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

City: Paris

Country: France

Institution: Sorbonne University

Department: Neuroscience


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.

Required skills:

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.

Working environment:

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.

English level: B1 minimum

Constraints and risks: NA

Further information :

The candidate will have to provide a letter of motivation, a detailed CV recommendation and a letter of recommandation.
