- Reading and dyslexia
- Neurodegeneration, brain damage and rehabilitation
- Language and other cognitive systems

The Center promotes a rich research environment without substantial teaching obligations. It provides access to the most advanced behavioural and neuroimaging techniques, including 3 Tesla MRI, a whole-head MEG system, four ERP labs, a NIRS lab, a baby lab including an eye tracker, two eyetracking labs, and several well-equipped behavioural labs. There are excellent technical support staff and research personnel (PhD and postdoctoral students).
We are looking for cognitive neuroscientists or experimental psychologists with a background in psycholinguistics and/or neighbouring cognitive neuroscience areas, computational modellers, and physicists and/or engineers with fMRI/MEG expertise.
These five year Fellowships are directed to promising young researchers; they are intended to offer a track towards a PI role and independent research. The selected Fellows should be able to acquire the necessary skills for a research leader role. Ikerbasque is committed to offer a long-term career to the research community: Fellows in their 5th year can be assessed for a permanent position.
The applicants must have their PhD completed between 1/1/2010 and 31/12/2018. Applications from women are especially welcomed. The eligibility period will be extended under special circumstances such as maternity. A support letter from the host group is mandatory.
