We are looking for a motivated, committed person to start immediately

        student assistant (8-10 h/week)

Your task is to help organize and carry out fMRI, EEG and behavioral experiments.
We are looking for someone who can work diligently and well organized, is not afraid of computers and enjoys dealing with other people.

Doctoral Research Associates

The Department of Biological Psychology (Institute of Psychology) at the University Münster invites applications for

two positions as
                                                                 Doctoral Research Associates
                                                                (E13 TV-L, 65%, )
in Cognitive Neuroscience.

Start of contract will be as soon as possible, but 1st of October 2022 at the latest. We are offering a fixed-term part-time position (65%) for three years.
You are invited to join a collaborative research team on predictive mechanisms in human brain and behavior (http://www.uni-muenster.de/PsyIFP/AESchubotz/en/index.html). We are interested in the classification of different types of prediction, in statistical and semantic knowledge feeding predictions, and in learning and adaptation processes triggered by prediction errors. We use neuroimaging (fMRI), electrophysiological (EEG, EDA) and intervention techniques (TMS) in healthy subjects and impaired populations (e.g. Parkinson’s Disease; Asperger Autism; Dementia). Your tasks: The positions are tied to working towards a doctorate. The candidates will be engaged in the project Learning from quantified episodic prediction errors: Individual biases in gist revision. This project is part of the DFG research unit 2812 “Constructing Scenarios of the Past: A New Framework in Episodic Memory” at the Ruhr University Bochum and the University of Münster. The research unit studies the cognitive and neuronal mechanisms underlying the constructed scenarios that make up episodic memory. It employs and combines approaches from Philosophy, Psychology as well as Experimental and Computational Neuroscience. The project uses fMRI to investigate the neuronal correlates and dynamics of recalling faithful and modified episodic memories. We seek to understand the conditions that render the memory of a truly experienced episodemore or less susceptible to later modification. To this end, the two PhD students will work in close collaboration. Our expectations: Applicants should hold an above-average M.Sc. in neuroscience/psychology/biology or relatedfields and have already shown a strong motivation for cognitive neuroscience. Prior experimental experience inneuroimaging or electrophysiological methods would be highly valuable. The candidates will be required to engage in programming (MatLab, presentation, and fMRI-specific tools).
The University of Münster is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the proportion of women academics. Consequently, we actively encourage applications by women. Female candidates with equivalent qualifications and academic achievements will be preferentially considered within the framework of the legal possibilities. 
 
The University of Münster is committed to employing more staff with disabilities. Candidates with recognized severe disabilities who have equivalent qualifications are given preference in hiring decisions.
To apply, send your CV, a brief description of research interests, list of publications, and the names of two potential references to
                                                      Ricarda Schubotz, rschubotz@uni-muenster.de.
Applications will be considered until 30 June 2022.
 

Postdoctoral Research Associate

The Department of Biological Psychology (Institute of Psychology) at the University of Münster (WWU),
Germany, is looking for a
                                                                          Postdoctoral Research Associate
                                                                          Wissenschaftliche/r Mitarbeiter/in
                                                                          (salary level TV-L E13, 100%)
in the field of Cognitive Neuroscience.

The duration of this full-time position is three years, with the possibility of an extension.
You are invited to join a collaborative research team working on predictive mechanisms in the human
brain and behaviour. We are interested in the classification of different types of surprise, predictions,
the statistical and declarative knowledge that supports predictions, and the adaptation and learning
processes triggered by prediction errors. We use neuroimaging (fMRI) and electrophysiological (EEG,
SCR) techniques on healthy subjects and impaired populations (e.g. Parkinson’s disease, stroke,
schizophrenia, Asperger autism). The research group has an EEG laboratory with a shielded booth and
systems for acquisition of heartbeat and skin conductance data, behavioural laboratories, a laboratory
with neuro-navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and controlled access to a 3T research
MRI scanner (Magnetom Prisma, Siemens). A 3D video data acquisition system for analysing body and
eye movements of group of individuals is currently under construction. We maintain several active
collaborations with neurological and psychiatric departments.
Your tasks:
You will develop and conduct your own research project in line with the methodology and research
focus of the group. At the moment, we want to advance two topics in particular: the prediction horizon
and the cost-benefit functions of prediction. We value your active involvement in the research projects
of our doctoral students, supporting and advancing them through scientific exchange and sharing of
methodological expertise. As a full-time employee, you will be required to teach four hours per week
during the semester.
Our expectations:
Applicants should hold a graduate degree and a completed PhD in neuroscience/psychology/biology
or related fields, have already demonstrated a strong motivation for cognitive neuroscience and/or
computational neuroscience, and a promising publication list . We are particularly looking for
candidates who have advanced skill using fMRI or EEG and a profound knowledge of statistics and
programming. Experience with eye tracking and/or SCR would also be a plus.
The University of Münster is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the
proportion of women academics. Consequently, we actively encourage applications by women.
Female candidates with equivalent qualifications and academic achievements will be preferentially
considered within the framework of the legal possibilities.
The University of Münster is committed to employing more staff with disabilities. Candidates with
recognized severe disabilities who have equivalent qualifications are given preference in hiring
decisions.
Positions can generally be filled as part-time positions if there are no compelling work-related reasons
against doing so.
To apply, send your CV, a brief description of research interests, list of publications, and the names of
two potential references to
                                                Ricarda Schubotz, rschubotz@uni-muenster.de.
Applications will be considered until 1 June 2022.
