Aufgaben

We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to work on the European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant project “How the human thalamus guides navigation and memory: a common coding framework built on direct thalamic recordings” (DirectThalamus), awarded to Dr. Tobias Staudigl, Professor for Cognitive Neuropsychology, at the Ludwig-Maximilans University (LMU) Munich, Germany. The project investigates the neuronal basis of memory and spatial navigation processes, with a focus on the contribution of subcortical brain regions. The successful applicant will work in a multi-disciplinary environment on a project that aims at understanding the electrophysiological basis of memory processes, in particular the mechanisms of memory consolidation in subcortical brain areas. The project comprises research in clinical as well as healthy populations.

Your responsibilities:

  • conduct research (including data acquisition, analyses and interpretation) in the context of memory consolidation
  • prepare and participate in project-based publications
  • participate in and present research at national and international conferences and workshops
  • participate in teaching and (co-)supervising students
  • support and help organize project based events and activities
  • participate in organizational and administrative tasks

Anforderungen

Your profile:

  • a PhD in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, biomedical engineering, or related fields
  • fluent in written and spoken English, fluent in spoken German
  • experience in recording, analyzing and interpreting sleep physiology (sleep staging), electrophysiological data (MEG, EEG, or intracranial EEG) and in conducting targeted memory reactivation studies in humans
  • proficiency in scripting languages (e.g., Matlab, Python, R); experience with advanced multivariate analyses (e.g., pattern classifiers, RSA) and the Fieldtrip toolbox is desirable
  • strong publication record
  • interest in teaching and (co-)supervising students
  • willingness to participate in grant applications
  • enthusiasm for fundamental research

The successful candidate will have expertise in the acquisition and analyses of electrophysiological (EEG, MEG, or intracranial EEG) and physiological sleep data. A background in memory research / memory consolidation is highly desirable, as well as prior experience in conducting targeted memory reactivation studies in humans. The candidate should be a highly motivated researcher who is enthusiastic about fundamental memory research and willing to actively participate in scientific exchange in a multidisciplinary work environment as well as the national and international research community. The successful candidate is expected to participate in teaching and (co)-supervision of master and doctoral students. Since the project involves research with patients in a clinical setting, knowledge of German is desirable.

Applicants with disabilities who possess essentially equal qualifications will be given preference. LMU Munich is an equal opportunity employer committed to excellence through diversity, and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.
