4-years post-doc or PhD position on functional/structural neuroplasticity in CFS (closed)

posted Dec 22, 2011, 6:15 AM by Floris de Lange   [ updated Aug 22, 2012, 12:24 AM ]

We seek an excellent postdoctoral researcher or PhD student for a project on neurobiological and neurocognitive markers of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. The project is a collaboration between the Expert Centre Chronic Fatigue (Hans Knoop, Jos van der Meer) and the Donders Institute (Ivan Toni, Floris de Lange, Peter Hagoort). The project will be conducted at the Donders Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging in Nijmegen.

The goal of the project is to characterize neuronal and motivational changes associated with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and isolate neurobiological markers for predicting successful therapeutic intervention with cognitive behavioral therapy. The project will involve using non-invasive neuroimaging methods (Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy, structural morphometry, functional magnetic resonance imaging) on patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Post-doc applicants should have a doctoral degree in a relevant field and a strong academic record, including publications in international journals. They should have demonstrated excellent data analysis skills. Experience with MRS, VBM, fMRI, and testing clinical populations is considered a plus.

You can e-mail Floris de Lange for more information w.r.t. this vacancy.
