PhD thesis in cognitive neuroscience (M/F)


Job description

Offer DescriptionThe successful candidate will join the Center de Recherche de Cerveau et Cognition (CerCo) in a dynamic research institute in Toulouse, a thriving city in the south of France. CerCo is a research center created by the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) and Paul Sabatier University, made up of more than 30 researchers and around 40 doctoral and post-doctoral students. The candidate will join the NeuroAI team, with a strong focus on computational neuroscience and artificial intelligence. The team has access to different experimental facilities, such as EEG, TMS and fMRI, as well as computing resources (clusters and local GPUs).The project is part of an ERC starting grant investigating the role of oscillatory traveling waves in cognitive functions. Our primary goal is to study neural oscillations within and between cortical regions, as well as cortical-thalamic interactions. Our approach’s novelty consists of framing the model in the light of Predictive Coding principles, using a computational approach based on spiking and deep neural networks. We’ll compare the results of the simulations against experimental recordings of human participants (mostly EEG) to validate and assess the model’s predictions.RequirementsResearch Field Biological sciences Education Level PhD or equivalentResearch Field Computer science Education Level PhD or equivalentResearch Field Mathematics Education Level PhD or equivalentLanguages FRENCH Level BasicResearch Field Biological sciences Years of Research Experience NoneResearch Field Computer science Years of Research Experience NoneResearch Field Mathematics Years of Research Experience NoneAdditional InformationAdditional commentsPlease provide a transcript of the marks for the two years of the master’s degree with details of the attended classes, a copy of the research dissertation carried out as part of the master’s degree, a detailed CV, and a cover letter.
