Post-doctoral position in Cognitive Neuroscience (MRG Group)

Applications are invited for a full-time post-doctoral research position in the MULTISENSORY RESEARCH GROUP, led by Salvador Soto-Faraco, at the Pompeu Fabra University (Barcelona).

The group addresses the behavioral and neural expression of multisensory integration processes and their underlying mechanisms in the brain. This research spans several perceptual domains (speech, temporal and spatial processing, in vision, audition and touch, and body representation) and research approaches (psychophysics, neuroimaging, and brain stimulation with TMS).

We seek a person with solid, demonstrable experience who is able to lead a research line complementary to the group’s activities. Involvement in some organizational and management aspects is expected. The candidate must have (1) a PhD degree at the moment of application or soon thereafter (Sept 2014), (2) a solid demonstrable experience with publications in the field of Cognitive or Computational Neuroscience, and (3) strong motivation for multisensory integration, perception and attention. Please, bear in mind that applications that do not meet these standards will not be considered. Candidates outside the EU are welcome to apply but they might have to clear working visa requirements on their own.

We offer onsite ERP/EEG, TMS, and psychophysical testing facilities, neuronavigation system, a wide range of visual auditory and somatosensory stimulation equipment, and the use of fMRI and MEG recording facilities externally. The position will be funded for up to three years.  

Starting date: Sept 2014 or before.
Salary: Commensurate with experience (up to 47,300Eur/Year gross)

How to apply
Applications should include:

- a full CV
- a short cover letter including a statement of research interests
- the names of three scholars who are willing to serve as references for the applicant
Check out www.mrg.upf.edu for info on the group. For informal enquiries about the position and applications, please contact Salvador Soto-Faraco at applications.MRGLab@gmail.com.
