The Proaction Laboratory (Jorge Almeida's lab; proactionlab.fpce.uc.pt) at
the University Coimbra Portugal is looking for Researchers at different
levels of their career from newly phd graduates, to assistant, associate or
full level researchers to be part of the lab in a joint application to a
Portuguese Science Foundation (FCT) call.

The applicants should have an interest on cognitive neuroscience, vision
science and object recognition. The applicants should also have expertise
in one or some of the techniques used in the lab - e.g., population
Receptive Fields/phase lag analysis; Representational Similarity Analysis,
MVPA, deep learning and other computational neuroscience approaches. Good
programming skills, great communication and mentoring skills, and a great
command of english are a plus.

The positions are as independent researchers in the Proaction Lab, are for
6 years, and the salary is the same as the Portuguese payroll for
University Professors (net values for junior, assistant, associate
positions, for instance are approximately 1500, 1900 and 2100 euros per
month in a 14 month salary per year; these are competitive salaries for the
cost of living in Portugal and especially in Coimbra).

The Proaction Lab is currently very well funded as we have a set of
on-going funded projects including a Starting Grant ERC to Jorge Almeida
(starting in February) and several FCT projects. We have access to a 3T MRI
scanner with a 64-channel coil (with EEG inside
the scanner), to tDCS, and to a fully set psychophysics lab. We have EEG
and eyetracking on site.

Finally, the University of Coimbra is a 700 year old University and has
been selected as a UNESCO world Heritage site. Coimbra is one of the most
lively university cities in the world, and it is a beautiful city with easy
access to the beach and mountain.

The deadline for this pre-application is January 10, but you should apply
as soon as you can - the sooner the better so that we can prepare the
application. If interested send an email to jorgecbalmeida at gmail.com, with
a CV, and motivation/scientific proposal letter. If there is a fit, we will
jointly apply to these positions.
