Postdoctoral research position (3 years) at the department of Cognitive Neuroscience/Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience/Maastricht University.
The grant aims at furthering understanding of laminar functional MRI signals by combining in-vivo electrophysiology in humans (NYU), high field MRI (NYU/CMRR/Maastricht) and computational modeling (Maastricht/CMRR).

The post doc will be embedded in the auditory group at Maastricht University and supervised by dr. Martin Havlicek, dr. Federico De Martino, Prof. Elia Formisano, and in collaboration with Prof. Kamil Uludag (CMRR/Toronto/Suwon).
The primary responsibilities of the Postdoctoral researcher will be:
1) developing and testing neural mass model of laminar responses that can be used to analyze laminar electro-physiological and ECoG recordings and laminar fMRI-BOLD data;
2) collaborating with other members and parts of the research program;
3) writing and publishing of scientific articles.
Preferred starting date: September 2019 or as soon as possible.
Candidates should hold a degree and PhD in one of the following disciplines: Neuroscience, (Biomedical) Engineering, Computer Science or Mathematics, have an excellent publication record and scientific reputation. Candidates should have a strong theoretical interest in modeling brain activity at mesoscopic (i.e. neuronal mass) level and have good programing skills (e.g. using Matlab, Python or other language). Previous experience in one or more of the following topics/techniques will be strongly appreciated: neural mass modeling, predictive coding, dynamic causal modeling (DCM), non-linear differential equations, Bayesian model inversion.
The terms of employment of Maastricht University are set out in the Collective Labour Agreement of Dutch Universities (CAO). Furthermore, local UM provisions also apply.
