We invite expressions of interest for 2 postdoctoral research positions in the context of the project “Functional characterization of decisional components in motor responses for young and older adults (FundDeMYO)”, with Simone Sulpizio (University of Milano-Bicocca) and Michele Scaltritti (University of Trento) as PIs. The project investigates the decisional components influencing motor responses in binary decision making, with the goal to better understand the transition from cognition to action.
The research will focus on psycholinguistic paradigms with behavioral and electromyographic measures, as well as on comparisons between young and older adults.
The ideal candidates should have a PhD in psychology (or related disciplines), as well as substantial experience with experimental work (design, data collection, analyses). Experience with physiological data can be a plus. A working knowledge of Italian would be an asset, and the ideal candidate should be willing to acquire it over the course of the first year.
Application deadline: November 30, 2023
