We have a postdoc position available at the Auditory Language Group<https://sites.google.com/site/auditorylanguagegroup/home> led by Prof. Giraud at the University of Geneva (Switzerland) to explore the link between predictive coding and cortical oscillations in speech processing. The project reaches beyond one sensory modality to ask a question of broad interest to basic neuroscience, namely, the role of oscillations in information transfer in the brain.
We are looking for a candidate to work on the computational side of the project who would also work closely with the experimental team (EEG, MEG, ECoG). The computational part aims at understanding the role of oscillations through their modeling in physiologically plausible spiking neural networks and would build on previous work from the lab (Hyafil, A., Fontolan, L., Kabdebon, C., Gutkin, B., & Giraud, A.-L. (2015). Speech encoding by coupled cortical theta and gamma oscillations. eLife, 4, 1-23. http://doi.org/10.7554/eLife.06213).
We specially favor computational models built on a strong neurophysiological basis informed by experimental findings.
The team includes researchers with backgrounds in neurophysiology, psychology, physics and engineering and it's part of the Biotech campus<http://www.campusbiotech.ch/en/> and the Geneva NeuroscienceCenter<http://neurocenter.unige.ch/>.
Applicants should send a CV, statement of research interest, and two reference contacts to Anne-Lise.Giraud at unige.ch
Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Start date: january-april 2016. Contract Duration: 2/3 years.
