The Proaction Laboratory (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 competitive application to a
Portuguese Science Foundation (FCT) independent researcher call. We
particularly encourage applications from women, and from underrepresented
groups in academia.

The applicants should have obtained a PhD, and have an interest in
cognitive neuroscience, vision science and preferably (but not limited to)
object recognition, conceptual processing, and action and perception. We
are particularly interested in motivated and independent Researchers
addressing these topics with strong expertise in behavioral, motion
tracking, neuromodulation, fMRI and/or EEG approaches (in particular
Multivariate EEG decoding, and EEG/fMRI multimodal approaches). Good
programming skills, great communication and mentoring skills, and a great
command of English are a plus.

The applicant and the lab will work on a competitive project to be
submitted. Results from the application are expected to be out in
October/November 2022. The application deadline is around March 3.

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
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 a 256 ch EEG, motion tracking and eyetracking on
site. We also have a science communication office dedicated to the lab.

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 February 15, 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 – we have had in past applications a high
success rate as a lab (in four previous editions, we got several
applications that were offered a position).
