Post-doctoral position in Multisensory integration/EEG -- This job is no longer available

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 position is covered by a European Research Council grant on Multisensory Integration and Attention.


The project addresses the interplay between multisensory integration processes and attention mechanisms. This research spans several functions (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 experience who leads a research line focused on brain oscillatory dynamics. Involvement in some organizational and management aspects is expected. The candidate must (1) have solid demonstrable experience (i.e., publications) in the field of oscillatory analysis using EEG and/or MEG, (2) strong background in cognitive neuroscience, neuroscience, and/or cognitive psychology, and (3) scientific motivation about multisensory integration, perception and attention.


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 and renewable on yearly basis for up to three years.  


Starting date: Feb 2013 or before.

Salary:up to 36,000Eur/Year
