Two postdoctoral positions, Donders Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging, Nijmegen, the Netherlands


We are looking for highly motivated candidates to enrich a unique Dutch consortium of researchers that aims to cross the boundaries of various disciplines to unravel the neurocognitive mechanisms of language and its interaction with other cognitive systems. This specific project aims to advance our understanding of the mechanisms of fast, flexible linguistic inference by leveraging recent major advances in our understanding of the representations and computations necessary for sequential model-based action planning.

Currently, our consortium advertises two Postdoctoral Researcher positions. These positions provide the opportunity for conducting world-class research as a member of an interdisciplinary team. Each position has its own requirements and profile.

General requirements for all positions are:

  • a degree in cognitive science, cognitive neuroscience, computational cognitive neuroscience, computer science, mathematics, mathematical psychology, formal linguistics, or a related field;
  • affinity with quantitative analyses;
  • strong motivation;
  • excellent proficiency in written and spoken English.

Applications from excellent candidates with a less than ideal profile will also be considered.

Application deadline is the 22nd of September 2019.
