** Apologies for possible multiple postings **

We seek a highly motivated full-time postdoc in the context of a European collaborative project (FLAG-ERA JTC 2017 associated to the Human Brain Project; https://www.flagera.eu/flag-era-calls/jtc-2017/projects/) called: "MAC-Brain - Developing a Multi-scale account of Attentional Control as the constraining interface between vision and action: A cross-species investigation of relevant neural circuits in the human and macaque Brain". The present position will be mainly based in the lab of Nico Boehler at Ghent University, Belgium, but a strong collaboration, possibly including research stays, is planned with the other principal investigators of the project (Leonardo Chelazzi, University of Verona, Italy; Suliann Ben Hamed, CNRS, Lyon, France; Emiliano Macaluso, INSERM, Lyon, France).

The topic of the project revolves around the interaction of various attentional control signals (cueing, statistical learning, value etc.), as well as their downstream integration with motor processes. Across the different partners, this topic will be investigated at different levels (ranging from cell recordings over EEG to fMRI) in different species (humans and non-human primates) with a strong focus on integrating information across these different levels. The present position will focus on EEG measures with possible extensions to TMS-EEG and/or eyetracking in human participants.

The duration of the position is between 2.5 and 3 years. The planned starting date is January 2019, but slight variations are possible. Experience with EEG (or MEG) and a background in attentional control or related topics is expected, experience with TMS or eyetracking would be an asset.

For applying, please send a CV (including two email addresses of referees) and a motivation letter to Nico Boehler (nico.boehler at ugent.be<mailto:nico.boehler at ugent.be>), whom you can also contact for further information on the project or details about the position. The deadline for applications is October 15, 2018.?
