Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position to study social decision making using fMRI in healthy subjects. Our research group combines multimodal neuroimaging with computational modelling to characterize the neural mechanisms underlying human social decision making. The focus of the project will be to unravel the neurocomputational mechanisms underlying various processes engaged in social/moral decision making. Candidates must have (or nearing completion of) a PhD degree in neuroscience, social psychology, behavioral economics, computational neuroscience or a related discipline. 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, TEP, TMS/tDCS and other useful resources (https://dreherteam.wixsite.com/neuroeconomics). This job is available in 2022 for 2 years initially, and for up to 3 years. Salary will be commensurate with experience and qualifications according to CNRS scales.
Candidates should send their CV, statement of research interests, representative publications, and contact information of two references to Jean-Claude Dreher, email:
