[visionlist] Postdoctoral position in “Cognitive representations of space through multisensory inputs”
Fabrizio.Leo at iit.it
Fri Apr 28 10:16:45 -05 2017
A 18-months postdoctoral position is available at Istituto Italiano di
Tecnologia, Genoa, Italy, lab of the Robotics, Brain and Cognitive
Science, starting from July 2017.
Recent findings suggest that attentional deficits can be decreased by
properly modulating multisensory sources. However, there is a limited
knowledge as how to perform such modulations in non-isolating contexts
(Söderlund e Jobs, 2016). The candidate will study how environmental
information modulates perception of non-visual inputs when the person
executes non-isolating activities such as speech, understanding or
listening to sound sources or moving in non-familiar spaces. The
candidate will perform a complete study where behavioral variables are
combined with neurophysiological correlates (EEG). The results of this
research will be applicable in the field of assistive technologies for
sensory and cognitive impairments and in clinical setups.
The research will be carried out in collaboration with a team of
engineers, psychologists and experts in the field of sensory disabilities.
*The ideal candidate should hold a Ph.D. Degree in Psychology, Cognitive
Science or Neuroscience.*
*He/she should have experience in at least one of the following fields:
Psychophysics, Neurophysiology, Cognitive Neuroscience.*
He/she should also have published in the related field. Experience with
software suites manipulating statistical data (R, SPSS, Matlab, Python)
are a plus.
He/she will be working in a fully equipped laboratory of the “Spatial
Awareness and Multisensory Perception” lab of the Robotics, Brain and
Cognitive Science Research Line.
Interested applicants should submit CV, list of publications, names of 2
referees and a statement of research interest
