Hi all,

I’m looking for a motivated postdoc to join my recently installed Enactive Brain Lab and to work on the neural basis of the temporal structure of naturalistic gaze behaviour. The project draws upon some ideas from predictive processing/predictive coding and might have implications for theories about conscious visual perception.

The perfect candidate has experience with collecting and analysing MEG or EEG data in combination with eye-tracking (aka MEG/EEG and eye-tracking coregistration), in gaze-contingent experimental designs. However, if your experience so far extends across only one of these three methods (MEG, EEG, eye-tracking) and you are eager to learn, you are very much welcome to apply! A good command of advanced frequentist and Bayesian statistics (multilevel/mixed modelling) as well as decoding methods will be a strong plus. The preferred programming language for this project is Python but experience with Matlab or R will also be recognised.

The position is for 1+1 years with a preferred starting date before Dec 19, 2023. A later start would be possible for very good reasons.

The Centre for Mind/Brain Research (CIMeC) at the University of Trento is a fantastic research environment, recently ranked as the leading institution for Cognitive Neuroscience in Italy. It has state-of-the art imaging facilities (a 306-channel Elekta MEG system, a 3T Siemens Trio fMRI scanner, several EEG systems, all integrated with Eyelink eye-trackers and set up for coregistration). Large parts of the centre are located in Rovereto, a smaller town easy to reach from Trento by train (15 min). The official language at the centre is English.

Moreover, the Trentino region offers a very high quality of life. It is the perfect surrounding for nature-loving people (Dolomites, Lake Garda, etc.), the weather is beautiful, and the food is delicious.
