The Inserm Laboratory Cognition, Action, Plasticity of Sensorimotor System (CAPS) currently has an open postdoctoral position, which will start in 2022, on the 1st of January (1 year). The candidate will investigate behavioral markers for embodiment in subjects exposed to telepresence through beaming into the iCub robot. We are interested in candidates with a background in perceptual/cognitive neuroscience and/or related human-robot interactions training. Experience in human neuroimaging is a plus. Successful applicants will be able to participate in a cutting-edge research program to understand the cognitive and neural basis of body perception during human-robot interactions, including telepresence. Behavioral studies will investigate the effects of robotic telepresence on representation of the body-self. This will provide the basis for future follow-up investigations using advanced large-scale brain imaging techniques coupled to humanoid robotic platforms.
Send at firstname.lastname@example.org, a CV, a 1-2 page research statement (including accomplishments and interests), and names and contacts for 2-3 referees.
The deadline for applications is the 30th of November 2021.
