Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the context of a multisite, multipartner collaboration between Anne Giersch (INSERM U1114, Strasbourg Univ.), Céline Meillier, Jack Foucher & Sylvain Faisan (I-Cube, CNRS, Strasbourg Univ.) and Virginie van Wassenhove (NeuroSpin, Saclay) as part of the FRM project entitled “Time, self and resting states in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder”.
The position is for 18 months, salary will be commensurate with experience and start date is ASAP.
Profile: The successful candidate will have demonstrated proficiency with data processing and/or data analysis.
The successful candidate will be responsible to model fMRI activity and the impact of time tasks on the dynamic of resting states networks.

Additional responsibilities include:
Eligible qualifications for this position include:
The successful participant will be located at the University of Strasbourg for fMRI analysis, and will work under the supervision of Céline Meillier and Sylvain Faisan; he will benefit from the consortium and work in collaboration with Virginie van Wassenhove, with stays in Neurospin.
The University of Strasbourg is one of the largest scientific hub in France, with close partnership in Europe, and especially cross-boarder exchanges with Germany and Switzerland. I-Cube (CNRS) is a large laboratory with more than 650 members working in the fields of engineering science and computer science, with imaging as the unifying theme. The INSERM laboratory headed by Anne Giersch works in close collaboration with both i-Cube and Virginie van Wassenhove since years. Her laboratory is recognized for its expertise in the field of cognition and psychotic disorders.
NeuroSpin is a neuroimaging center dedicated to the understanding of the human brain. Five laboratories currently share their expertise on site and provide a stimulating research environment. The hosting team would be the Cognition & Brain Dynamics team lead by Virginie van Wassenhove.
Please, submit a letter detailing your current research interests, a curriculum vitae, and the contact information of up to three individuals who can provide a letter of recommendation to Anne Giersch (firstname.lastname@example.org).
