This position is available for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher in Lyon, France, in the Decision, Action, and Neural Computation (DANC) team at the Institute for Cognitives SciencesMarc Jeannerod (ISCMJ) under the direction of James Bonaiuto, PhD. The position is funded for 2 years by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 framework program of the European Union (grant agreement no. 864550)
The project is aimed at determining the functional role beta bursts in motor behavior. The candidate will use cutting edge techniques in high precision magnetoencephalography (MEG), high resolution magnetic resonance imaging (MRI, 3.0 T Siemens scanner), and deep learning techniques for markerless kinematic tracking with healthy human volunteers. The post-doctoral fellow will:
* develop and optimize the analysis of laminar level source signals as well as cortico-cortical functional connectivity applied to oscillatory activities.
* analyze the relationship between movement kinematics and beta burst activity
* synthesize results, write reports and scientific articles.
The postdoctoral fellow will work together with a research assistant whose involvement in MEG/MRI recording will be limited.
Enthusiastic and self-motivated candidates are encouraged to apply.
* Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience, Engineering or related field
* Autonomy in programming in MATLAB and Python
* Experience in using imaging analysis software (MNE, SPM, Fieldtrip, FSL,
* Knowledge of latent factor analyses applied to M/EEG data such as hidden Markov models, particularly in source space
* Knowledge of brain oscillations and signal processing
* Experience with computer vision and analysis of movement kinematics is a plus
* Fluency and solid writing skills in English are expected. French is absolutely not a
The successful candidate will benefit from structured mentoring support and opportunities for travel and presentation at national meetings. The ISCMJ is a multidisciplinary research institute offering a vibrant working atmosphere in an international environment with multiple opportunities for seminars, workshops and methodological clubs.
