POSTDOCTORAL POSITION – NEUROSCIENCE OF MOVEMENT LABORATORY - NEMO

The Neuroscience of Movement Lab at the University of Padova, directed by Umberto Castiello, is considering applications for a two-year postdoc position starting in Spring 2015. The postdoc will contribute to several programs of research in the lab that span multiple areas within motor neuroscience, including the neural characterization of upper limb movements, joint actions and perception for action. The lab takes a multi-method approach using functional neuroimaging (fMRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), electrophysiology (EEG/ERP), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and three-dimensional analysis of movement. Co-registration of EEG and kinematics with fMRI signal is also a possibility.

More information on the lab’s research can be found at  www.nemolaboratory.com

 

The position is designed for a talented researcher with a PhD in psychology, neuroscience, physics, mathematics or a related field, who takes innovative approaches to motor neuroscience. Experience with MR data collection and a background in designing and analyzing fMRI experiments are necessary. Additional experience with multivariate approaches such as multivoxel pattern analysis is uniquely attractive.

 

Interested applicants should submit a CV, a statement of research interests, and contact information of 2 referees to Prof. Castiello at umberto.castiello@unipd.it. Salary and benefits will be commensurated with experience.
