Dear all,
Please find below the description of an open postdoc position.
Do not hesitate to contact me should you require additional information.
Best,
Jean.


**** Postdoctoral position in computational cognitive neuroscience ****

This position is available at the Brain and Spine Institute (Paris, France)
<http://icm-institute.org/en/>, in the Motivation, Brain & Behaviour team
<https://sites.google.com/site/motivationbrainbehavior/>, under the
direction of Dr. Jean Daunizeau.
The position will follow standard French salaries at INSERM.
Expected starting date: Fall 2017.

*Computational cognitive neuroscience* uses mathematical modelling as a
tool to understanding how mental processes (e.g., perception, memory,
attention, emotion, etc...) are controlled by brain circuits. Its breadth
typically ranges from biological models of neural network activity to
cognitive models of brain information processing, to machine learning
approaches to neuroscience data.
In line with this approach, the Motivation, Brain & Behaviour group
addresses the issue of identifying the* neural bases of motivation in
health and disease* with a strong multi-disciplinary focus. The successful
candidate will team with students with very diverse academic backgrounds
(from neurology, psychiatry, biology and psychology, to philosophy, to
economics and mathematics). S/he will be expected to contribute to all
aspects of the research, including computational modelling, as well as data
collection and analysis. A non-exhaustive list of possible projects is
provided here: https://sites.google.com/site/jeandaunizeauswebsite/students.

Required skills:

   - *[Mandatory]* Ph.D. either in Cognitive Neuroscience or in Engineering
   (or related fields)
   - *[Mandatory]* Autonomy in programming in MATLAB, Python or C
   - *[Desired]* Experience in computational models of neural and/or
   cognitive processes
   - Fluency and solid writing skills in English are expected. French is
   not a requirement.

Please apply to jean.daunizeau at gmail.com with a recent CV, a brief (1 page)
summary of your previous research and a letter of motivation.
