Post-doctoral Position In France: Brain imaging, neuropsychology and music in patients with memory disorders
Dear list members,
I paste below all the informations about a post doctoral position in
France. All inquiries should be addressed to Professor SÃverine Samson (
Can you please forward this info to any whom interested.
Thanks in advance
One full-time postdoctoral research scientist position is available in
Brain imaging, neuropsychology and music in patients with memory
disorders (SeÌverine Samson, France, severine.samson@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx)
12 month position, neuropsychology (epilepsy patients) and neuroimaging
(fMRI) at the University of Lille in collaboration with La SalpeÌtrieÌre
Hospital in Paris.
The selected candidate will be part of an ongoing, multi-disciplinary
project assessing the benefits of music on memory funded by the French
National Agency of Research. The ideal candidate will have a PhD in
Psychology, Neuropsychology, Neuroscience or related fields with skills
in experimental design and neuroimaging methods (fMRI, EEG). Applicants
with interests in music, speech, memory or emotion are encouraged to
apply. Prior experience working with human participants is highly
desirable but not required.
* Objective of the post doctoral research
The fellow will investigate the benefits of music on memory and
learning abilities and the possible transfer of skills to nonmusical
domains in various clinical populations (epilepsy and Alzheimer
patients). Neuroimaging and neuropsychological studies of auditory
memory and emotion will be conducted using music in healthy and
brain-damaged participants. This work might also require extensive
analysis of data from memory experiments. The project is highly
interdisciplinary and will involve frequent interactions with clinical
collaborators (Epilepsy Unit) and other neuroimaging scientists (Centre
for NeuroImaging Research (CENIR) - ICM) at La SalpeÌtrieÌre Hospital in
*Methods planned for the post doctoral research
Behavioural and fMRI methods in patients with memory disorders (e.g.,
temporal lobe epilepsy) as compared to healthy participants.
Ph.D in Experimental Psychology, Neuropsychology, Neuroscience or
related fields. Knowledge of research design, statistical skills,
programming skills (e.g., MATLAB).
Prior experience of fMRI and/or EEG techniques.
Interest in music and/or memory.
French speaking is highly desirable but not required.
