2 Open Post-doc positions at the Family Dog Project! Come and join us!

1. A post-doctoral fellowship position is available in the Department of Ethology at ELTE University, Budapest, to study the neural correlates of emotion processing in dogs and humans, with specific emphases in the application of novel research methods like non-invasive, awake fMRI and EEG measurements in dogs. The post-doc will plan and execute laboratory research projects, analyse data, and participate in the development and validation of neuroscientific methods to expand the role of the dog as a model species to study human socio-cognitive abilities. In addition, the post-doc will have the opportunity to supervise students, participate in lab meetings, present at conferences, and write grants and manuscripts.
The post-doctoral position requires a PhD degree – preferably in neuroscience; a high level of skill in technologies to be used for the project (EEG and/or MRI), and excellent English skills, both verbal and written.
The fellowship position is a limited-term appointment; it will be available from 1st September 2017, until 31st December 2018, and will be funded by an OTKA research grant (payment is based on Hungarian research fellow salary).
Requirements
– PhD – preferably in neuroscience
– training in experimental design and statistical analysis
– strong interest in experimental work in an interdisciplinary project
– excellent English skills, both verbal and written are essential
– experience in running human EEG/fMRI tests and/or analysing neuroimaging data is a distinct advantage

2. A post-doctoral fellowship position is available in the MTA-ELTE Comparative Ethology Research group at the Department of Ethology at ELTE University, Budapest. The post-doc’s task will be to study the behavioural analogies between cats and humans, with specific emphases in the application of novel research methods. The post-doc will plan and execute laboratory research projects, analyse data, and participate in the development and validation of methods to explore the role of the cat as a model species to study human socio-cognitive abilities. In addition, the post-doc will have the opportunity to supervise students, participate in lab meetings, present at conferences, and write grants and manuscripts.
The fellowship position is a limited-term appointment; it will be available from 1st August 2017, until 30st June 2022, and will be funded by an MTA research grant (payment is based on Hungarian research fellow salary).
Requirements:
– PhD – preferably in biology
– training in experimental design and statistical analysis
– strong interest in experimental work in an interdisciplinary project
– excellent English skills, both verbal and written are essential
– experience in running behavioural tests and/or analysing neuroimaging data is a distinct advantage
