Applicants should have a PhD in Psychology, an excellent background in cognitive psychology (especially in the field of attention), should be proficient in English (comprehension and writing), and have good statistical and programming skills (e.g., E-Prime). Preference will be given to candidates who can demonstrate a good research track record. While the majority of the work will be behavioral, some experience or an interest in learning to use transcranial direct electric stimulation (tDCS) will be valued, as some of the research to be carried out will involve this technique.
The Neuropsychology and Cognition group at the University of the Balearic Islands is offering an 17 months post-doctoral contract (starting March 1st, 2017) to work with Prof. Fabrice Parmentier on a MINECO-funded project on auditory distraction by unexpected sounds.
The job will consist in carrying out laboratory experiments (e.g., help prepare materials and program tasks, recruit and test participants, manage and analyze data) and participate in the dissemination of the results (participation to the writing up of scientific articles, participation to conferences).
This job opportunity is ideal for a cognitive psychologist with a motivation for research and wanting to develop their CV to pursue a research career by working in a productive research group. While the research topic is set, the successful applicant will be encouraged to take an active role, and new initiatives fitting the project’s objectives will be welcomed.
