N° 1 Postdoc position in Psychology/Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience
available at the University of Padova, Department of Developmental and
Social Psychology and Padova Neuroscience Center

The CoLab (Area: Social and Affective Neuroscience, PI: Paola Sessa, see
here) invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral researcher position
funded by the Padova Neuroscience Center (http://pnc.unipd.it
to begin in January 2020. We are seeking for an enthusiastic and
highly motivated
postdoctoral researcher to join the group led by Dr. Sessa who is embarking
on a new line of research in collaboration with Dr. Nao Tsuchiya (Monash
University) and Dr. Samir Suweis (University of Padova) on the relationship
between network connectivity and conscious processing of others’ emotions,
with an additional focus on alexithymic traits. The postdoctoral researcher
will be responsible for conducting research with a high density EEG system
(256 channels) within this new line of research.

Qualifications/Requirements: Qualified applicants must have a PhD (or be in
the process of completing their PhD) in neuroscience (affective or
cognitive), psychology, bioengineering or related disciplines. They must
have a solid expertise in conducting EEG studies and a publication record
of research papers that includes neuroimaging studies. The ideal candidate
should also have strong technical skills, including competence in task
implementation, pre-processing, and analysis of EEG data (involving
functional connectivity and graph analysis). Experience working with
sub-clinical/clinical populations (individuals with alexithymia or
alexithymic traits) is preferred but not a prerequisite.

Starting date, duration and salary: This is a two-year position and
expected to start in January 2020; 24.400 euros/gross per year.
