Postdoc Position in Lyon (Cognitive or Computational Neuroscience)

Institution: Lyon Neuroscience Research Center (CRNL)

Location: Lyon, France

Application Due: 02/15/2019

Type: Full-Time

Duration: 2,5 years

Applications are invited for a highly motivated, enthusiastic postdoctoral researcher with a PhD in cognitive neuroscience (or related field) to join a well-supported, friendly research team, based in the internationally renowned Center for Research in Neuroscience in Lyon (University of Lyon, CRNS, INSERM). The postdoctoral position is part of a research project named REWIRING that is funded by IDEXLYON Fellowship. The postdoc will be embedded in the IDEXLYON team (PI: Dezso Nemeth) at CRNL, Lyon.

Using methods of M/EEG, fMRI and non-invasive brain stimulation (e.g., TMS), the project aims to investigate how memory representations can be updated ('rewired') in the human brain. More specifically, we will investigate the entire process of how statistical and sequential regularities are extracted from the environment (memory formation), how the extracted knowledge is consolidated and how it can be rewired. For more details see the publications of Dezso Nemeth and Karolina Janacsek at http://nemethlab.com/publications/, and particularly the following paper: Szegedi-Hallgató, E., Janacsek, K., Vékony, T., Tasi, L. A., Kerepes, L., Hompoth, E. A., ... & Németh, D. (2017). Explicit instructions and consolidation promote rewiring of automatic behaviors in the human mind.? Scientific Reports,?7(1), 4365.

The overall aim of Project REWIRING is to improve human learning and memory performance and boost rewiring of automatic behaviors.

Within this project, the post-holder will be responsible for designing and carrying out experiments, analyzing data, and writing up manuscripts. Additionally, the postdoc will be closely involved in daily supervision of PhD and MSc students who work on the project.
