Functieomschrijving

A brief glance at a natural scene is often sufficient for understanding the gist of the scene and to detect multiple task-relevant objects as well. This ERC-funded project examines the neural basis of factors that make naturalistic vision so effortless, including statistical learning, object grouping, context-based predictions, and top-down attentional guidance.

As a researcher, you will be expected to take the lead in developing and performing neuroimaging experiments (fMRI, EEG, MEG, or TMS) addressing one of these factors, measuring and analyzing responses in high-level visual cortex during naturalistic visual perception.

Functie-eisen

You should hold a PhD in cognitive neuroscience, psychology, or a related field, and have relevant experience in visual perception research and a strong motivation to pursue a scientific career. Experience with fMRI, EEG/MEG, and/or TMS is highly desirable, as is experience with scientific programming (e.g. MATLAB, Python). You will work in a highly collaborative lab environment and you will be expected to participate actively in lab events, discussions, and research collaborations.

Conditions

  • Employment: 40 hours per week.
  • A maximum gross monthly salary of € 4,978 based on a 38-hour working week (salary scale 11).
  • The exact salary depends on the candidate's qualifications and amount of relevant professional experience.
  • In addition to the salary: an 8% holiday allowance and an 8.3% end-of-year bonus.
  • Duration of the contract: 2 years.
  • Start date is flexible.
  • You will be able to make use of our Dual Career Service: our Dual Career Officer will assist with family-related support, such as child care, and help your partner prepare for the local labour market and with finding an occupation.
  • Are you interested in our excellent employment conditions?
