Missions

This Post-doctorate is funded by the ERC contract “POP-R: parallel orthographic processing and reading” (PI: Jonathan Grainger) and the ANR contract “Chunked: implicit and explicit segmentation process” (co-PI: Arnaud Rey).

Activities

The candidate will work in the field of comparative psychology (human / non-human primates) and more particularly on the cognitive processes at the heart of these two research projects (spelling and chunking processes). The post-doc will work in close collaboration with Joël Fagot at the CNRS primatology center in Rousset-sur-Arc and will have access to the unique experimental platform for the study of primate cognition and behavior, where a group of baboons has free and permanent access to the automated experimentation systems described in Fagot and Bonté (2010; see also Grainger et al., 2012; Rey et al., 2018).
