POSTDOCTORAL POSITION at the BCBL- Basque Center on Cognition Brain and
Language (San Sebastian, Basque Country, Spain) www.bcbl.eu (Center of
excellence Severo Ochoa)
The Basque Center on Cognition Brain and Language (San Sebastian, Basque
Country, Spain) offers a Postdoctoral position in Cognitive Neuroscience.
The main project will focus on the oscillatory correlates of predictive
processing with a special focus on neural entrainment phenomena. The
successful candidate will be working within the research lines of the
Proactive group whose main aim is to develop high-risk/high gain projects
at the frontiers of neurocognitive science. The project is based upon a set
of MEG experiments that will be designed to unveil the neural mechanism
supporting predictive coding and predictive timing across sensory
modalities and cognitive domains. The long-term goal is to evaluate the
role that such predictive skills play for developmental disorders (such as
dyslexia or SLI).
The BCBL Center (recently awarded the label of excellence Severo Ochoa)
promotes a vibrant research environment without substantial teaching
obligations. It provides access to the most advanced behavioral and
neuroimaging techniques, including 3 Tesla MRI, a whole-head MEG system,
four ERP labs, a NIRS lab, a baby lab including an eyetracker, two
eyetracking labs, and several well-equipped behavioral labs. There are
excellent technical support staff and research personnel (PhD and
postdoctoral students). The positions have a term of appointment of 2 years
with a possible renewal.We are looking for cognitive neuroscientists,
computational modelers, physicists or engineers with EEG/MEG expertise.
Candidates should have a convincing publication track record and
familiarity with computing tools (Python/Matlab).
Deadline: January 31st, 2017.
We encourage immediate applications as the selection process will be
ongoing and the appointment may be made before the deadline.
