A postdoctoral position in computational sensorimotor control is
available starting in fall 2006 at the Institute for Cognitive Science,
Lyon, France, to participate in a project investigating Bayesian
mechanisms for sensorimotor integration and motor control. The position
is funded for two years, with generous travel allowance. The project
will be supervised by Pierre Baraduc and Sophie Deneve, and will focus
on internal estimates of eye and arm state during movement in humans,
its update by sensory feedback and its dependence on priors. This
question will be addressed by combining behavioral experiments and
theoretical models. Facilities include Eyelink II and Optotrak tracking
devices integrated in a virtual reality system.
The ideal candidate should have a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline, a
strong background in mathematics, physics, computer science or
engineering, as well as a real interest for neuroscience. Prior
experience in psychophysics and human movement recording is preferred,
but not required. Programming skills in C/C++ and Matlab are essential.
The ISC is one of the leading French centers specialising in integrative
approaches to understanding brain function. It gathers researchers from
neuroscience, psychology, computer science and linguistics and is
located on a campus strong in vision and sensorimotor control.
Information request and applications (including CV, brief summary of
previous research work and research goals, and the names and contact
details of two professional references) should be sent to Pierre
Baraduc, Institute for Cognitive Science, 67 bd Pinel, 69675 Bron,
France, or electronically to pierre.baraduc at isc.cnrs.fr, with Cc to
sophie.deneve at ens.fr.
