Several Postdoc positions in mathematical modelling, perceptual
psychophysics, developmental psychology/developmental robotics and
philosophy, are available from September 2013 to work within Kevin
O’Regan’s ERC Advanced project  “FEEL” on the sensorimotor approach to
consciousness (http://lpp.psycho.univ-paris5.fr/feel/). By examining the
laws linking motor output to sensory input, the sensorimotor theory
attempts to account for the perceived quality of sensory experiences (e.g.
the perceived quality of colors, the differences between different sense
modalities, the way an agent -- infant or robot -- can learn the structure
of its body and how to use a tool). K. O’Regan is seeking candidates to
undertake the work planned in each of the five workpackages of the project
(cf. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/869531/ERC-FEEL.pdf): WP1
(Philosophy), WP2 (Formal sensorimotor theory), WP2 (Color psychophysics),
WP4 (Sensory Substitution) and WP5 (Development of feel in infants and
robots). The work is to be conducted at the Laboratoire Psychologie de la
Perception (http://lpp.psycho.univ-paris5.fr) in central Paris. French
language is not a requirement. Appointments will be for one year, renewable
once, starting as soon as possible or until the positions are filled. Net
salary is determined by French university standards and experience. Please
send CV’s and short letters of interest for proposed workpackage and
specifying availability to <erc.feel.hiring at gmail.com> before 1 September
