[visionlist] Postdoctoral position in “Cognitive representations of space through multisensory inputs4oCd

A 18-months postdoctoral position is available at
Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Genoa, Italy, lab of the
Robotics, Brain and Cognitive Science, starting from July 2017.

Recent findings suggest that attentional deficits can be
decreased by properly modulating multisensory sources. However,
there is a limited knowledge as how to perform such modulations in
non-isolating contexts (Söderlund e Jobs, 2016). The candidate
will study how environmental information modulates perception of
non-visual inputs when the person executes non-isolating
activities such as speech, understanding or listening to sound
sources or moving in non-familiar spaces. The candidate will
perform a complete study where behavioral variables are combined
with neurophysiological correlates (EEG). The results of this
research will be applicable in the field of assistive technologies
for sensory and cognitive impairments and in clinical setups.

The research will be carried out in collaboration with a
team of engineers, psychologists and experts in the field of
sensory disabilities.

The ideal candidate should hold a Ph.D. Degree in
Psychology, Cognitive Science or Neuroscience.

He/she should have experience in at least one of the
following fields: Psychophysics, Neurophysiology, Cognitive
Neuroscience.

He/she should also have published in the related field.
Experience with software suites manipulating statistical data (R,
SPSS, Matlab, Python) are a plus.

He/she will be working in a fully equipped laboratory of
the “Spatial Awareness and Multisensory Perception” lab of the
Robotics, Brain and Cognitive Science Research Line.

Interested applicants should submit CV, list of
publications, names of 2 referees and a statement of research
interest to jobpost.73218@rbcs.iit.it quoting “Postdoctoral position in “Cognitive
representations of space through multisensory inputs” – BC:
73218” in the
subject by May 15,
2017.
