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 catherine.tallon-baudry@ens.fr. The position is open until filled.
