PhD position in Cognitive Neuroscience
Ehrsson's group at the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden, has funding available for
a 4 year PhD position in cognitive neuroscience. Our work focuses on how we come to
experience that we own our body, and why we experience that we are located inside our
physical bodies. To address these issues we use a combination of behavioral and
functional imaging methods. For more information about our research visit
Our lab is based at the Department of Neuroscience and Stockholm Brain Institute, a
centre of excellence for cognitive and computational neuroscience
(www.stockholmbrain .se). This offers an outstanding scientific environment with access to

medicine or engineering, with a strong and documented interest in cognitive
neuroscience. We are looking for a highly motivated and talented individual that can
