Applications are invited for a postdoc position supervised by Ghislaine Dehaene-Lambertz to work on consciousness in infants using EEG. The team is part of INSERM’s ‘Cognitive Neuroimaging Unit' (, director : Stanislas Dehaene) at NeuroSpin (director : Denis LeBihan) in the greater Paris region. NeuroSpin is a newly opened outstanding interdisciplinary research environment that houses several research laboratories and combines expertise in cognitive neuroscience and neuropsychology, magneto-electrophysiology, high field MR imaging and imaging data analysis.

The project is part of an European community project to study consciousness in adults, monkeys, infants and comatose patients. The postdoc will program and analyse EEG experiments (subliminal presentation, stimulus collision, etc..) in infants and discuss the results with the other teams involved. Applicants should have a PhD degree in Neuroscience, Medicine, Psychology, or related areas.

Prior experience with skills in EEG/MEG analysis is necessary. Salary will be commensurate with experience within the salary scale of the French public research organisations (~2100 euros per month). The position is funded for one to five years, and should be started during autumn 2010. Applications will be considered until the position is filled.

For further information or to submit an application (including the names of two referees) please contact Ghislaine Dehaene-Lambertz, email:
