Functieomschrijving

Are you a motivated scientist in the field of psychophysics and/or neuroscience, looking for the next step in your career? Then join the world-renowned Donders Institute as a postdoctoral researcher and work with top-notch experimental equipment to understand the neural mechanisms of sensory processing in complex multisensory environments.

Your research involves studying the eye-head gaze-orienting control system in complex multisensory re-orienting sensorimotor tasks in healthy volunteers and sensory deprived patients. Buzzwords: computational modelling, optimal control, multisensory integration, moving sounds, vestibular stimulation. Our mission is to understand the neural mechanisms of sensory processing and goal-directed motor control in complex multisensory environments, in health and disease. You will perform advanced psychophysical studies (recordings of 3D eye-head motor responses) with unique, top-notch experimental equipment.

Functie-eisen

  • You hold a PhD in psychophysics, biophysics, neuroscience, medical biology, bio-medical engineering, computational neuro-science, or a related field.
  • You are strongly motivated to conduct challenging, interdisciplinary, empirical and model-driven research.
  • You have experience with computational modelling, machine learning, and quantitative data analysis.

Conditions

  • Employment for 0.8 - 1.0 FTE.
  • The gross monthly salary amounts to a minimum of €2,846 and a maximum of €4,490 based on a 38-hour working week, depending on previous education and number of years of relevant work experience (salary scale 10).
  • You will receive 8% holiday allowance and 8.3% end-of-year bonus.
  • It concerns a temporary employment for 2 years.
  • You will be able to use our Dual Career and Family Care Services. Our Dual Career and Family Care Officer can assist you with family-related support, help your partner or spouse prepare for the local labour market, provide customized support in their search for employment and help your family settle in Nijmegen.
  • Working for us means getting extra days off. In case of full-time employment, you can choose between 29 or 41 days of annual leave instead of the legally allotted 20.
Additional employment conditions Work and science require good employment practices. This is reflected in Radboud University's primary and secondary employment conditions. You can make arrangements for the best possible work-life balance with flexible working hours, various leave arrangements and working from home. You are also able to compose part of your employment conditions yourself, for example, exchange income for extra leave days and receive a reimbursement for your sports subscription. And of course, we offer a good pension plan. You are given plenty of room and responsibility to develop your talents and realise your ambitions. Therefore, we provide various training and development schemes.
