Center for Cognitive Neurocience, Lyon, France.

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position to study social 
decision making using model-based fMRI in healthy subjects and 
intracranial recordings in patients with epilepsy. Our research group 
combines multimodal neuroimaging with computational modelling to 
characterize the neural mechanisms underlying human social decision 
making. The focus of the project will be to unravel the neural 
correlates of social decision making using probabilistic representations 
of other’s intentions. We will use such approach to model ways in which 
we predict hypothetical action outcomes, the intentions of others and 
whether the other is cooperative or competitive. This will be 
implemented by parallel models and experiments using multimodal 
intracranial recordings and fMRI in humans to exploit maximally the 
experimental advantages of each technic. Candidates must have (or 
nearing completion of) a PhD degree in neuroscience, social psychology, 
behavioral economics, computational neuroscience or a related 
discipline. Candidates must have previous practical experience and 
working knowledge of human neuroimaging (EEG and/or model-based fMRI). 
The candidate must also have working knowledge of experimental 
statistics, signal processing and excellent programming skills in 
Matlab. Previous experience in simultaneous EEG/fMRI experiments, 
advanced multivariate data analysis and computational modelling is 
desirable but not required. The institute of Cognitive Science is 
located in Lyon, France, a thriving universitary city. The institute 
hosts an interdisciplinary neuroscience community with access to several 
brain imaging facilities, such as one research-dedicated 3T scanner, 
MEG, TEP, intracranial EEG in patients with epilepsy and other useful 
resources (http://dreherteam.cnc.isc.cnrs.fr/en/). This post is 
available immediatly, for up to three years. Salary will be commensurate 
with experience and qualifications according to CNRS scales. Candidates 
should send their CV, statement of research interests, representative 
publications, and contact information of two referencesto Jean-Claude
