Postdoctoral Position, The Institute of Cognitive Science Marc Jeannerod (ISCMJ)

Feb 27, 2023 | Job Postings, Postdoctoral Students

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position to study social decision making. Our research group combines multimodal neuroimaging with computational modelling to characterize the neural mechanisms underlying human social decision making. The focus of this project will be to unravel the neurocomputational mechanisms engaged when transmitting information in social networks. Candidates must have (or nearing completion of) a PhD degree in neuroscience, social psychology, behavioral economics, computational neuroscience or a related discipline.


Candidates should send their CV, statement of research interests, representative publications to Jean-Claude Dreher, email:

Candidates must have previous practical experience and working knowledge of human neuroimaging (eg. model-based fMRI). The candidate must also have working knowledge of experimental statistics, signal processing and excellent programming skills in Matlab. Previous experience in model-based fMRI experiments, advanced multivariate data analysis and computational modelling is desirable.

The Institute of Cognitive Science Marc Jeannerod (ISCMJ) is located in Lyon, France, a thriving university city. The institute hosts an interdisciplinary neuroscience community with access to several brain imaging facilities, such as one research-dedicated 3T scanner, MEG/EEG, simultaneous PET-fMRI, TMS/tDCS and other useful resources. This job is available in Spring 2023 for 1 year (initially). Salary will be commensurate with experience and qualifications according to CNRS scales.
