Do you want to contribute to top quality research?
The Brain, Body and Self Laboratory, lead by professor Henrik Ehrsson at the
Department of Neuroscience, is now seeking a highly talented, innovative, and
enthusiastic researcher with a Ph.D. awarded within the past three years in
cognitive neuroscience or in a related discipline to work on the ERC project
The project, which is initially ongoing for 2 years, focuses on neuroimaging
experiments on the multisensory experience of one's body as a whole using
functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and full-body illusion
Our laboratory has expertise in functional magnetic resonance imaging
(fMRI), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), electroencephalography,
and behavioral approaches (including virtual reality technology). We have
access to two state-of-the-art 3-Tesla MRI scanners and one MEG scanner at the
Karolinska Institutet and Stockholm University (SUBIC).
Qualified to be employed as a postdoctor is one who has obtained a doctorate
or has equivalent scientific competence. Applicants who have not completed a
doctorate at the end of the application period may also apply, provided that
all requirements for a completed degree are met before the (intended) date
of employment. This must be substantiated by the applicant's main supervisor,
director or equivalent.
The ideal candidate will have expertise in human fMRI neuroscience
(preferably multivoxel pattern analyses) and experimental psychology
(preferably perception science). Expertise in other imaging methods or
psychophysics is a plus. The candidate is expected to work mainly on the ERC
SELF-UNITY project (for more information, please visit www. ehrssonlab.se),
but will also have the opportunity to develop their own ideas within the areas
of body representation, sense of self, and embodiment. The candidate should
independently design and carry out fMRI and behavioural studies on full-body
illusion paradigms and write up good first drafts of scientific manuscripts..
Applicants should demonstrate a consistently excellent academic record,
including publications in high-quality international scientific journals.
