PhD Candidate at Brain Stimulation and Cognition lab

Updated: 3 months ago
Job Type: Temporary
Deadline: 08 Jul 2021

This PhD position is part of a larger grant focusing on combining transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), electroencephalography (EEG), and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to study neural network mechanisms of cognition, cognitive control and reward processing, in healthy volunteers. Although not of direct relevance for this particular project, the overall aim is to translate these basic findings into improved and personalized TMS effects within the depression network of the brain.

Candidates who wish to apply ideally have some background in these techniques (TMS, EEG, fMRI), and/or their multimodal application, with an education in  cognitive neuroscience or biomedical science. The grant is a collaboration with dr. O’Shea from Oxford and prof dr. Baeken from Brussels.

The primary tasks and responsibilities of the PhD student will be: 1) to actively participate in the development of the experimental design, acquisition, and analysis of neuroimaging data; 2) to collaborate with the other members of the research group, and 3) to write and publish research articles.

Preferred starting date: October 2021, with some flexibility to start few months later when needed.
