Do you have a strong interest in the cognitive neuroscience of somatosensory perception? Are you motivated to develop into an independent scholar and scientist of the brain mechanisms of human somatosensation? Then join the Donders Centre for Cognition as a postdoc, to better understand the neuroscience of gargalesis perception (tickle) in humans.
You will be involved in designing, collecting, and analysing behavioural, and fMRI or TMS experiments including psychophysical, physiological and behavioural recordings.
You will be embedded in the research group of Dr Konstantina Kilteni at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour. You will be expected to have the background knowledge, skills and motivation that will allow you to fully utilise and learn from the rich research environment that the Donders Institute provides (including its intellectual and technical infrastructure).
You are motivated to develop into an independent scholar and scientist of the brain mechanisms of human somatosensation, who will be ready to acquire the skills required for conducting all phases of research, including literature review, conceptual and experimental design, coordination of study logistics, data collection, data analysis, data interpretation and publication. You will also be working closely in a team with multiple research group leaders, postdoctoral fellows, PhD candidates, research assistants and Research Master's students.
Fixed-term contract: You will be employed for an initial period of 1 year, after which your performance will be evaluated. If the evaluation is positive, the contract can be extended on a temporary basis.
