  • 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 

2) Transcranial magnetic stimulation in combination with EEG:

  • motor mapping
  • motor control
  • neuromodulation

3) Development of the novel analytic and recording techniques for EEG/MEG
4) Brain Computer Interface and Neurofeedback

The job involves:

  • working under the direct supervision of Prof. Vadim Nikulin.
  • participants are encouraged to pursue their own research in parallel with working on the Group's research projects
  • writing research papers for international peer-reviewed journals in co-authorship with the members of the Centre for Cognition & Decision Making

  • a PhD from an international research university in such fields as: neuroscience, physiology, medicine, psychology, physics or computer science
  • Previous experience with neuroimaging methods (e.g. EEG, MEG or TMS) is an advantage
  • demonstrated ability and high motivation to conduct high-quality research publishable in international peer-reviewed journals
  • ability to work in a team,
  • fluent English
  • relevant experience is an asset although not required


General conditions for Post-Doctoral Research positions can be found here. Appointments will be normally made for one year.
