The Department of Psychology at the Université de Paris, La Sorbonne, is seeking to appoint a postdoctoral fellow on a project funded by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR), in the research team of Dr. Teresa Iuculano < >. 

The main goal of the project is to assess the contribution of adverse environmental factors to mathematical learning during the early stages of formal schooling. To this purpose, the successful candidate will combine brain imaging methods (i.e., fMRI, MRI, DTI) with cognitive models in the areas of learning, cognitive training, emotion regulation, memory, decision-making, and numerical cognition. The ideal candidate should have a strong research background and an excellent track-record to contribute to the experimental development of behavioral, cognitive and neuroimaging measures in developmental populations, as well as their implementation and evaluation. 

Candidates must have a PhD and research experience in cognitive neuroscience, experimental/developmental/cognitive psychology, cognitive science, computational neuroscience, educational neuroscience, or related fields. Candidates should have substantial experience in quantitative research methods, strong computational skills and expertise with neuroimaging data acquisition and analysis. Fluent level of French and English is required. Prior experience in programming languages, such as MATLAB or Python is also required. 

The successful candidate will join a vibrant scientific and academic environment at a prestigious Institution in the heart of Paris, France. Both the Sorbonne, as well as neighboring facilities at Collège de France offer regular seminars, lectures and workshops with distinguished national and international speakers. Available neuroimaging facilities include a 3T MRI (exclusively devoted to research), EEG and NIRS equipment(s). Opportunities for professional development also abound as the Laboratory is affiliated with the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), France. 

Applicants should submit a single pdf, including: (a) cover letter, (b) curriculum vitae, (c) representative publications, and (d) list of 3 referees (including contact information) to, quoting “Postdoctoral position in developmental cognitive neuroscience” in the subject-line. 

Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until a candidate is selected.
