Max-Planck-Institut für Bildungsforschung (MPIB)Berlin
The Center for Lifespan Psychology is seeking applications for a
Predoctoral Research Position
(E 13/2 TVöD; 39 hours/week)
The doctoral fellowship will last for three years. The position is available from August 1st, 2019, or later.
The successful candidate will be given the opportunity to contribute to a collaborative translational project involving the Max Planck Institute for Human
Development (MPIB; PIs: Simone Kühn and Ulman Lindenberger) in Berlin, the MPI of Neurobiology (MPIN; PI: Tobias Bonhoeffer), located near Munich, and the
MPI for Psychiatry (MPIP; PI: Carsten Wotjak) in Munich. The project will use motor-skill learning to relate training-induced changes in brain volume in
humans (MPIB) and mice (MPIP) to changes at the cellular level in mice (MPIN). The successful candidate will work primarily with human participants at MPIB,
and is expected to visit the Munich sites to participate in harmonizing experimental procedures across sites. In humans, particular attention will be given to
tracking behavioral, volumetric, neurochemical, and functional changes over time. The successful candidate will be supervised by Simone Kühn (Lise-Meitner Group
leader) and Ulman Lindenberger (Director of the Center for Lifespan Psychology) at MPIB, which offers a welcoming and international working atmosphere, and has
access to a research-only 3-Tesla MR scanner. In addition, a large community of Berlin neuroscientists and psychologists provides great opportunities for scientific
exchange. For informal inquiries and further information, please contact Simone Kühn (email@example.com).
We are searching for a predoc with a strong interest in brain plasticity and human development. Applicants need to hold a Master's or diploma degree in psychology,
