Post-doctoral researcher in cognitive neuroscience (FES/EEG)
Combined functional electrical stimulation (FES) and electroencephalography
(EEG) study of movement initiation
Starting date: Fall 2017 or Spring 2018
Duration: 1 year (renewable)

The French Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM) invites
applications for a post-doctoral or research engineer position in the
Cognitive Neuroimaging Group, at the NeuroSpin Research Center near Paris,
France, as part of the research team of Dr. Aaron Schurger. The Schurger
lab focuses on understanding how decisions are made and actions initiated
spontaneously, without an external sensory cue, and how time series of
neural activity can be used to forecast behavior. We pursue this research
using a combination of behavioral experiments, neuroimaging, computational
modeling, time-series analyses, and machine learning techniques.

We are looking for candidates who have prior experience with functional
electrical stimulation (FES) and electroencephalography (EEG), although
applicants with experience in only one or the other may also be considered.
Experience with magnetoencephalography (MEG) is also desirable. Applicants
should have a obtained a PhD in a relevant discipline prior to the starting

Essential skills / background:

FES and/or EEG (preferably both)
computer programming (MatLab and/or Python)
signal processing

Resources available at NeuroSpin include Siemens 3T and 7T MRI scanners;
high-density EEG (EGI Inc.); Elekta NeuroMag 306-channel MEG (allowing for
the simultaneous recording of EEG); eye tracking (available for MRI, MEG,
and behavioral experiments); an in-house team of experts in signal
processing and statistical learning; a dedicated staff handling subject
recruitment, scheduling, and payment; various Nespresso devices; and
proximity to Paris.

Applicants should send a CV, letter of motivation (max 2 pages), and a list
of three references via e-mail to schurgerlab at gmail.com. Review of
applicants will begin on the 15th of May 2017, and will continue until the
position is filled.

The NeuroSpin Research Center is located on the campus of the CEA-Saclay,
near Orsay, about 18 km southwest of Paris. For more information on the
NeuroSpin Research Center and the Cognitive Neuroimaging Group:
