Three postdoc positions are available at the Integrative Neuroscience and
Cognition Center <https://incc-paris.fr/> in Paris (CNRS and Université
Paris Cité). The positions involve mainly human psychophysics, with
possible forays into human and animal physiology and modeling. All three
positions are available immediately, and will remain open until filled. The
three projects concern the following questions:

- To what extent do static images mask fast saccade-like motion and blur?
What is the relationship between masking and saccadic suppression, and can
saccadic suppression be explained by static pre- and post-saccadic scenes?
This project will be under the supervision of Mark Wexler, in collaboration
with teams studying the same stimuli using optical imaging in primates and
electrophysiology in mice, and another team working on neural models of
these processes (2-year postdoc).

- How do we integrate sensory information over brief time windows? Are
temporal integration windows aligned in time to eye movements and blinks,
and can they move through space? Does retroperception arise from
integration over temporal windows? How can we explain the very different
estimates of the duration of integration windows? This project will be
under the supervision of Claire Sergent and Mark Wexler, in collaboration
with Pascal Mamassian (2-year postdoc).

- How does the perception of the current stimulus depend on past stimuli?
Is serial dependence a perceptual or a cognitive phenomenon? What can
explain individual differences in serial dependence, and how can these
differences help us to answer fundamental questions about it? Is serial
dependence helpful or harmful to practical tasks involving repetitive
perceptual judgments? This project will be under the supervision of Thérèse
Collins and Mark Wexler (18-month postdoc).

The INCC, a CNRS research institute located in the center of Paris, is a
large and diverse group of neuroscientists and psychologists, an active
part of a vibrant intellectual community in Paris and the surrounding
