The Basque Center on Cognition Brain and Language (BCBL) in San Sebastian (Basque Country, Spain) is offering a 2-year funded Post-Doctoral opportunity.
The post-doctoral fellow will be integrated within the Neurolinguistics and Aphasia group. The position is not linked to a specific project: the postdoctoral researcher will have the opportunity to work on their own research ideas within the main research interests of the group, whilst collaborating on other projects conducted by the PI and her group. The candidate must have experience in designing and conducting experimental studies on language comprehension and production using behavioral and neuroimaging techniques.
PI and research group: the successful candidate will work with the PI, Dr. Simona Mancini and her team. The Neurolinguistics and Aphasia group uses various techniques (e.g., behavioral testing, eyetracking EEG/MEG, fMRI) and designs (cross-linguistic, cross-sectional, longitudinal) to investigate the mechanisms underlying language comprehension and production and their interaction with other cognitive domains, across distinct populations (speakers with and without language impairment) and contexts (e.g., recovery from stroke). The group also actively collaborates with clinicians to transfer the results of fundamental research into clinical settings, with the goal to improve detection, diagnosis and treatment of language impairment.
