TweetThis! Karolinska Institutet is looking for a PhD position in Cognitive Neuroscience

Workplace: Department of Neuroscience
Form of employment: Temporary
Scope: Full-time
Description of the work group/equivalent and its work/focus:

Ehrsson's group at the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden, has funding available for a 4 year PhD position in cognitive neuroscience. Our work focuses on how we come to experience that we own our body, and why we experience that we are located inside our physical bodies. To address these issues we use a combination of behavioural and functional imaging methods. For more information about our research visit www.neuro.ki.se/ehrsson/

Our lab is based at the Department of Neuroscience and Stockholm Brain Institute, a centre of excellence for cognitive and computational neuroscience (http://www.stockholmbrain.se/). This offers an outstanding scientific environment with access to a number of methodological platforms. The Karolinska, which is one of Euorpe's top medical universities, has many foreign students and professors.

Qualifications: The candidate must have a master degree in psychology, neuroscience, medicine or engineering, with a strong and documented interest in cognitive neuroscience. We are looking for a highly motivated and talented individual that can actively contribute with own ideas and proposals. Proficiency in oral and written English is necessary, as are good social skills.

We have funding for 4 years including all costs for running experiments, travel costs for conferences.

To be registered as a PhD student at the Karolinska Institute the student need to fulfil the General Eligibility criteria, see: http://ki.se/ki/jsp/polopoly.jsp?l=en&d=11973&a=29596
