Post-doctorate position at the Laboratory of Sensory and Cognitive Neuroscience

Country: France;

City: Marseille

Vacancy added: 12.11.2018

Employer: A*Midex (Aix-Marseille Initiative of Excellence)

Vacancy type: PostDoc vacancy;

 

One post-doctorate position is available immediately and starting January 1st 2019 in the group of Dr. Arnaud Norena at the Laboratory of Sensory and Cognitive Neuroscience, CNRS-Aix-Marseille University, Marseille, France for a period duration of 2 years (the position is funded by AMIDEX, Aix-Marseille Université).

Our group (Neural Dynamics and Audition) is studying the neural correlates of auditory perception, including tinnitus (the auditory percept that is not related to any sound in the environment), and the plasticity of auditory centers due to specific acoustic environment or cochlear hearing loss. We have also a strong interest on computational and theoretical neuroscience (neural coding and system dynamics).

The present project is specifically devoted to investigate the mechanisms of tinnitus and develop a treatment (based on acoustic stimulation) aimed at improving tinnitus in tinnitus patients. Tinnitus is very common in the general population and is a potentially devastating condition. An estimated of 50.8 million EU citizens have tinnitus, of which 5.1 million are severely bothered by it.

We are looking for a highly motivated candidate, fluent in French (since the work will be done in French tinnitus patients), with a background in Neurosciences and/or Audition and/or Psychoacoustic and/or Experimental audiology.

Please send your application including a CV and motivation letter to Arnaud Noreña: arnaud.norena@univ-amu.fr. Also use this email for enquiries of further information to the position. Website for further information on the laboratory and team: http://lnsc.fr/
