Many Doctoral and Pre-Doctoral 5 year positions available under an ERC Starting Grant on the organization of object knowledge
The Proaction lab is looking for motivated and bright doctoral and pre-doctoral researchers to work on a prestigious ERC Starting Grant project (ContentMAP) on the neural organization of object knowledge. In this project we will explore how complex information is topographically organized in the brain using fMRI and state of the art analytical techniques, as well as computational approaches, and neuromodulation. Experience with fMRI and data analysis is required. Strong programming skills (matlab, python, etc.) are also a requirement. Experience with data analysis techniques used in vision and object recognition (e.g., Representational Similarity Analysis, MVPA, Machine Learning, population Receptive Fields/phase lag analysis), as well as computational approaches to cognitive neuroscience (e.g., SOM) is a plus. Very good English (oral and written) communicative skills are necessary.
The deadline for the application is the 20th of November 2018
Please send an email with the subject “Post-doc position under ERC - ContentMAP” with your curriculum vitae, list of publications, 2 reference letters, and a short description of your experience in the field and how you fulfill the requirements (fit with the position) to: jorgealmeida@fpce.uc.pt.
