The Independent Max Planck Research Group "Neural & Computational Basis of
Learning, Memory and Decision Making" at the Max Planck Institute for Human
Development in Berlin, led by Dr. Nicolas Schuck, seeks applicants for 1
Postdoctoral Researcher (m/f/d) (E 13 TVöD; 39 hours per week).
Our group looks for a postdoctoral candidate in the field of cognitive
neuroscience as part of an ERC-funded research project. The project will focus
on investigating the effects of ageing on memory processes, such as replay,
using advanced fMRI analysis techniques.
Applicants need to hold (or expect to hold by the start of the contract) a
doctorate in Psychology, Neuroscience, Biology, Computer Science or related
disciplines, and should have experience with using functional neuroimaging,
behavioral and/or computational methods. A record of publishing in peer-
reviewed neuroscientific journals and familiarity with multivariate fMRI
analysis techniques, on topics related to aging neuroscience, are highly
beneficial. In addition, the ability to work independently and high
proficiency of the English language are essential. Applications from more
experienced candidates with previous postdoctoral experience are welcome and
salary scales can be adapted accordingly.
What we offer
We offer to become part of a vibrant and successful research team which does
cutting edge science, values curiosity and team spirit. Our lab has access to
excellent infrastructure (behavior, fMRI, EEG, eye-tracking and HPC)
including support staff and is well integrated into the local and
international research communities. We value diversity of ethnicity, gender
identity or expression, disability, national origin and other characteristics.
The position will last for a minimum of 2 years with the possibility of
contract extension pending satisfactory performance. The position is available
from January 1, 2022 on. Later start dates are possible, but long delays in
commencing the project are less desirable.
The Max Planck Society strives for gender and diversity equality. The Max
Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with
disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such
Applicants should submit a cover letter describing research interests (max. 2
pages), a curriculum vitae and 1 or 2 representative publications. We kindly
