Postdoc, Neuropsychology of Brain Plasticity in Magdeburg (Germany)

FULL-TIME SCIENTIST POSITION available for a postdoc in the field of neuropsychology or cognitive neuroscience as a group leader to direct research on visual system plasticity and rehabilitation. We develop and test new methods of vision diagnostics and treatment to achieve vision restoration in patients with visual field loss after damage to the optic nerve or brain (stroke) combined with brain connectivity analyses (EEG and MRI). The position comes with funded support by a technician and 3 doctoral students.

We are an interdisciplinary and international team of psychologist, biologists and software engineers working in an exciting field of neuroscience aimed at treating blindness by means of modifying brain plasticity. To this end we use vision training and non-invasive brain stimulation procedures to enhance residual vision. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8p3mWsLvAI).

You have a doctoral degree in Psychology, cognitive neuroscience or related field; have prior publication experience, and a burning desire to succeed in academia.
