*PhD position in the Multisensory Research Group (UPF, Barcelona)*

Applications are invited for a full-time pre-doctoral position in the
RESEARCH GROUP <http://www.mrg.upf.edu/> led by Salvador Soto-Faraco, at
the Pompeu Fabra University <http://www.upf.edu/> (Barcelona).

*The position*

We seek excellent and highly motivated candidates with a background in
cognitive neuroscience, psychophysics, or experimental psychology, although
all backgrounds will be considered if they align with the project goals.
The project addresses the relationship between cross-modal fusion
conceptualized from a Bayesian framework (ref 1) and conflict monitoring
(ref 2).  We will value candidates with prior research experience,
especially in these particular areas of interest. This scholarship is
linked to the MICINN project ‘Multisensory Processing and Conflict’, under
the FPI program

1. Körding, Konrad P., et al. Causal inference in multisensory
perception. *PLoS
one* 2.9 (2007): e943.

2. Shenhav, A., et al. The expected value of control: an integrative theory
of anterior cingulate cortex function. *Neuron*, *79*(2), 217-240 (2013).


The position will be funded for three years + optional fourth.  Starting
date: May 2021 (approx.). Salary (before tax):  17,785 euros per year for
each year (19,000 euros if the fourth year is postdoctoral; e.g., in the
event that the thesis is defended in the third year). The physical presence
of the PhD student will be required during the project because the project
is of an empirical nature.


Please, make sure you are eligible.  You must be able to apply to the
Spanish Ministry FPI scholarship program
and be eligible to be admitted to a UPF Doctoral School:

*How to apply*

Please, send an expression of interest (or other enquiries about the
position) to projectes.cbc at upf.edu. Include the following:

- C.V., a cover letter describing research interests, and the contact of
two academic referees. Please also include a sample of your previous work
if any (master’s thesis, and/or other scientific outputs).

Please, mention that you are applying to the MRG PREDOCTORAL position in
the email subject. We will consider candidates until two weeks before the
official 2020 FPI call closes (2020 call to open soon). The official
application will be made through the Spanish Ministry FPI scholarship
