Two 3-year post-doc positions Amiens/Dijon, France: neurodevelopment and rhythm processing
/Two 3-year post-doc positions Amiens/Dijon, France: //neurodevelopment
and rhythm processing /
Two 3-year post-doc positions are available within the research project
/PreMusic/, funded by the French National Research Agency ANR. This
project aims is to evaluate the impact of early musical interventions in
the NICU on preterm infants’ development, starting from 28 weeks
gestational age up until 18 months. In this longitudinal study, we will
evaluate the development of auditory rhythm processing capacities with
EEG and behavioral tasks and other aspects of cognitive development. The
project consortium involves four academic partners with complementary
expertise in early neurodevelopment, neural data processing (in
particular EEG), cognitive neurosciences of music and music analysis.
The positions will be with Sahar Moghimi in Amiens (INSERM U1105) and
with Barbara Tillmann in Dijon (LEAD-UMR5022), starting around March
2022, and both will be in collaboration with Laurel Trainor (McMaster
University, Canada). The post-docs will work together and in
collaboration with the other consortium members.
_1) Amiens (https://gramfc.u-picardie.fr/) ___
The post-doc will be fully dedicated to extracting the EEG correlates of
rhythm processing in the course of development, aiming to evaluate the
impact of musical interventions on neurodevelopment.
/Required:/PhD in neuroscience, biomedical engineering, computer
science, or related fields, strong background in neural signal
processing, advanced skills with scripting languages, such as Matlab or
Python, research experience in EEG signal processing/modeling
/Preferable:/knowledge in the field of neurosciences of music and/or
auditory perception, French fluency
2) _Dijon (http://leadserv.u-bourgogne.fr/en) ___
The post-doc will be mainly in charge of the longitudinal testing
program aiming to evaluate the impact of the musical interventions on
the rhythmic, cognitive and social development of the preterm infants.
/Required/: PhD in developmental psychology, cognitive neurosciences or
neuropsychology; research experience in developmental science, strong
motivation for team work; statistical and programming skills
/Preferable/: knowledge in the field of neurosciences of music and/or
auditory perception, prior experience with EEG, French fluency.
All applications should include a CV, a cover letter specifying research
interests and motivation, and contact details for two referees.
Post-doc applications should be sent to either
email@example.com (position in Amiens) or
firstname.lastname@example.org(position in Dijon).
Applications will be evaluated as they come in, and the positions will
be open until filled.
