[postdoc position] cognitive neurosciences, MEG, NeuroSpin France

Post-doctoral positions are available in the Cognitive NeuroImaging Unit / NeuroSpin MEG group near Paris (France) to work with Dr Virginie van Wassenhove .


Applications are invited from talented, dynamic, committed, and enthusiastic researchers.


The scientific project will be exploring the interface between time perception, temporal processes and cortical dynamics (assessed by MEG/EEG). Specific components of this project include (but are not restricted to): novel psychophysical designs addressing time estimation and the dynamics of multisensory processing together with novel analytical methods for MEG/EEG signal analysis/tracking.


The ideal applicant will have a sound experience with MEG (and/or EEG techniques), a strong record in Cognitive Neurosciences and an overall good set of skills in applied signal processing. A degree in Neurosciences, Cognitive Neurosciences, Psychology or other related fields is required. Programming skills are a plus.


Applicants will be expected to conduct MEG experiments, from acquisition to data analysis - other techniques are not excluded (EEG, fMRI for instance). Their intellectual contribution to the project is strongly encouraged. Our group is located in a state-of-the-art neuroimaging facility (NeuroSpin: http://www-dsv.cea.fr/en/instituts/institut-d-imagerie-biomedicale-i2bm/services/neurospin-d.-le-bihan) and is part of a large scientific community in the Parisian area.

The application package should contain a motivated letter of intent, a detailed résumé with a list of publications, and contact information from at least two senior researchers. Inquiries and applications should be sent to Virginie.van-Wassenhove@xxxxxx  or Virginie.van.Wassenhove@xxxxxxxxx

Please, put POSTDOC in the email subject. Applications will be considered until the positions are filled.
