Postdoc position in the cognitive neuroscience of memory

WorkplaceBern, Bern region, Switzerland

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position at the University of Bern, Switzerland, in the memory and consciousness laboratory of Katharina Henke.

The position covers four years.

The start date is flexible. Latest starting date is August 1, 2023.


The postdoc will work on a large project with the title ‘Strengthening memory formation for retrieval despite amnesia”, which is funded by an Advanced Grant. The project involves ultra high-field (7 T) magnetic resonance imaging of memory at SITEM-Insel in Bern using functional, anatomical, and spectroscopic imaging in heathy and amnesic individuals. We manipulate the memory formation in healthy and amnesic individuals using brain stimulation to increase long-term potentiation. We trace the formed memory traces over time and we examine long-term memory consolidation during night sleep using EEG and decoding methods.


I seek a highly talented and motivated postdoctoral researcher with a background in human memory research, in MRI methods or brain stimulation methods or sleep research.

The candidate is expected to be fluent in programming (matlab, python, R) and comfortable using analysis toolboxes.

International applicants are welcome.

We offer

  • There are opportunities to pursue additional related research projects.
  • Competitive Swiss postdoc salary guaranteed.
