Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Movement Science, Psychology or Neuroscience.
The University of Montpellier I (France) is seeking applicants for a post doctoral fellowship to work on a research project investigating social motor coordination in mental illness and robot design. The pluridisciplinary project based on a Agence Nationale De La Recherche grant is in collaboration with researchers at the University Montpellier, University of the Mediterranean, University-Hospital of Montpellier (partners in south of France) and the College of the Holy Cross (partner in the USA). The postdoctoral fellow will be involved in experiments investigating interpersonal limb and postural coordination in healthy and in mentally ill patients (schizophrenics and social phobics) as well as motor coordination between humans and robots. The planned experiments will also investigate the perceptual constraints on social coordination using eye trackers as well as its concomitant brain mechanisms using neuroimagery methods.
Applicants who have earned a Ph.D. in Movement Science, Psychology or Neuroscience should have a background in experimental methods and time-series analyses as well as an expertise in Matlab programming. Familiarity with quantitative modeling techniques and nonlinear dynamic time series analyses is also desirable. The 12 months position, which is renewable once, will begin in September/October 2010.
