Subject: 2.5-3 year postdoc position on attentional control and visuomotor
integration using EEG

** Apologies for possible multiple postings **

We seek a highly motivated full-time postdoc in the context of a European
collaborative project (FLAG-ERA JTC 2017 associated to the Human Brain
Project; https://www.flagera.eu/flag-era-calls/jtc-2017/projects/) called:
“MAC-Brain - Developing a Multi-scale account of Attentional Control as the
constraining interface between vision and action: A cross-species
investigation of relevant neural circuits in the human and macaque Brain”.
The present position will be mainly based in the lab of Nico Boehler at
Ghent University, Belgium, but a strong collaboration, possibly including
research stays, is planned with the other principal investigators of the
project (Leonardo Chelazzi, University of Verona, Italy; Suliann Ben Hamed,
CNRS, Lyon, France; Emiliano Macaluso, INSERM, Lyon, France).

The topic of the project revolves around the interaction of various
attentional control signals (cueing, statistical learning, value etc.), as
well as their downstream integration with motor processes. Across the
different partners, this topic will be investigated at different levels
(ranging from cell recordings over EEG to fMRI) in different species
(humans and non-human primates) with a strong focus on integrating
information across these different levels. The present position will focus
on EEG measures with possible extensions to TMS-EEG and/or eyetracking in
human participants.

The duration of the position is between 2.5 and 3 years. The planned
starting date is January 2019, but slight variations are possible. Experience
with EEG (or MEG) and a background in attentional control or related topics
is expected, experience with TMS or eyetracking would be an asset.

For applying, please send a CV (including two email addresses of referees)
and a motivation letter to Nico Boehler (nico.boehler at ugent.be), whom you
can also contact for further information on the project or details about
the position. The deadline for applications is October 15, 2018.
