The German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) is a unique nonuniversity
research center which is dedicated to the subject dementia and all its
areas, as well as other neurodegenerative diseases. The center compasses the
full spectrum of fundamental research through population sciences to health
care research. The DZNE stands for excellence in research and science management,
translation of scientific results into practice, interdisciplinarity and
internationalization. It is a research center within the Helmholtz Organization of
German research centers. With over 1,000 employees from 55 nations, spread
over 10 sites, the DZNE is one of the national and international leading research
centers in its research field.
The DZNE in Magdeburg is looking for a
PhD student (f/m/d)
to join the "Neuroprotection" group led by Prof. Notger Müller in Magdeburg.
The position is available within our research dedicated to the interaction of
working memory with other cognitive processes such as attentional control.
We aim to investigate what mechanisms determine an individual's memory
capacity and why the latter varies so tremendously between humans. By
understanding these mechanisms we hope to open avenues for the prevention
of age-related cognitive decline and neurodegenerative diseases. Methods
to be applied include (f)MRI, EEG, MEG, eyetracking, TMS and TES. The
project involves designing dedicated experiments, analyzing of the data and
preparing scientific manuscripts for publication.
The candidate should have a background in psychology, neuroscience, biology
or medicine. Prior experience with analyzing neurophysiological data is
desirable but not indispensable. The candidate should be interested both
in applying modern state-of-the-art neuroimaging and psychophysiological
techniques and in working with elderly subjects some of which may also
suffer from neurodegenerative diseases such as dementia. The candidate
should have an open mind to collaborate with other groups in and outside
Magdeburg. For further information please contact Prof. Dr. med. Notger
Employment, payment and social benefits are consistent with those at other
research institutes. The job location is Magdeburg, Germany. The position is
available starting May 2019 for 2 years (with an option for extension).
You will obtain special skills and knowledge for your scientific qualification
during your activities at DZNE. The DZNE is an equal opportunity employer.
It is committed to employing disabled individuals and especially encourages
them to apply.
