The Department of Psychology at the Sorbonne-Paris Cité University in Paris, France, is seeking to fill a postdoctoral position funded by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR). The main goal of the project is to assess the contribution of stressful environments to mathematical learning during critical stages of arithmetical skill acquisition. To this purpose, the successful candidate will combine brain imaging methods with cognitive modeling in the areas of learning, cognitive training, memory, and numerical cognition. The ideal candidate should have a strong research background and an excellent track-record to contribute to the development of behavioral and neuroimaging measures targeted to elementary school children. The post will require one-on-one/classroom testing, behavioral and brain imaging data analyses, preparing manuscripts for publication, presenting results at national and international conferences and the possible supervision of interns and BSc/MSc students. Candidates must have a PhD and research experience in cognitive neuroscience, brain development, cognitive sciences, psychology, educational neuroscience or related fields. Candidates should have substantial experience in quantitative research methods, strong computational skills and expertise with fMRI data analysis. Fluent level of French and English is required. Prior experience on programming languages for data analysis (such as MATLAB or Python) is highly desirable. To apply, please email a – CV, – statement of research interests and relevant background, – list of publications, and – names of three referees to Dr. Teresa Iuculano (), quoting “Postdoctoral position in developmental cognitive neuroscience_ANR” in the email subject. Applications will be examined until the position is filled. Starting date is February/March 2019 (although there is some flexibility around the starting date). A 2-year commitment is preferred. Keywords/Key skills: Brain imaging, Neuroplasticity, Learning, Neuropsychological assessments, Developmental cohorts, MATLAB, Python Funding Agency: Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) Job-email: Requirements – Ph.D. in cognitive neuroscience, experimental/developmental psychology, computational neuroscience, educational neuroscience or related field – French – level B2 or equivalent – English – level B2 or equivalent Benefits The successful candidate will join a vibrant scientific and academic environment at the Sorbonne University, in the heart of Paris. Both the Sorbonne as well as neighboring facilities at the Collège de France offer daily and weekly seminars, lectures and workshops with distinguished national and international speakers.
