Postdoctoral researcher

Dept. of Neurology

Working field:

We invite applications for a four-year postdoctoral position in the CRC 1315 project “Spatial Memory Consolidation Networks”. The CRC 1315 “Memory Consolidation” brings together outstanding memory researchers from Berlin institutions, including Charité, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Freie Universität Berlin and Technische Universität Berlin. The successful applicant will become a member of the Brain & Behavior Group at the Dept. of Neurology at Charité Berlin and will be embedded in an interdisciplinary network of basic and clinical neuroscience researchers. There will be continuous exchanges with Postdocs, PhD students and Faculty of the CRC and associated institutions, including the Excellence Cluster NeuroCure, the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience and the Berlin School of Mind and Brain.

  • The project combines electrophysiological, pharmacological, imaging and lesion approaches in human patients and normal human subjects with behavioral/virtual reality paradigms to study contextual modulation of spatial memory consolidation.

Scientific staff is given sufficient time to carry out their own scientific work in accordance with their employment relationship.


  • PhD/Dr in Medicine, Psychology, Cognitive Science, Neuroscience, Biology, Computer Science or related disciplines with excellent results
  • Experience in one of the proposed research methods (i.e., electrophysiology/intracranial recordings, neuroimaging (structural/functional MRI), human lesion studies, behavioral/virtual reality studies
  • Programming skills, preferably in Matlab, Python or R

  • Familiarity with memory research, spatial cognition and hippocampal function
  • Experience in the study of clinical populations
