A new exciting opportunity has arose to work with CINN-affiliated researchers Dr Michiko Sakaki and Professor Kou Murayama at the University of Tubingen as part of a PhD investigating the neuroscience and behaviour of gifted school children.

To quote directly from the job advertisement:

"We are seeking an excellent doctoral student who has strong passion to examine how to improve education for gifted primary school children by combining neuroscience and educational psychology. This is an exciting interdisciplinary project based on collaboration across the Hector Research Institute and the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Tübingen. The overarching goal of our project is to integrate neuroscience and education.

To this end, we aim to a) uncover the brain development of intellectually gifted children and b) to propose a new enrichment program on neuroscience for primary school children. The successful candidate will lead the development and validation of the enrichment program while being involved in neuroimaging data collection in gifted primary school children as a collaborator."
