The institute of Neuroscience and Medicine at the Research Centre Jülich, Germany, has an open PhD student position in our collaborative project entitled “From spike trains to whole-brain dynamics – Bottom-up and top-down processing during active vision” to fill. This project addresses the question how visual input is processed in extremely short time cycles of fixations and saccades through interaction of various cortical areas. MEG recordings from human subjects performing free viewing tasks will allow for the simultaneous observation of neuronal activities from different cortical areas during active vision. Analysis of subjects’ performance and brain activity on these visual tasks enables us to study the information flow through various cortical areas, and to identify top-down components interacting with bottom-up processes.
The Neuroelectromagnetic Oscillations (NEMO) Lab, directed by Sarang Dalal and recently relocated to Aarhus University (Denmark), is recruiting postdocs and PhD students for a large ERC-funded project.
The ERC project will examine in detail how neural oscillations communicate information between the retina and cerebral cortex in humans, during presentation of various types of visual stimuli as well as during rest. This will involve several recording techniques, primarily magnetoencephalography (MEG) and electroretinography (ERG), with some components involving scalp EEG, intracranial EEG in epilepsy patients, and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).
Philips and Manipal University have been working together on various healthcare research projects since 2004. Manipal University with the support of Philips healthcare has created a research lab in the area of imaging at Radiodiagnosis department, Kasturba Medical College, Manipal. This joint research activity has transformed into a research lab known as Medical Imaging Research Suite (MIRS) where post graduate interns, research students, radiologists and engineers work together towards healthcare innovation.
Support from Manipal University for this joint research will be in the form of research scholarship for 3 years as per the University guidelines. In addition, the candidate will also be eligible for leave and support for the conferences as per the University guidelines. Philips will support towards the clinical science keys for the research development and also the expenses of the candidate for training in the area of MR pulse programming at Europe.
Nine PhD Positions in the Dutch Research Consortium ‘Language in Interaction’
We are looking for highly motivated PhD candidates to enrich a unique consortium of researchers that aims to unravel the neurocognitive mechanisms of language at multiple levels. The goal is to understand both the universality and the variability of the human language faculty from genes to behavior
From € 35.000 per annum (3 years)
Applications are invited for the above -post- position to work with Prof. Javier Minguez on a Marie Curie Initial Training Network funded project in Neural Engineering to underpin work at BitBrain Technologies (spin-off company of the University of Zaragoza) on the Brain Machine Interfaces for Motor Neurorehabilitation using Robotics. The successful candidate will register for a 3 year PhD in the Biomedical Engineering School of the University of Zaragoza.
