Postdoctoral position at the Department of Experimental and Applied Psychology of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium)
We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher for a 1-year project on cognitive control.
The project will be supervised by Eva Van den Bussche (Vrije Universiteit Brussel; http://homepages.vub.ac.be/~evdbussc/ and http://copsresearchgroup.be/) and Tom Verguts (Universiteit Gent; http://users.ugent.be/~tverguts/).
The supervisors are specialized in cognitive control. Each department (Brussels and Ghent) provides a stimulating environment for cognitive neuroscience research.The candidate will carry out behavioral, EEG and fMRI experiments. Experience with these techniques (especially fMRI) is a requirement. We have access to a research-dedicated 3T Siemens MR scanner, Biosemi ActiveTwo EEG system and state-of-the-art equipment for experimentation. Candidates should have a doctoral degree in psychology, (cognitive) neuroscience, or a related discipline on the starting date.
The starting date can be anywhere in 2016, so candidates who will defend their PhD in the near future can also apply. Salary is according to standard Belgian regulations. Although the official language at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and Ghent University is Dutch, knowledge of Dutch is not required.
Interested candidates should send a CV, motivation letter, and two (email) addresses of potential referees to Eva.Van.den.Bussche@vub.ac.be.
Informal inquiries can also be sent via email. Candidates will be considered until the position is filled.
