Germany: postdoc and two PhD students

We are seeking a postdoc and two PhD students to work in the Neural Mechanisms of Human Communication Research Group led by Katharina von Kriegstein at the TU Dresden, Germany.

Postdoc Position

The main research goal of the position is to investigate behavioural and neuroscience principles of perceptual learning and their translation to evidence-based teaching and training programmes. For more information on the position and application instructions see: http://tinyurl.com/y9396qdd

PhD positions

The main research goal of the two positions is to investigate behavioural and neuroscience principles of voice and face perception (identity and speech) in neurotypical populations as well as in populations with developmental person recognition deficits (i.e. phonagnosia and prosopagnosia). For more information on the position and application instructions see: http://tinyurl.com/ybvodeqo

The Human Communication Research Group is currently based at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig (MPI-CBS; www.cbs.mpg.de/independent-research-groups/human-communication) and will be newly established at the TU Dresden. The TU Dresden offers an excellent, interdisciplinary scientific environment. Research will be carried out at the Department of Psychology of the TU Dresden, which houses a Neuroimaging Centre (http://www.nic-tud.de). The centre is equipped with a research-only 3-Tesla MRI machine, MRI-compatible eye tracking, EEG systems, and a neurostimulation unit including neuronavigaton, TMS and tDCS devices. All experimental facilities are supported by experienced physics and IT staff. For analyses with high computational demands, there is access to the TU Dresden high-performance computing clusters. There are also strong existing collaborations with the MPI-CBS in Leipzig involving 7 Tesla-MRI, Connectome scanner, and MEG data acquisitions.
