Professor Francisca Serrano, from the Department of Developmental and Educational Psychology at the University of Granada, welcomes postdoctoral candidates interested in applying for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (MSCA-IF) in this university. Applicants must comply with the Mobility Rule (more information in the participant guide: http://sl.ugr.es/097k).

The Mind, Brain and Behavior Research Center at University of Granada (CIMCYC-UGR) is a centre for psychological excellence research. It is compound of scientists coming from all areas of Psychology motivated by the study of mental and brain functions using a cluster of classical and modern neuroimaging techniques.

We all share the goal of understanding how mental processes and behaviour emerge from normal brain activity, and how behavioral problems are related to the breakdown of brain processes. The CIMCYC is composed by a pleiade of research teams devoted to the study of all aspects of Psychology. Home to the Functional Magnetic Resonance Unit of the University of Granada, the leading neuroimaging tool of Southern Spain, CIMCYC is aimed at improving citizens well-being, seeking to disentangle the ways in which mind, brain and behavior are causally related. Apart from conducting high-standard scientific research, we plan to offer a range of training opportunities to support the development of psychological research both at the regional andalusian level as well as nationally and internationally.

Our research group is called LEE. Lectura y Escritura en Español (Reading and Spelling in Spanish language). We deal with topics related with reading and writing acquisition, development and difficulties, detection, diagnosis and remediation.

The student interested in this research area will be able to get involved in research projects in the framework of literacy acquisition, reading and writing development and difficulties, especially in Spanish language but also taking a cross-linguistic approach. Our research work is focussed on looking for adequate measures for detection and intervention on learning disabilities with particular emphasis on dyslexia and reading and writing disabilities. Late research has focussed in reading fluency, reading comprehension and spelling intervention design and validation. Traditional behavioural studies are now being completed with the more recent focus on the neuroscience of literacy development and disabilities.
