We welcome expressions of interest for the Postdoctoral Junior Leader fellowships programme projects in the Multisensory Research Group, at the Center for Brain and Cognition (CBC), Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona.
The Postdoctoral Junior Leader is a fellowship programme (deadline Oct 7th, 2020) from La Caixa, aimed at hiring excellent researchers, of any nationality, who wish to continue their research career in Excellent Research Centers in Spain and Portugal. They seek to support the best scientific talent by providing them with an attractive, competitive environment in which to conduct excellent research.
The Multisensory Research Group projects address basic as well as more real-life oriented questions in the Cognitive Neuroscience field. The particular focus is on the behavioural and neural mechanisms that underlie perception, attention and memory processes across several sensory domains in humans. We make use of behavioural and brain imaging techniques, including EEG and TMS.
We seek highly motivated researchers with min 2 to max 7 years post-doctoral experience prior to deadline. The candidate should be interested in the oscillatory dynamics of neural activity that can anticipate or predict the outcome of cognitive and perceptual processes. Experience in EEG or signal processing of physiological signals is necessary. Skills or a background in Brain Computer Interfaces, real-time EEG analysis, and trial-to-trial offline analysis will be valued. The candidate is expected to make original contributions along these lines, mounting on previous group findings and expertise. See related publications below.
The Junior Leader Fellowships offer a 3 year full-time contract with a 42K€/year gross salary, research costs of 38K€/year, and mobility allowance if applicable (up to 5.4K€). Please, take a look at the full program description for more information: https://fundacionlacaixa.org/en/investigacion-y-becas/becas-de-la-caixa/....
If you are interested in applying with the Multisensory Research Group, send an expression of interest with a CV and a short motivation letter, including the names of two academic referees to firstname.lastname@example.org. Specify “Junior Leader MRG” in the subject of the message. Please contact before October 1st, 2020.
IMPORTANT: Check that you fulfill all the eligibility criteria (experience and mobility) in any of the two subprograms (incoming, retaining). To direct enquiries about the application process itself, or any other questions about the fellowship you can email the funding agency at email@example.com
