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, 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:
• Ph.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
Knowledge of the French language is not required, but would be a bonus.
The position is funded for three years. The postdoc will be based in the laboratory of Prof. Stanislas Dehaene at NeuroSpin. In addition to working on the pre-registered experiments and planned analyses, there will be many opportunities to explore independent questions using these same datasets. Candidates from backgrounds underrepresented in neuroscience are particularly encouraged to apply. Salary is commensurate with experience.
To apply, submit a CV, contact information for 2-3 references, and a cover letter highlighting relevant research experiences and interests
