Technische Universität DresdenDresden
The TU Dresden is among the top universities in Germany and Europe and one of the 11
German universities that were identified as an excellence university. The Department of
Psychology is among the top ranked in Germany.
At the Faculty of Science, Department of Psychology, the Neuroimaging Centre (NIC) invites
applications for a
(Subject to personal qualification employees are remunerated according
to salary group E 13 TV-L)
The position will start at the next possible date. The position is initially limited until June 30th,
2020. The period of employment is governed by the Fixed Term Research Contracts Act
(Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz - WissZeitVG). The position will give you an excellent chance
for further academic qualification (e.g. habilitation thesis). The NIC is a facility of the Department
of Psychology, managed in close collaboration with the Carl Gustav Carus Faculty of Medicine
and provides state-of-the-art neuroimaging to several research groups at the university. The NIC
is equipped with a research-only MRI scanner (Siemens 3T TIM Trio), MRI-compatible EEG and
eye tracking, a real-time fMRI setup, and a transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) unit.
Currently, the majority of projects at the NIC are funded by the German Funding Agency DFG
through a Collaborative Research Centre (SFB 940) "Volition and Cognitive Control:
Mechanisms, Modulators, and Dysfunctions" (www.sfb940.de).
Tasks: The MRI-Imaging Scientist will be part of the imaging physics group at the NIC, which
contributes image acquisition and processing expertise to the SFB within the Core Imaging
Facility. The primary task of the scientist will be to acquire and analyze resting state fMRI-data
using advanced multi-band fMRI sequences and processing pipelines in close collaboration with
SFB project C1 "Volitional dysfunction in self-control failures and addictive behaviors". Support
from experienced experimental neuroscientists will be available. The NIC is a hub of
interdisciplinary research with an emphasis on team work. It provides an ideal learning
environment for imaging scientists with an interest in cognitive neuroscience. Next to his/her
research activities, the scientist will share the responsibility of the MR-research group for the
seamless operation of the neuroimaging infrastructure.
Requirements: Candidates must have a university degree and a doctoral degree in a technical
discipline (physics, engineering, computer science, etc.), detailed knowledge of MR physics and
fMRI, and a solid research record including first-author publications; solid English language skills.
Experience within the field of neuroimaging and good computational skills are advantageous, in
particular experience with Python and Matlab. Furthermore, an ability to set up and maintain
technical equipment (e.g., MRI-specific stimulus presentation and response registration
equipment) and good German language skills would be beneficial.
We offer: being part of a motivated team of MR-physicists and methods developers; participation
in a highly interdisciplinary and attractive research environment; support through student
assistants with, for example, data acquisition; close collaboration with the Centre for Information
Services and High Performance Computing and access to large cluster computers; social
benefits, including a public service pension plan; a family friendly environment, e.g. affordable
daycare for children and flexible working hours.
Dresden is a city with low costs of living, beautiful architecture, high quality of life, close to firstclass
nature reserves, an arts, music and cultural scene of worldwide reputation, and a unique
concentration of scientific institutions.
For questions about this position please contact Dr. Michael Marxen (email@example.com, tel.: +49 351 463-42212).

preferentially via e-mail as a single PDF-file - to firstname.lastname@example.org (Please note: We
are currently not able to receive electronically signed and encrypted data.) or to TU Dresden, Fakultät Mathematik und Naturwissenschaften, Fachrichtung Psychologie, Neuroimaging
Centre, Frau Julia Herdin, 01062 Dresden. Please submit copies only, as your application will
not be returned to you. Expenses incurred in attending interviews cannot be reimbursed.
