NEUROSPIN is looking for a post-doctoral researcher on the Neural Correlates of Consciousness
Applications are invited for a post-doctoral position to join a large-scale collaborative project (“Accelerating Research on Consciousness”) focused on testing two major theories of consciousness: global neuronal workspace theory (GNWT) and integrated information theory (IIT). Funded by a Templeton World Charity Foundation initiative (https://www.templetonworldcharity.org/arc), the project involves several exciting components including adversarial collaboration (team members include Stanislas Dehaene & Giulio Tononi), open science practices (pre-registration, data sharing, internal replications, etc.), and acquisition of large, rich datasets from three different techniques (M-EEG, fMRI, ECoG).
Profile: We are looking for a post-doc with strong background in cognitive neuroscience methods and interests in open science, big data, and big questions, i.e. the neural underpinnings of consciousness.
Eligible qualifications for this position include:
D. in Physics, Engineering, Cognitive neuroscience, or related discipline
Thorough knowledge of the technical, theoretical and practical principles of M/EEG, fMRI and EcoG and expertise in signal processing.
Fluent knowledge in computer programming (languages: Python, Matlab, shell scripting, C++)
Knowledge of cognitive neuroscience
