Applications are invited for a 2-year full-time post-doctoral position in
cognitive neuroscience at the Basque Center on Brain Cognition and Language
(BCBL) in San Sebastian (Spain). Applicants should have strong interests in
consciousness and cognitive neurosciences coupled with strong computational
skills in Python. The main project will use functional MRI to assess the
neural correlates of the encoding/maintenance of semantic representations
and the learning of new categories and statistical regularities across
distinct states of attention and conscious awareness. Experience with state
of the art machine learning classification approaches and toolboxes (e.g.
PyMVPA, Nilearn, Scikit-learn) is a requirement. Additional expertise in
dynamic functional connectivity analyses would be a plus.

obligations. It provides access to the most advanced behavioral and
neuroimaging techniques, including 3 Tesla Siemens Prisma scanner, a

labs. The BCBL hosts  excellent support staff and research personnel.
