The aim of the LIME and RHYME research pro­jects is to under­stand the mech­an­isms that underly age dif­fer­ences in epis­odic and work­ing memory from child­hood to older adult­hood.

  • Interest in devel­op­mental neuro­cog­nit­ive psy­cho­logy or cog­nit­ive neur­os­cience
  • Good meth­od­o­lo­gical know­ledge (SPSS, R, MAT­LAB, Python) or the will­ing­ness to develop these skills
  • Know­ledge of ver­sion con­trol sys­tems (Git) is bene­fi­cial but not neces­sary
  • Pro­spect­ive interest in work­ing on the pro­ject for at least 1 year

  • Train­ing in the imple­ment­a­tion and eval­u­ation of EEG and (f)MRI stud­ies and data
