Post-doc Positions at the International School for Advanced Studies, Trieste, Italy


Two post-doc positions are available to work with Domenica Bueti on aEuropean Research Council funded project (How the Human Brain Masters Time) at the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) of Trieste (Italy).

By using neurostimulation (TMS, tDCS), neuroimaging (fMRI at 7T, and EEG) techniques and the simultaneous combination of TMS and EEG, the project aims to understand the neural mechanisms and the cognitive architecture subserving human abilities to perceive, represent, and manipulate information about time.

The candidates must have a PhD (or equivalent) in neuroscience or a related field, should have expertise in either neurostimulation (TMS and/or tDCS) or neuroimaging techniques (fMRI and/or EGG), have competence in programming (Matlab, Python) and interest in the research topic.  The successful candidate is expected to work within the general framework of the project, but also to actively contribute with his/her own ideas.

The starting date for these positions is flexible. Initially for two years, the positions can be extended up to two more years. Salary depends on experience and is based on SISSA regulations (~25.000-30.000/annum, net).

To apply, please send to Domenica Bueti in a single pdf file, a CV, the contact information of two referees, a brief statement describing your personal qualifications and future research interests.
