Offres - Opportunités

A postdoctoral fellow position in Neuroscience is immediately available in the DYNAMAP team (lead by Dr Christian Bénar) at the Institut de Neurosciences des Systèmes (https://ins-amu.fr) to work on the ANR-funded VESTISELF Project focused on the vestibular and multisensory contributions to self and own-body perceptions. The DYNAMAP team is housed in the Epileptology Department from Timone Hospital and is part of the research institute of INSERM and Aix-Marseille University, Marseille, France. The project is conducted in collaboration with the Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience (French National Center for Scientific Research, CNRS: https://lnc.univ-amu.fr/en). The fellow, together with a multidisciplinary team, will launch electrophysiological recordings in epileptic patients (SEEG, MEG) and/or in healthy participants (EEG, MEG) to characterize spatiotemporal dynamics of vestibular information processing in the human brain during vestibular stimulation. For example, local field potentials will be analyzed in epileptic patients under various self-motion profiles and various conditions of visuo-vestibular congruency. Other aspects of the project include retrospective analyses of SEEG data in epileptic patients and analysis of the effects of direct electrical brain stimulation in epileptic patients.

A postdoctoral fellow position in Neuroscience is immediately available in Lopez’ team at the Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience (https://lnc.univ-amu.fr/en) to work on the ANR-funded VESTISELF project focused on the vestibular and multisensory contributions to own-body and self perception. The Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience is housed within Aix-Marseille University located on Saint-Charles Campus in Marseille, France, and is part of the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS). The fellow will pursue a project investigating the relations between the vestibular system and the sense of self, using behavioral approaches in large cohorts of patients with dizziness and vertigo (at the European Hospital, Marseille), EEG recordings in patients and healthy participants, and virtual reality. General research questions are: How is the sense of self and own-body representations altered in patients with vestibular disorders? How does the brain processes various sensory signals related to self-location and embodiment?
