PhD & postdoc positions are available at the University of Vienna, Austria. The successful candidates will join an interdisciplinary team to investigate biofeedback in the context of exposure therapy, closed-loop neurofeedback using real-time fMRI, and/or machine learning applied to brain and behavioral data.
Experience in data analysis, designing and running experiments, familiarity with scripting/programming and excellent English language skills are advantageous. Ideally, we are looking for a combination of all these skills, but you should also apply if you are more computational or more empirically-experimentally oriented.
The posts are available immediately, but there is flexibility with the start date. The PhD position is for 3 years. The postdoc position is for up to 6 years. Salary depends on experience and is based on the Collective Bargaining Agreement (Article 48f).
