A post-doctorate positions is available immediately in the group of Dr. Arnaud Norena (email@example.com) at Laboratory of Integrative and Adaptive Neuroscience, CNRS-Aix-Marseille University, Marseille, France.
Our group is studying the auditory perception, the neural correlates of auditory perception 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 salary will be competitive.
We are looking for a highly motivated candidates to be involved in a project aimed at investigating the cortical plasticity triggered by cochlear hearing loss (and potentially associated to tinnitus – “the auditory phantom perception”) from multi-unit cortical recordings. In particular, we are interested in the neural coding of intensity level (from information theory point of view) in presence or absence of hearing loss. and in the mlecular mechanisms of central inhibition.
We are looking for a candidate with experience in: · central electrophysiology with arrays of micro-electrodes
· and/or strong background in neurophysiology, signal processing, information theory and computational neuroscience
· programming skills in Matlab and/or Python are also highly desirable
