Utrecht University's Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences is looking for a PhD candidate in Cognitive Neuroimaging. Are you interested? Then please read the full profile and apply.
We are seeking a highly motivated PhD candidate to investigate the human brain’s responses to the timing of events in different sensory modalities using advanced analyses of ultra-high-field (7T) fMRI data. The project will focus on presenting multisensory stimuli of varying timing in the scanner and developing model-based analyses of the resulting fMRI responses. The selected candidate will be supervised by Dr Ben Harvey at the Department of Experimental Psychology, Utrecht University, the Netherlands. This is a research position for four years, fully funded by an NWO VIDI Grant recently awarded to Dr Harvey. The starting date is between September and November 2018.
The research builds on the following studies:
