Postdoctoral researcher
80 - 100 %

The Research Group of Cognitive Neuroscience of Memory and Consciousness of the Institute of Psychology is looking for a post-doctoral researcher by agreement, but by 1 August 2023 latest.

This postdoc position will work on a large project with the title 'Strengthening memory formation for retrieval despite amnesia”, which is funded by an SNSF Advanced Grant. The project involves ultra high-field (7 T) magnetic resonance imaging of memory at SITEM-Insel in Bern using functional, anatomical, and spectroscopic imaging in heathy and amnesic individuals. We manipulate the memory formation in healthy and amnesic individuals using brain stimulation to increase long-term potentiation. We trace the formed memory traces over time and we examine long-term memory consolidation during night sleep using EEG and decoding methods.

Tasks
Conducting ultra high-field (7 T) magnetic resonance imaging of memory using functional, anatomical, and spectroscopic imaging in heathy and amnesic individuals. Applying brain stimulation. Collecting and evaluating EEG data during night sleep.
Requirements
We seek a highly talented and motivated postdoctoral researcher with a background in human memory research, in MRI methods or brain stimulation methods or sleep research. The candidate is expected to be fluent in programming (matlab, python, R) and comfortable using analysis toolboxes.
We offer
We offer excellent mentorship and academic advice, mutual scientific exchange, a competitive salary, work in a dynamic, ambitious and multidisciplinary team, flat hierarchy, good national and international collaborations, excellent research infrastructure and office space, intellectual freedom, high scientific standards, innovative research at the international cutting-edge and a flexible start date.
