One part-time (50%) postdoc position in the Center for Sleep Medicine (University Hospitals of Geneva)

directed by Dr. Lampros Perogamvros.

Summary of the project

used to strengthen memory formation through the application of cues during sleep, improves PTSD

The postdoc scientist will recruit patients with PTSD, apply IRT and collect clinical and EEG data.

motivation letter, CV and publications, diplomas, and 2 references.
