Postdoctoral studies in Cognitive Neuroscience (scholarship)

We are seeking a highly talented, innovative and enthusiastic researcher with a PhD awarded within the past three years in cognitive neuroscience or in a related discipline to work on projects involving body representation, body ownership, multisensory integration, embodied cognition, or higher cognitive processes related to the self.

The research will be conducted at The Brain, Body and Self Laboratory at the Department of Neuroscience (www.ehrssonlab.se). Our laboratory has expertise in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), 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.

The ideal candidate will have expertise in experimental psychology (preferably psychophysics) and/or fMRI (preferably multivoxel pattern analyses) and or TMS (preferably theta-burst rTMS) and/or MEG/ EEG. The candidate is expected to work within the general framework of the research program (www.ehrssonlab.se), but will be relatively free to formulate his or her own ideas and proposals for projects. It is important that the candidate can independently formulate original scientific questions and innovative designs for experiments. Applicants should be able to demonstrate a consistently excellent academic record, including publications in high quality international journals.

Deadline: 18th March 2018

Postdoctoral studies in Magnetoencephalography (scholarship)

We are seeking a highly talented and enthusiastic researcher with a PhD in neuroimaging awarded within the past three years to work on projects in which magnetoencephalography (MEG) is applied to the problem of how we come to experience limbs as part of our own body.

The research will be conducted at the Brain, Body and Self Laboratory at the Department of Neuroscience (www.ehrssonlab.se). This center has widespread expertise in fMRI and human behavioural experiments. The MEG experiments will be conducted at the recently established “National Facility Magnetoencephalography (www.natmeg.se) that is equipped with a state-of-the-art MEG system (Electa Neuromag TRIUX), complementary physiological recording devices (MEG compatible 128–channel EEG, plethysmography, EMG, ECG, eyetracking), sophisticated stimulus delivery platforms (visual, auditory, olfactory, pain, somatosensory), and a MEG-compatible robot system for tactile stimulation of the hands.

The ideal candidate will have expertise in the acquisition and analysis of MEG data, (preferably on an Elekta TRIUX or Vectorview system), expertise in analysis of MEG data (preferably on FieldTrip and/or MNE), as well as excellent programming skills (preferably including MatLab and Neurobs Presentation). Expertise in analysis of EEG data would be an advantage. The candidate is expected to work on projects in which MEG methods are applied to questions relating to how multisensory signals from the body are integrated at the levels of cortical structures to give rise to dynamic changes in the feeling of ownership of limbs. Good social skills are important as the candidate is expected to actively collaborate with other members of the laboratory, in addition to running his or her own project. Applicants should be able to demonstrate a consistently good academic record, including publications in international journals.

Applications for Student Internships

For students (at BSc or MSc level) interested in conducting a student internship in the lab, please contact Prof. Henrik Ehrsson. Include a CV and brief motivation for why you would like to conduct an internship in the lab. Please note that we normally do not consider internships that are shorter than 3 months (with an exception for summer students where 8 weeks is the minimum). Summer students should contact Dr. Ehrsson before January 31st each year.
