University of Salzburg
3 (4) year PhD studentship in experimental eating behavior research
How do individuals negotiate between short-term rewards implicated in palatable food ingestion and long-term health consequences? How can executive control over eating be enhanced? What are the neural mechanisms underlying appetitive behaviors?
These are some of the research questions we ask in our group. Specifically, we are developing a behavioral approach bias assessment and modification task and explore the role of brain stimulation and/or emotions on task performance using neuroimaging (EEG/MEG/fMRI).
The advertised position is part of the doctoral college imaging the mind with 12 students and a cutting edge scientific curriculum (https://phdim.ccns.sbg.ac.at/doctoral-college-im). Earliest starting date is October 2019. The program covers up to 4 years of salary with a fully funded 6-months research internship at collaborating external group. Candidates should have a background in Psychology, Cognitive Neuroscience or related disciplines and should be interested in eating behavior and/or reward processing, decision making or cognitive inhibition/executive control. Applied methodological skills in one or several of the following methods is advantageous: EEG, MEG, functional MRI, brain stimulation, reaction time based behavioral assessment. Skills or interest in technical or statistical programming languages (Matlab, R, Python) as well as statistical skills (e.g. multilevel modeling) are beneficial. While a good command of English is necessary, knowledge of German is optional. We aim for an equal representation of female students so women are especially encouraged to apply.
