Postdoc positions for MSCA Individual Fellowship in Cognitive Neuroscience
Call for postdoc candidates interested in applying for a MSCA Individual Fellowship in Cognitive Neuroscience and related fields (e.g. neuroscience of language)
The CEITEC (Central European Institute of Technology), the Multi-modal and Functional Imaging Laboratory (MAFIL), is seeking for excellent young researchers planning to apply for a Marie Skƚodowska-Curie individual fellowship (MSCA-IF) to pursue a career in research. We invite applications from promising young researchers within the field of cognitive neuroscience and related disciplines.
This is an opportunity to accelerate your research career while living in the very heart of Europe, in Brno, which ranks repeatedly among the most attractive student cities in the world. CEITEC, a Centre of Excellence, is a part of the research infrastructure that was built in 2014 and provides equipment and conditions for basic and applied research, especially in the field of life sciences. The areas of research at CEITEC MU include (but are not limited to) multimodal brain MRI, research on neurodegenerations, pain research, neuroscience of language, large-scale neural network research underlying human behaviour or research on epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease. For the research foci of our research groups please visit the links below.
Candidates are encouraged to discuss their future plans with their potential supervisor from CEITEC and learn how to write a successful MSCA-IF application. CEITEC’s grant office is ready to help you with the project proposal and heads of research groups will be pleased to help you with your application.
Please send your CV (max 3 pages) and describe a research project that will strengthen and complement the presented research directly to your selected supervisor (a head of the research group)You can find research foci of our research groups here:
Main research areas include:
- Multimodal brain MRI: search for early diagnostic and prognostic markers of neurodegeneration (human and animal studies)
- Central and peripheral pain research
- Non-invasive brain stimulation and other noninvasive interventional methods and their use in multimodal approach (MRI, EEG) to study cognitive, behavioral and affective functions in behavioral neurology and psychiatry
- Language Research
WebsiteMajor research areas include:
- Large-scale neural network dynamics underlying human behaviour.
- Cortical excitability, from molecular to behavioural levels.
- Neural underpinning of social cognition in healthy individuals and pathological conditions – hyperscaning possible!!
Major research areas include:
- Research of advanced recordings, data analysis and multimodal integration methods (MRI, HD EEG, fMRI/EEG) in brain mapping
- Understanding the role and interactions of cortical and subcortical functions in processing higher level brain activities in health and disease
- Development and implementation of advanced methods for CF MAFIL
- Research on epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, vascular parkinsonism, cognitive functions, writing, music, and stress resilience
Virtual tour of our core facility is available here.
The core facility MAFIL (Multi-modal and Functional Imaging Laboratory) is a leader of Brno EuroBioImaging Node and biomedical branch of the Czech BioImaging network. The MAFIL is equipped with two 3 T Siemens Prisma MRI scanners just for research, non-invasive brain stimulation devices including rTMS device (Deymed) and neuronavigation system, the GTEN 400 neuromodulation system integrated into 256-electrode EEG cap (Geodesic EEG System 400), and EyeTracker (EyeLink 1000 plus by SR Research).
