_Post-doctoral position (NEW) available at LPPA, College de France, Paris_

The laboratory of physiology of perception and action at College de
France, Paris (Pr Berthoz laboratory -
http://www.college-de-france.fr/chaires/chaire8/) seek a highly
motivated researcher for working on an international (European
Union-funded) project devoted to the understanding of the perceptual and
motor bases of emotions' expression in humans. A post-doctoral
researcher has already been recruited by LPPA and this announcement
corresponds to a second position which is available for one year and is
renewable for one additional year.
The candidate will interact with other teams within the project
consortium, specialized in cognitive neurosciences, visual perception,
computer graphics, robotics and biological motor control.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in a related field, independent research
skills and a strong interest in inter-disciplinarity. The applicant
should have expertise in at least one of the following fields
(preference will here be given to candidates with a "neurosciences"
background): sensory and motor physiology, biomechanics, neurosciences,
experimental psychology, virtual reality or robotics. Experience in
programming is expected (e.g. Matlab, Visual C++, etc.). While he/she
will be mainly involved in an already existing project, he/she is also
encouraged to develop his own original approach.

The LPPA at College de France provides a stimulating environment for
national and international collaborations as well as interdisciplinary
research. It regularly organizes workshops and seminars in different
research areas. Applicants should submit curriculum vitae, including a
list of publications, and one or two letters of recommendation to be
sent to the address below. The position is available immediately and
applications will be considered until the position is filled.
