Universität Bern


Nach Vereinbarung


Our research group is investigating effects of perceived colored light on the human brain and systemic physiology.  The Ph.D.-candidate (m/f) will work in the field of neuroimaging and complex biomedical signal analysis. Entrance as soon as possible (negotiable).


Colored light affects the human brain and systemic physiology.  Yet specific effects of the different colors are scarcely researched.  In our research group we address the topic by conducting studies in humans to systematically investigate specific effects of colored light with a multi-modal approach.  The Ph.D.-candidate will play a major role in carrying out such studies; apply state of the art non-invasive measurement modalities such as functional near infrared spectroscopy, a novel neuroimaging technique, along with other methods to measure systemic physiology and will analyze the complex data.
