Postdoctoral Researcher: Connectivity of the Temporal Lobe Language System (Junior) at the Donders...

Updated: 4 months ago
Job Type: Temporary
Deadline: 07 Apr 2022

A two-year postdoctoral position on individual differences in the organisation of the brain’s language network is available at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour at Radboud University Nijmegen. We seek a postdoctoral researcher who is interested in using advanced statistical analysis tools to study how differences in the anatomical organisation of the brain are related to differences in brain function and language behaviour.
You will be responsible for studying individual differences in temporal lobe organisation and language behaviour across a large neuroimaging dataset obtained within the context of the Language in Interaction consortium. You will also be responsible for quality control, pre-processing, and statistical analysis of large neuroimaging datasets including diffusion MRI, resting state fMRI, and task-based fMRI data.

You will adapt and further develop advanced analysis methods to study so-called connectivity gradients, use these to characterise individual variance in brain anatomy, and relate observed variance to functional and behavioural data.

You will communicate with a diverse team of researchers who have designed the study and collected and pre-processed the data thus far. You will translate advanced analysis pipelines developed within the consortium to this dataset and communicate the results to the diverse group of researchers forming the consortium and the larger international scientific community.

You will be expected to become a full member of the Language in Interaction consortium and of the Cognitive Neuroecology Lab and the Sound Learning group at the Donders Centre for Cognition and as such to contribute to lab meetings and consortium meetings, and to perform such scientific citizenship duties that can normally be expected of a postdoctoral researcher.
