[beasiswa] [info] PhD scholarship in Cognitive Neuroscience, Barcelona, Spain


-------- Forwarded Message --------
Subject:        PhD scholarship in Cognitive Neuroscience
Date:   Fri, 26 May 2017 09:14:24 +0000
From:   Brainlab - Cognitive Neuroscience Research Group <brainlab@UB.EDU>

The Brainlab, at the Institute of Neurosciences of University of
Barcelona seeks for candidates for a 3-year ESR contract (FI/FPU)
commencing the fall 2017.

Principal Investigator: Prof. Dr. Carles Escera

The PhD project focuses on the genetic determinants of subcortical
speech encoding and is funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and
Knowledge (project icCOGNITION – Subcortical contributions to auditory
cognition; PSI2015-63664-P).

The successful candidate will join the PhD Program in Biomedicine of the
University of Barcelona though a competitive and prestigious Spanish FPU
or Catalan FI fellowship.

The PhD project departs from our recent discovery that the serotonin
transporter-linked polymorphic region (5-HTTLPR) is involved in the
accurate encoding of speech sounds in the subcortical auditory pathway
(Selinger et al., 2016, Journal of Neuroscience, 36, 10782-10790; see
Figure). The study took advantage of the Frequency-Following Response
(FFR), an auditory brain potential derived from the EEG.

The PhD project aims at characterizing the functional consequences
(sound, speech and music perception and production) of this efficient
encoding, as well as the underlying neurocognitive mechanisms. It also
relates to a broader project in our Brainlab that uses MEG, TMS, fMRI
and the study of newborn populations to investigate the subcortical
neural mechanisms of auditory perception.

Candidates should have a strong degree in any field related to the
Neurosciences (Psychology, Cognitive Sciences, Biomedicine, Computer
Sciences, Medicine, Biology, Engineering)

Eligibility: 1] EU citizenship, 2] 300 ECTS completed (the Bachelor in
any Spanish university and at least 60 ECTS in a Master degree), 3] high
academic marks, 4] computer skills (e.g., Matlab)

Applicants should send: 1] a letter of motivation, 2] CV, and 3] a
official transcript of grades (in ECTS format) by email to Dr. Carles
Escera at cescera@ub.edu [subject: FPU – Escera]

Recommendation letters are also welcome

The estimated salary, before taxes, will be circa 16,000 EUR/year
