in association with the University of Lausanne (UNIL), the Fondation Asile
des Aveugles, and the Rehabilitation Engineering Lab at ETH Zurich (
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
- Previous experience at the postdoctoral level is recommended Evaluation

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

(i) Motivation letter; (ii) CV including publication list; (iii) reference
letter; (iv) whenever possible reprints/preprints

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.-).
