ESCOP
Applications are invited for a 2-year full-time post-doctoral position in cognitive neuroscience at the Basque Center on Brain Cognition and Language (BCBL) in San Sebastian (Spain). Applicants should have strong interests in consciousness and cognitive neurosciences coupled with strong computational skills in Python. The main project will use functional MRI to assess the neural correlates of the encoding/maintenance of semantic representations and the learning of new categories and statistical regularities across distinct states of attention and conscious awareness. Experience with state of the art machine learning classification approaches and toolboxes (e.g. PyMVPA, Nilearn, Scikit-learn) is a requirement. Additional expertise in dynamic functional connectivity analyses would be a plus.

The BCBL Center (recently awarded the label of excellence Severo Ochoa) promotes a vibrant research environment without substantial teaching obligations. It provides access to the most advanced behavioral and neuroimaging techniques, including 3 Tesla Siemens Prisma scanner, a whole-head MEG system, four ERP labs, a NIRS lab, a baby lab including an eyetracker, two eyetracking labs, and several well-equipped behavioral labs. The BCBL hosts  excellent support staff and research personnel. Details of BCBL faculty research interests and research facilities can be found at http://ift.tt/21UUyx0. Informal inquiries about the post can be directed to David Soto.

Selection of candidates and interviews will be ongoing until August 15st, 2017. Please submit your application as soon as possible.
