PhD-position at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Berlin

The project „Cognitive and Neural Dynamics of Memory Across the Lifespan
(CONMEM)” at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Center for
Lifespan Psychology (Director: Prof. Dr. Ulman Lindenberger), is seeking
applications for a

Predoctoral Research Fellow

The doctoral fellowship will last for 2 (+1) years. The position is
available from May 1, 2014 or earlier.

Job Description
The CONMEM project (PIs: Dr. Yee Lee Shing & Dr. Markus Werkle-Bergner)
investigates lifespan changes in the interplay between associative and
strategic components of memory functioning on neural and cognitive
levels, with a focus on working and episodic memory (see Sander, et al.,
Neurosci. Biobehav. Rev., 2012; Shing, et al., Neurosci. Biobehav. Rev.,
2010). Future research will advance a multi-modal imaging approach (EEG
source imaging in combination with structural and functional MRI) to
uncover lifespan differences in rhythmic neural activity related to
perception, attention, and memory (e.g., Werkle-Bergner et al.,
Neurosci. Biobehav. Rev., 2006). The successful predoctoral fellow will
plan and conduct empirical studies in this domain, analyze the
behavioral, EEG, and MRI data, and prepare scientific manuscripts for
For further information, please contact:
Dr. Markus Werkle-Bergner (

A successful applicant needs to hold a diploma/master degree in
psychology, cognitive neuroscience, computer science, or related fields.
Applicants should have experience with conducting experimental research,
knowledge in neuroimaging methods (preferably EEG), and a solid
background in at least one programming language (preferably Matlab or
R). In addition, the ability to work independently as well as a high
proficiency of the English language is required.

The Max Planck Society is interested in increasing the number of women
on its scientific staff. We strongly encourage applications from women
and members of minority groups. In addition, the Max Planck Society is
committed to employing more handicapped individuals and encourages them
to apply.

To apply, please send (via email only) a statement of research
interests, a CV, a copy of relevant certificates, (p)reprints of
publications, and a list of two references to Dr. Markus Werkle-Bergner,
