Postdoctoral position: Real-time fMRI brain decoding

Applications are invited for a funded Post-Doctoral position at the Center for Mind/Brain Sciences (, University of Trento, Italy, in collaboration with the Fondazione Bruno Kessler ( and other partners. The position is part of a large grant (2.1 million Euro) recently awarded by the Autonomous Province of Trento to work on the topic "Characterizing and improving brain mechanisms of attention" (preliminary site:

The position will be for an expert in multivariate pattern analysis of fMRI brain data. The activities will include the design, the implementation and the validation of  real-time fMRI decoding methods to investigate the human visual attention system. The work will involve the integration of several aspects, including MRI acquisition (Jorge Jovicich), neuroinformatics (Paolo Avesani) and visual perception and attention (Marius Peelen).

Candidates should have a degree in Physics, Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, or a related field with a strong mathematical and computational background. Ideally they should have experience with real-time brain fMRI experiments

The position will be available from December 2013 for 2.5 years. Informal inquiries can be addressed to Paolo Avesani ( ) and Jorge Jovicich ( ). Interested applicants should send a CV, a statement of research interests, and the names and full contact details of three referees.
