Postdoctoral Fellow in Neurodynamics

The Neurodynamics Group, Centre for Cognition & Decision Making, Institute for Cognitive Neuroscience

HSE University

Moscow, Russia


Centre for Cognition & Decision Making, Institute for Cognitive Neuroscience in Moscow, Russia, invites applications for postdoctoral research positions at the Neurodynamics Group.


About HSE University

The Higher School of Economics (HSE University) is a young, dynamic and fast-growing Russian research university. Over the past 25 years, HSE University has become a leader in Russian education, while also being recognized globally.

For instance, we were the first state-run university in Russia to begin recruiting on the international academic market. We aim at being a university with a highly attuned approach to training new professionals. Therefore, we are eager to hire people with real experience, as well as basic and applied knowledge. Committed to high-quality research, HSE University now has more than 100 research institutes and centres and over 50 international research laboratories collaborating with international specialists from all over the world.



The general requirements for the postdoctoral fellowship positions are the following:

  • Candidates must hold a recent PhD in the field of neuroscience, physiology, medicine, psychology, physics, computer science or related areas which was awarded over the last 5 years or received before starting work at HSE in a relevant field by an internationally recognized university and has been assessed by external reviewers as having the potential to pursue research that is publishable in leading peer-reviewed journals;
  • Relevant experience with neuroimaging methods (e.g. EEG, MEG or TMS) is an advantage;
  • Ability to work in team;
  • Fluent English is an obligatory condition as research and other activities are conducted in English. Knowledge of Russian is not required.


The position involves:

1) Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) in combination with EMG/EEG/ECG:

  • motor mapping
  • motor control
  • neuromodulation
  • development and application of adaptive TMS on the basis of EEG/EMG/ECG and other biological measurements reflecting functional state

2) Neuronal oscillations:

  • functional significance
  • synchronization and causality analysis
  • relation to evoked responses
  • cross-frequency neuronal interactions
  • complexity analysis, criticality
  • pathological neuronal dynamics in neurological (stroke, Parkinson's disease) and psychiatric (schizophrenia, depression) disorders 

3) Development of the novel analytic and recording techniques for EEG/MEG

4) Brain Computer Interface and Neurofeedback

5) Investigating structural and functional factors predisposing the course and the recovery after stroke and other organic and functional pathologic conditions (such as Parkinson's disease, functional motor disorders etc.)



Appointments are made for one year. Postdoctoral fellows have an opportunity of renewal of the contract (no more than two times).

HSE University offers postdoctoral fellows a competitive salary, the standard medical insurance plan, a working space equipped with a computer and free Internet access at the University.

The Centre for Cognition & Decision Making offers access to its equipment such as Multichannel electroencephalography (EEG) (BrainProducts, NeurOne), MRI-navigated Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (nTMS) (Nexstim, MagVenture + Localite), Magnetoencephalography (MEG), Transcranial Electrical Stimulation (TES) and Eye Tracking (Oculography).
