DFG Funded Biology & Neuroscience PhD Position @ Max Planck Germany

The Department of Neurology at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig has an opening for a PhD position in a DFG-funded project in the Research Group “Obesity and Aging”, headed by Dr Veronica Witte.

We aim to determine the effects of obesity, nutrition, and modifying factors on the human brain, and to shed light on underlying mechanisms including an individual’s genetic background. We use functional and structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), behavioural data, peripheral markers, and genotyping in large cohorts of both young and old participants.

Your tasks
Under supervision, the successful applicant will work independently on MRI analyses, statistical analyses, literature research and manuscript drafting. Active participation in the group’s discussions, development of new projects and attendance at meetings is expected.

Your profile
We are looking for a motivated, self-organised, and team-oriented PhD student with a Master’s degree (or equivalent) in the disciplines neuroscience or biomedical sciences (psychology, biology, medicine, bioinformatics…). Previous experience in statistics, epidemiology, clinical trials, dealing with large datasets, neuroimaging methods, neuropsychological testing, neuroanatomy, imaging genetics or programming skills are an advantage. Fluent English is necessary.

Our offer
We offer a challenging, dynamic, innovative, international, and multidisciplinary environment at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in the attractive city of Leipzig, with state-of-the-art facilities for MRI (7T and 3T) and possibilities to engage in multiple collaborations.

Salary is based on the funding guidelines of the Max Planck Society. The Max Planck society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals. Position will be filled at the earliest opportunity.
