[visionlist] Assistant/associate job opening with tenure in perception/cognition

The Laboratoire Psychologie de la Perception (LPP) associated with Université Paris Descartes and the National Center of Scientific Research (CNRS) will be inviting applications for a full-time appointment at the assistant/associate professor level with lifetime tenure (maître de conferences). The expected employment date is September 1, 2016.

Candidates must have a PhD or equivalent and a demonstrated ability to pursue an independent research program. Applications are open mainly to candidates working in the fields covered by the research in our lab, namely perception (mostly vision), perception-and-action, and language (please consult our website at http://ift.tt/XiQzis) but other related fields may be considered. Within these fields candidates’ research can address perceptual and cognitive processes in adults and/or infants/children, in either typical or atypical subjects. The methods used may include behavior and psychophysics, imagery, and/or EEG, as well as computational and modeling techniques. 

The successful candidate will participate in teaching at both the master (Master en sciences cognitives, Master biologie cellulaire, physiologie et pathologie) and undergraduate (BSc in biomedical sciences), including courses covering general cognitive processes in adults and/or infants, an introduction to their basic neurophysiological substrates, as well as methodology (statistics, programming, etc.). A mastery of French sufficient for teaching is obligatory.

Our laboratory is situated in the medical school of the Université Paris Descartes, in the center of Paris. Salary depends on professional experience, and includes generous social benefits.

Applicant Instructions:

Interested applicants should submit a letter of interest (including a statement of research interests and evidence of excellence in teaching), a current CV, representative publications, and the names of at least three scholars familiar with their research and/or teaching. At this initial, informal stage this information is for the members of the LPP. Other documents will be required for the official application.

More details on the official submission process will be available once the opening is officially published, which will be in late December 2015 or early January 2016 and will be closed by the end of February. The reason for the present early announcement is that the candidate must first obtain a French “Qualification aux fonctions de maître de conférences” for university teaching. The deadline for this separate application will be October 22, 2015. Details (in French) can be found here:

The university commission may waive this preselection process for some outstanding candidates. However, this decision typically occurs only in early March so that candidates having applied without a qualification take the risk of being disqualified before the beginning of the selection process proper.

Questions should be addressed to Mark Wexler: mark.wexler.job2016@gmail.com
