The group of Prof Sébastien Jacquemont is working on a translational project covering the fields of clinical neuroscience, genomics, neuroimaging, and EEG. The project aims at characterizing the effects of selected genomic variants on cognition and behavior, as well as their association with autism and schizophrenia. The group is recruiting talented Ph.D. students. The ideal candidate is ambitious and highly motivated for pursuing a career in science, holds a master's degree in neuroimaging, cognitive neuroscience, human genetics or equivalent.
This project offers a stimulating, young and international environment working on 2 research sites (Montreal and Lausanne). During their Ph.D., successful candidates will acquire experience in designing, collecting and analyzing multimodal dataset including genetics, cognitive, behavior, neuroimaging and EEG data. To reach this goal and ensure maximum transdisciplinarity for the student, relevant co-direction will be offered.
