Post-doctoral position, Paris: neural monitoring of visceral inputs and emotions

      A post-doctoral position is open to study the link between emotions and the neural monitoring of visceral inputs. This project is part of a broader ERC project testing thehypothesis that the neural monitoring of visceral inputs (heart, stomach) generates a subject-centered reference frame, from which first-person perspective can develop, in perception, cognition and emotion.

    Motivated candidates with an excellent academic record in affective neuroscience and good programming abilities are welcome to apply. Knowledge of, and/or experience with, brain imaging and physiological recordings would be a strong plus. The position is initially funded for two years, beginning in January 2018 (flexible). The successful candidate will benefit from the interdisciplinary environment and computing resources of the Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory, Department of Cognitive Science at Ecole Normale Supérieure in central Paris, as well as from the state-of-the-art neuroimaging facility (MEG, fMRI, TMS, intracranial EEG) at nearby Hôpital Pitié-Salpêtrière.

    Informal enquiries and formal applications (CV, motivation letter and contact details of at least 2 references) should be sent to The position is open until filled.

Job description

Faculty Position at UCLA, Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior

The Semel Institute and the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA are seeking a tenure track faculty member at the Assistant or Associate Professor rank to assume a leadership role in a program of cognitive neuroscience on nonhuman primates in the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience of the Institute. The candidate should be proficient in the creative use of methods of primate behavioral neurophysiology and should have a record of accomplishment using those methods, with evidence of the ability to attract public or private research support. Given the interdisciplinary nature of progress in cognitive neuroscience, and given the rich interdisciplinary environment of UCLA, it is expected that the candidate will be conversant with the latest advances in allied fields and ready to collaborate with colleagues in those fields. The candidate will be expected to participate creatively in interdepartmental teaching programs on cognitive neuroscience.
