Gassert  Roger-2
The Sensory-Motor Laboratory (SeMoLa; https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__iontalab.org_&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=nDJO4jGr04Uq_-X36ITvBJS9-MKjgPA-QrbBucKUk_g&s=gA3uIvIUfZT-Bl7Lh7Vp-dQHBL8r-Aqi_YvxJTsIObA&e=), in association with the University of Lausanne (UNIL), the Fondation Asile des Aveugles, and the Rehabilitation Engineering Lab at ETH Zurich (www.relab.ethz.ch), invites applications for a full-time postdoctoral position under the direction of Prof. Silvio Ionta.

The project will investigate the behavioral and neural bases of visuo-motor integration in humans. In particular, the focus will be on how visual input is processed and used to guide movements, and vice versa. The successful candidate will be involved in behavioral and neurophysiological testing (fMRI), using tools such as MRI-compatible neuroscience robotics.

Conditions of application
- PhD in Mechanical/Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Brain Imaging or related disciplines - Strong background in fMRI and/or Robotics (and strong interest in the other field)
- High competence in programming, data analysis, and scientific writing
- Prior experience with MVPA, PPI, functional connectivity, VBM, DTI of advantage
- Previous experience at the postdoctoral level is recommended Evaluation procedure

The application dossier should be sent to [hidden email] by 31 January 2018 at the latest. After a first, dossier-based screening, selected candidates will be interviewed in Lausanne. The ideal start date is 01 April 2018, depending on the selection procedure.

All dossiers must contain:
(i) Motivation letter; (ii) CV including publication list; (iii) reference letter; (iv) whenever possible reprints/preprints

Infrastructure
SeMoLa is located in Lausanne, Switzerland, as part of the Fondation Asile des Aveugles. Its interactions include (among others) The University Hospital Centre (CHUV), The University of Lausanne, HES-SO, EPFL, and ETH Zurich. The successful candidate will spend part of the working period at ETH Zurich to train on MRI-compatible neuroscience robotics.

Working conditions
Full-time position, yearly renewable contract up to 3 years total, salary in accordance with the Fondation Asile des Aveugles (between CHF 80’000 and CHF 89’600.-).
