The Department of Neurosciences of KU Leuven, invites scholars to apply for a full‐time research professorship in the research group neurophysiology. This position is funded by the Special Research Fund (BOFZAP), established by the Flemish Government. We are looking for motivated and internationally oriented candidates with an excellent research record and educational competence, in the field of brain research using non-human primates in combination with either other animal models or human brain research. The appointment is expected to start on October 1, 2023. Applications will be evaluated in parallel and independently by 1) the KU Leuven Research Council in a competitive process across academic domains and 2) the faculty advisory committee. During the first 10 years, the teaching obligations as a research professor will be limited. Afterwards, the position will be transformed into a regular professorship. The focus of the research should be on fundamental brain research using non-human primates, combined with other animal models or combined with human brain research. The research should be relevant to advance our understanding of the function of the human brain. The appointed candidate will be affiliated with the Laboratory of Neuro- and Psychophysiology in the Department of Neurosciences. The main strength of the research group is the combination of single cell electrophysiology, functional imaging and state-of-the-art causal perturbation methods in nonhuman primates. We also have the rare potential to integrate the invasive monkey studies with non-invasive functional imaging and electrophysiological studies in humans and intracranial recordings in patient groups. As such, the Laboratory of Neuro-and Psychophysiology is at the forefront of comparative primate research.
