We are seeking a highly motivated candidate to start a PhD on the neural correlates of perceptual consciousness and metacognition.

Contract Period : 36months
Expected date of employment : 1 October 2019
Remuneration : 2135€/month (gross)
Desired level of education : Master
The selected candidate will develop experimental paradigms, collect behavioral and electrophysiological data, analyze and interpret data, and draft manuscripts in close collaboration with Nathan Faivre and postdocs in the group. The research will involve healthy volunteers as well as individuals with epilepsy and schizophrenia.
Applicants should have skills in computer programming, statistics, and/or signal processing (Matlab, R, or Python).
Applicants should speak basic French, or be willing to learn rapidly in order to interact with participants.
Applicants with a background in engineering, computer science, or physics are also encouraged to apply.
Work context
The work will take place at the Laboratoire de Psychologie et Neurogognition in Grenoble. The laboratory is associated with the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), and offers state of the art platforms for behavioral, EEG, and fMRI experiments. Part of the research will be performed in collaboration with hospitals in Grenoble, Geneva, and Versailles. All expenses related to the project will be covered by the ERC grant.
