Two postdoctoral positions to study visual attention through brain-computer interfaces are available at the Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS Paris, France).
We are seeking a highly motivated person with a strong background in vision neuroscience and EEG.

The project aims at using real-time decoding of EEG data to uncover the neural mechanisms of attention during perceptual decision making.

Candidates should have at least a PhD degree in the domain of cognitive science, neuroscience, physicist or engineering, and a solid training in vision science and quantitative analysis of neurophysiological data. Good command of programming tools including Matlab and/or Python scripting are required. Knowledge and experience with machine learning is also desirable but not prerequisites.

The project will be coordinated by Pr. Sid Kouider (for more information on lab and research visit:
