We are looking for post-doctoral researchers to work on a 2-year

project on Interoception across domains and dimensions. The aim of the

project is (1) to develop a set of measures of interoceptive abilities

across interoceptive domains (respiratory, gastric

and cardiac) and across interoceptive dimensions (accuracy, sensibility

and awareness), and (2) to study the relationship between interoceptive

abilities measured by these newly developed measures and emotion





The project is funded by the Fund for Scientific Research

(FRS-FNRS) in Belgium. It will be hosted at the Université catholique de

Louvain, Research institute for psychological sciences, under the

supervision of Olivier Luminet. The project will be conducted

in close collaboration with Elke Vlemincx (Queen Mary University of

London) and Ilse Van Diest and Lukas Van Oudenhove (KULeuven).




The starting date is negotiable (between May 1st and September 1st

2018). Candidates should have a PhD in psychology or biomedical sciences

or a PhD in other fields including a strong interest in human

experimental psychology work on interoception.


They need to demonstrate previous expertise in the domain,

including published research in international journals. Fluency in the

French language would be an advantage.




Candidates can send their application folder, including:


- A letter of motivation


- Two reference letters


- A CV
Questions and applications should be sent to Olivier Luminet (Olivier.Luminet@uclouvain.be)
