Post-doctoral position in Stockholm/Sweden

Job ID


A post-doctoral position (1 + 1 years) in cognitive neuroscience is currently available at the Neuroscience Department (Dr. K. Kilteni) at Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden.

We are looking for one highly motivated researcher with an interest in human motor control. The position is part of a starting grant project (awarded to Dr. K. Kilteni) investigating the neurobiological basis of somatosensory predictions during voluntary hand movements. The goal of the research is to understand how the brain distinguishes between self-generated and externally generated tactile sensations. To address this issue, we will use psychophysics, task-based and resting state functional magnetic resonance (fMRI), electroencephalography (EEG), as well as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) on healthy human subjects. The post-doc candidate will be involved in research to investigate the computational and neural mechanisms underlying the perception of self-generated touch using some of the above-mentioned methods.

The ideal candidate is a highly self-motivated, energetic researcher that is able to work independently, and in collaboration. A Ph.D. degree in neuroscience/ engineering/ psychology/ cognitive sciences or related field is necessary. Previous experience with fMRI, EEG or TMS is meriting. Skills in computational neuroscience will be highly appreciated.

Interested? Please contact Konstantina Kilteni ( directly, and include:
- detailed CV with publication list
- a brief statement of research experience and interests (1 page max)
- contact information for 2-3 references

There is some flexibility in the starting date, with preference May 2020.

Really looking forward to your application!
