Intitulé du poste : Postdoctoral Positions Early Development of Auditory temporal Processing
Type de structure : (1) INSERM lab, Groupe de Recherches sur l'Analyse Multimodale de la Fonction Cérébrale, directed by Prof. Fabrice Wallois
Contexte et mission : Postdoctoral Research position in the neuroscience of rhythm perception in neonates using EEG/fNIRS signal processing in INSERM lab, Groupe de Recherches sur l'Analyse Multimodale de la Fonction Cérébrale, directed by Prof. Fabrice Wallois.
The principal research topic aims to address the neural correlates of auditory rhythm processing in premature neonates. The research will include developing experimental protocols, extracting information and characterizing the neural response by developing complex neural data processing approaches, and addressing the role of early development in rhythm coding and perception. The neural signals to be analyzed consist of (but are not limited to) high resolution EEG and high density fNIRS. The research includes also participation in data recording, although this task is mainly conducted by research technicians at the lab. Publications of high quality are expected contributing to novel analytical approaches as well as to basic questions about the underlying neural mechanisms of rhythm perception and auditory development.
Lieu : INSERM U1105 (University of Picardie Jules Verne) Amiens, France
Rémunération : Salary: about €4000 brut/month. Starting date: September, 2022 Contract duration: 1 year, renewable for a total of up to 3 years. Employment level: 100% Application
Diplômes requis : The candidate must have completed a PhD in neuroscience, biomedical engineering, computer science, or related fields with a strong publication record, and must have a very strong background in neural signal processing. Advanced technical skills with scripting languages such as Matlab or Python as well as research experience in EEG signal processing and modeling, and machine learning are required.
Compétences requises : Experience with neural signals such as magnetoencephalography, and fNIRS will be considered as an advantage. Knowledge in the field of neuroscience of music and/or auditory perception is required. Applicant should have high verbal and written communication skills and the ability to work effectively both independently and in collaboration with other investigators.
