Your main tasks are to recruit participants and run experiments probing the link between cognition and interoception, contribute to process data (electroencephalogram, respiration, electrocardiogram, electrogastrogram, ...), document experimental procedures and data analysis pipeline. You will also participate in scientific discussions at the weekly group meeting, bi-monthly lab meeting and monthly department colloquium.

Some prior experience with human electrophysiology, and/or some prior experience with programming, would be a bonus.
