A postdoctoral position (2 years + 1 year extension possible) with Bruno Rossion at the face categorization lab, University of Louvain (Belgium)

The face categorization lab (http://www.nefy.ucl.ac.be/Face_Categorisation_Lab.htm) at the University of Louvain http://www.uclouvain.be/en-universite.html) would like to recruit a postdoctoral researcher to start in september 2012 (flexible, within a few months). The position is funded by an ERC grant to study face perception by means of steady-state visual evoked potentials (SSVEP) in humans, and the EEG frequency-tagging approach in particular. The postdoc will work in designing and running SSVEP experiments on face perception related to recent work (Rossion & Boremanse, 2011, JOV). The project is about human EEG data mainly, but a contribution to analysis of monkey physiology data and human intracerebral data recorded to SSVEP face stimulation is also possible.

Candidates should have a PhD in experimental, cognitive, biological or mathematical psychology, or in a related field (e.g., neuroscience, biomedical science, computer science, physics, mathematics). Training in vision and EEG research is important. MatLab programming skills are necessary. Knowledge of face perception research is an advantage, but is not necessary. The candidate will work in a laboratory with a strong  background in face perception research, with multiple methods available (EEG, fMRI, eyetracker, brain-damaged patients with prosopagnosia, development) and a wide range of international collaborations. The postdoc will collaborate on this project with the laboratory of Tony Norcia at Stanford University.

The appointment is for 2 years (+1) with immediate start date. Applications should be sent by email to Bruno Rossion (bruno.rossion at uclouvain.be) and should include a CV, a brief statement of research interests, the expected date of availability and the names of 3 references. Applications should be sent immediately and will be considered until the position is filled.

Starting salary should be in the range of 2200 euros per month net income.
