Job ID: 117023
Research Engineer in Electrophysiological Data Analysis (M/F)
Position: Engineer position to analyze intra-EEG and multi-unit data in relation to navigation behavior and eye movement
Deadline: 15 February 2024
Employment Start Date: 1 March 2024
Contract Length: 6 months, extendable to 18 months
Institution: Sorbonne University
Desired educational level: Master 2 or Engineer
Type of contract: Fixed-term contract
Contract duration: 6 months, extendable to 18 months
Expected hiring date: between January 1st and April 1st 2024 at the latest
Desired experience: Bac + 5
Section CN : Brain, cognition, behavior
Activities: Analysis of electrophysiological and behavioral data collected during a virtual environment navigation task with eye movement tracking.
Strong programming skills (Matlab or Python). Desired experience in signal processing, statistical analysis and/or regression methods. Previous experience in electrophysiological signal analysis (e.g. EEG, LFP, unit activity) will be a plus. Knowledge of and interest in cognitive neuroscience, particularly in the fields of navigation, memory, learning, attention or visual perception.
The project will be carried out within the Cervelet, Navigation et Mémoire (CeZaMe) team, at the Laboratoire Neuroscience Paris Seine of the Institut de Biologie Paris Seine of Sorbonne Université – CNRS – Inserm, Paris. The project is conducted in collaboration with the ICM and the Pitié-Salpêtrière epilepsy department, where the data will be collected. The data to be analyzed by the candidate will be recorded from epileptic patients during a navigation task in a virtual environment involving learning and strategy changes. The CeZaMe team, first to highlight the role of the cerebellum and its processing of movement in spatial representation, is made up of a dozen women and men, engineers, researchers and teacher-researcher combining complementary expertise in functional imaging, electrophysiology and behavior in humans and mice, analysis of unitary neuronal coding and cell biology.
