Postdoctoral Fellowship “Brain and Intentional Movement Control: an fMRI
study”

Applications are invited for a one-year post-doctoral research fellowship
(funded by the French Ministry of Research), to study brain mechanisms
involved in intentional motor control using fMRI. The candidate will work
in the group investigating the “Neural Substrates of Intentional Movement
Control” (Mireille Bonnard) in the laboratory “Movement and Perception”
(CNRS, University of the Méditerranée, Marseille). This group uses fMRI and
TMS techniques to study the relation between the spatio-temporal
organisation of cerebral activation and the intentional adaptive
capabilities of movement in healthy human subjects.

We have access to an fMRI machine of 3T which is fully available for
research. Please visit the following web site for some more information (in
French only): http://irmfmrs.free.fr/
In addition to the usual movement analysis systems (electrogoniometers,
force transducer, EMG, …), our laboratory is equipped with a TMS system,
triggered by a computer at a predetermined moment of the movement.

We propose a salary of 1830 Euro net monthly for one year with a
possibility to extend the stay for an additional 6 months. The candidate
must be 35 years old at the most on December 31st 2002, having obtained
his/her PhD (in Neuroscience, Psychology, Human Movement Science or a
related numerate discipline) outside France, and presently working outside
of France. Moreover candidates must originate from USA, Canada, Australia,
New-Zeeland, Norway, Switzerland, Russia, Poland, Japan, Korea, Hungary,
Israel, Brazil, The Czech Republic, Mexico or Slovakia. Candidates should
be enthusiastic about brain and motor behaviour, and should have experience
with or be keen to learn the methods used in fMRI (conceiving protocols,
data acquisition and analysis).

The appointment is available from 1st December 2002, for 1 year. Closing
date for applications is 25st October 2002. Applications should include 1)
a curriculum vitae, 2) one letter of reference.

possible. (bonnard@laps.univ-mrs.fr).
