postdoctoral position in Cerco, Toulouse

Dear Auditory community,

Please find the following advertisement for a position in our laboratory:

Postdoctoral position in neuroscience – Multisensory integration

One Postdoctoral research fellow position is available to work on a project directed by  Pascal Girard at the Brain and Cognition Research Center (Centre de recherche Cerveau et Cognition - CerCo) in Toulouse, France. The main objective of the project is to explore the neuronal mechanisms of visuo-auditory integration in the macaque auditory cortex. The project combines behavioral training of awake rhesus macaque monkeys coupled with reversible inactivation (cooling) of the auditory cortex.

This project is part of a broader project including investigations in multisensory processing in humans or NHP in the team ‘C3P’ directed by Pascal Barone in CerCo and funded by the French Agence Nationale de Recherche (ANR).


The CerCo is a research unit created by the CNRS and the Université Paul Sabatier (Toulouse 3) working on 4 main research topics:

  • Processing dynamics and cortical interactions (‘C3P’)
  • 3D Space and Context
  • Perception and Recognition of Objects and Scenes
  • Shaping of Mental States and Representations

More information about research in the lab can be found at http://www.cerco.ups-tlse.fr

Candidates should send a detailed CV including bibliographical references, contact information, statement of research interest, and the name of two references to Pascal Girard (pascal.girard@xxxxxxx). Applications will be reviewed until the position is filled.

Skills: Candidate should hold a PhD. Candidate should have robust knowledge in sensory neurophysiology and animal behavior. Training with nonhuman primates is a strong advantage. Adequate training with matlab is also a clear advantage. Candidate should be fluent in English; mastering of French is not mandatory.

Salary will be in accordance with French norms for Postdoc. The initial appointment is 18 months.

The city of Toulouse is an attractive city with high quality of life located in the south west of France
