1. Two Positions (one PhD and one Post-doctoral) at the University of  
Barcelona

Applications are invited for a full-time post-doctoral research  
position and one PhD student in the Group of Attention, Action and  
Perception (http://www.pcb.ub.es/homepcb/live/en/p2153.asp) at the  
Parc Científic of University of Barcelona (Spain). The post is part  
of BRAINGLOT, a Spanish Research Network on
Cognitive Neuroscience (Consolider-Ingenio 2010 Scheme, Spanish  
Ministry of Science and Education).

2. Project

The project is conceived with an open and multidisciplinary vocation,  
as one of its major anchor points places the stress on the mutual  
influence (both in terms of cognitive and neural processes) between  
perception, multisensory integration, and the executive control  
attention. This is an excellent opportunity for professional growth  
for those interested in  the fields of psychology, neurobiology,  
cognitive neuroscience or related disciplines including computer  
science.
The Post-doctoral position is available mainly to lead brain imaging  
studies using fMRI of multisensory integration (possibly complemented  
with other methodologies like ERP, behavioral, etc...).

The PhD position is available mainly to conduct studies on  
multisensory integration using behavioural/psychophysical methods,  
human electrophysiology and/or
neuroimaging and it is an excellent opportunity to start an academic  
career for those interested in  the fields of psychology, neurobiology,
cognitive neuroscience or related disciplines.


3. Candidate Profile

Post-doc:
Candidates must have a completed (or near to completion) PhD and a

prime, and Matlab) will be strongly
valued. Applicants from outside the EU are welcome to apply but must  
qualify for a valid visa.

Ph.D:
We are seeking highly motivated applicants with an interest in the  
Cognitive Neurosciences and who have
(or are close to have) a degree in Psychology, Life Sciences, or  
related fields. Essential to the post are
good communication and writing skills. Some experience with  
psychophysics, behavioral,
neuropsychology, ERPs or other neuroimaging methodologies will be  
valued. Applicants from outside the
EU are welcome to apply but must qualify for a valid visa.
