Two post-doc positions at the Time Perception lab – SISSA

2 post-doc positions are available to work with Domenica Bueti on a
European Research Council funded project (“How the Human Brain Masters
Time – BiT”) at the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA)
of Trieste (Italy).

By using neurostimulation (TMS, tDCS), neuroimaging (fMRI at 7T, and
EEG) techniques and the simultaneous combination of TMS and EEG, the
project aims to understand the neural mechanisms and the cognitive
architecture subserving human abilities to perceive, represent, and
manipulate information about time.

The candidates must have a PhD (or equivalent) in neuroscience or a
related field, should have expertise in either neurostimulation (TMS
and/or tDCS) or neuroimaging techniques (fMRI and/or EGG), have
competence in programming (Matlab, Python) and interest in the
research topic.  The successful candidate is expected to work within
the general framework of the project, but also to actively contribute
with his/her own ideas.

The starting date for these positions is flexible. Initially for two
years, the positions can be extended up to two more years. Salary
depends on experience and is based on SISSA regulations
(~€25.000-30.000/annum, net).

To apply, please send to Domenica Bueti ( in a
single pdf file, a CV, the contact information of two referees, a
brief statement describing your personal qualifications and future
research interests.

Please note that Domenica will be at the 1st Conference of the “Timing
Research Forum” in Strasburg this year (23-25th October) in case you
wish to talk to her in person about the advertised positions.
