Post-doctoral position at the Brain Dynamics and Cognition Team

Two years Post-doctoral position available

Lyon Neuroscience Research Center, Brain Dynamics and Cognition Team, Lyon, France

Applications are invited for a Post-doctoral position at the Brain Dynamics and Cognition Team, in the Lyon Neuroscience Research Center, in France. The focus of the position is on the investigation of the electrophysiological markers of attention, vigilance and conscious perception, in healthy subjects and non-communicating and non-responsive patients.

The post-doctoral fellow will be part of a three years multi-partner project. Within the laboratory, she/he will be incorporated in a team of researchers, engineers, post-doctoral and doctoral fellows who work on various research and clinical applications of human electrophysiology. Techniques range from EEG, MEG to SEEG (in collaboration with the Neurological Hospital on site). In interaction with the team members, the post-doctoral fellow will be in charge of designing and performing new experiments to test hypothesis about the functional role of electrophysiological markers.

The candidates should have a PhD in Neuroimaging, Human electrophysiology, Cognitive neuroscience, Biomedical Engineering or a related area. Experience with high density EEG or MEG in humans is highly desirable (acquisition, processing, statistics) as well as programming skills (Matlab). Application from candidates with previous experience or special interest in related fields such as research in attention, coma or vegetative state patients, real-time electrophysiology and brain-computer interfaces are welcome.

The Lyon Neuroscience Research Center integrates the multidisciplinary expertise of 14 teams (about 350 researchers), including university-researchers, clinician-researchers, technicians and engineers, doctoral and post-doctoral fellows, making possible a synergistic approach on integrative and cognitive neurophysiology and its related brain disorders. The neural and molecular substrates of brain functions, from sensory and motor processes to cognition and mind, are investigated along two entwined strategic directions: from gene to behavior, and from bench to patient. Our aim is to bridge the gaps between the different levels of investigation, and to reinforce a translational research with reciprocal exchanges between basic conceptual advances and clinical challenges. The Neuroimaging facilities include an EEG, MEG, TMS, MR and PET scans as well as access to SEEG recordings in epileptic patients.

Please address questions or send CV, letter of application with research interests, and two references to Jérémie Mattout (jeremie.mattout@inserm.fr). Applications will be considered until position is filled. Starting date is negotiable.
