The successful candidate will work in a successful team that continuously generates new experimental data based on the results of biostatistics, e.g. genetic or pharmacological interventions.

Tasks:

  • Learn and develop established and novel techniques to analyze genome-wide expression data and other omics data from healthy liver tissues and liver diseases.
  • Establish advanced biostatistical methods to better understand toxic mechanisms and liver disease

What we expect:

  • PhD in statistics, biostatistics, biology or a related field, if excellent knowledge of bioinformatics is available
  • Interest in medical and biological applications; a relevant minor in the master’s program or life science-related work as an undergraduate or in the master’s thesis is desirable, but not required

The junior research group “Neuroimaging and Interindividual Differences” (Dep. Psychology and Neuroscience) is looking for a

research assistant (PostDoc) (m, f, d)

the position is limited to a period of 4 years.

Description of activities

Subject to the approval of the funder, we are looking for a scientist at postdoctoral level for an exciting project in human fear extinction learning. Using advanced multimodal imaging methods in humans we will test how dynamic interactions between core regions of the fear extinction network and other related networks shape learning. We will use high-resolution laminar 7T recordings in order to disentangle feedforward and feedback interactions. These experiments will be conducted via simultaneous EEG and 7T fMRI recordings in order to unravel the electrophysiological origins of the aforementioned interactions.

The project is part of a collaborative research center SFB 1280 “Extinction Learning” which is an interdisciplinary network of partners from the fields of psychology, medicine, neuroinformatics and biology funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). Scientists from the Ruhr University Bochum and the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Duisburg-Essen, the Leibniz Research Centre for Working Environment and Human Factors at the Technical University of Dortmund and the Philipps University of Marburg are cooperating.

Your qualification

  • PhD in psychology, neuroscience, physics, engineering or computer science
  • proven expertise with respect to conduction, and analysis of, structural and functional MRI data and EEG data
  • Expertise in high-resolution laminar 7T recordings or simultaneous EEG/fMRI recordings
  • Matlab programming skills

Our offer

  • A full-time position with currently 39,83 working hours per week
  • Remuneration according to the collective agreement for the public service of the federal states (Job value EG 13 TV-L. The grouping takes place depending on the collective bargaining and personal requirements).
  • All social benefits provided by working for the public service: e.g. an annual bonus, payment of benefits
