Doctoral Fellowship in Multivariate Modeling in Cognitive Neuroscience of Aging

This is a full-time 4-year position. Salary starts at CHF 47’040.- (Swiss Francs) per year (50’040.-by year 3). The position starts in the Fall 2023 (at a convenient date).
The position entails the writing of a PhD thesis in psychology or neuroscience by producing various scientific papers with Naftali Raz, Ann Daugherty, Cheryl Dahle, based on advanced multivariate analyses of the Detroit Aging Brain Study data (e.g., Daugherty et al., 2015 and Ghisletta et al., 2019). In particular, we will study how multiple indicators
or cognitive performance, MRI-derived structural brain, and vascular and metabolic risk factors are intertwined. State-of-the-art statistical modeling techniques will be applied to longitudinal data to examine age-related change over several years, lead-lag relationships between cognitive and brain variables, and modifying influence of metabolic
and vascular risk factors on these associations and change trajectories.

PhD position available immediately in VISUAL and COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCE focusing on NEUROIMAGING

The successful candidates will work on projects recently funded by a SNSF-Starting grant, and will be investigating the brain mechanisms of spatial and object-based attention in healthy human subjects and stroke patients by means of multi-modal MRI and Virtual Reality. 
The PhD student will be appointed for four years, and should have a background in neuroscience, cognitive science, engineering, or related fields. Experience in quantitative methods, experimental research, and brain imaging will be highly beneficial. The ideal candidate is pro-active, able to work independently, and has excellent organization and communication skills. 
The candidates will have the opportunity to acquire, analyze and interpret multi-modal MRI and behavioral data from ongoing projects. Example projects include mechanistic studies of attention, high level vision, perception in traditional and Virtual Reality experiments, study of stroke patients. They will use mostly 3T MRI, with the possibility of exploratory experiments at high-field 7T MRI. Candidates will receive one on one mentoring and will work in a collaborative, vibrant, multi-disciplinary environment to gain experience in neuroscientific research. We offer a competitive salary. Good written and spoken English is a requirement.

RESEARCH ASSISTANTS @ Campus Biotech Geneva (09/2022)

The Functional Brain Mapping Laboratory (FBMlab, directed by Prof. Christoph Michel, Department of Basic Neurosciences at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Geneva, is opening 2 research assistants (RA) positions as a part of a project on Improvement of Autobiographical Memory in Mild Cognitive Impairment, directed by Dr. Lucie Bréchet in collaboration with Prof. Giovanni Frisoni.
Summary of the project
We will evaluate brain activity during autobiographical memory (ABM) ecologically valid tasks using high-density electroencephalography (hdEEG) in cognitively-unimpaired younger and older adults and age-matched individuals with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). We will then employ personalized, multi-channel Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation (tACS) to modulate brain oscillations and evaluate the impact on ABM.
The RAs will recruit healthy participants, prepare the personalized memory tasks, apply tACS and collect behavioral, MRI, and hdEEG data. In addition, the RAs will be in charge of the REDCap database.
Candidate requirements
The ideal candidate must:

  • have a MSc degree in neurosciences, psychology, or equivalent
  • have an acquired knowledge of basic EEG collection and analysis (at least pre-processing, knowledge of Cartool software ideal)
  • be motivated, know how to work independently and in a team
  • have a first-level knowledge of programming (Matlab, R, Python)
  • have a professional level of French and English
  • have a previous solid experience with a healthy and clinical population
  • have to work in synergy with personnel at the Memory Center, HUG
    We offer a competitive UNIGE/HUG salary. The positions are available immediately.
    If interested, please contact Dr. Lucie Bréchet ( and send a motivation letter, CV, diploma, and 1-2 references.
