The position involves a fulltime temporary appointment for 3 years (postdoc) or 4 years (PhD student). Starting date: Mid-2018. The imaging work will be conducted together with the Spinoza Center for Neuroimaging and single-unit recordings will be performed in collaboration with the VUmc medical center and UMC Utrecht.

Postdoctoral candidates will be expected to have experience with fMRI techniques and/or electrophysiological techniques in humans or animals and a solid background in cognitive neuroscience. Experience with computational modelling would also be considered a plus. All candidates must be able to speak Dutch to a reasonable level as the project involves closely working with Dutch patients.
