As a postdoctoral researcher you will be expected to take the lead in developing and performing fMRI and (fMRI-guided) TMS experiments that reveal the function and causal contribution of object- and scene-selective cortices during naturalistic visual perception. Studying related topics, within the scope of the lab’s interests, may also be possible.

You should preferably hold a PhD in cognitive neuroscience, psychology, or a related field, and have relevant experience in visual perception research and a strong motivation to pursue a scientific career. Experience with fMRI and/or TMS is highly desirable, as is experience with scientific programming (e.g. MATLAB, Python). You will work in a highly collaborative lab environment and you will be expected to participate actively in lab events, discussions, and research collaborations.For informal inquiries, email m.peelen@donders.ru.nl

[visionlist] University of Arizona Physiological Sciences Grad Program

The University of Arizona is currently accepting applications for PhD, MD/PhD and MS programs in the Physiological Sciences Graduate Interdisciplinary program. Please forward to any students you think might be interested.

Are you interested in neuroscience but would like to integrate your knowledge of the brain with knowledge about other body systems and human health?

The Physiological Sciences Graduate Interdisciplinary Program at the University of Arizona is a great fit for those with a background in neuroscience.

Physiological research is concerned with how systems, from molecules to entire organisms, function. Current researchers in our program study how sleep and blood pressure are regulated by the brain, to recording responses to light from individual neurons in the healthy and diseased retina, to recording neuromuscular responses to determine how to improve neuroprosthetic devices.

The UA requires PhD students to complete a minor, which gives you the opportunity to expand your knowledge in areas outside of physiology, such as a Neuroscience minor.

Quick facts about our program:

* Top 10 Physiology PhD programs in the United States (NRC)
* PhD students are fully-funded
* Master’s students can apply for funded Teaching Assistantships
* 70+ internationally recognized training faculty members
* Dual MD-PhD program offered, allowing completion of both degrees in less time
* Interdisciplinary nature of the program allows for interactions with faculty across diverse research areas

I encourage you to visit our website for more information about our areas of research, faculty members, funding opportunities, alumni testimonials, and admissions information.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.

I hope to hear from you soon!
