CDD post-doctorant de 2 ans en neuroscience computationnelle

Location: Lyon, France

Type of contract: 2 years(1 year renewable once), Full Time

Offer starting date: 10/2021

The Lyon Neuroscience Research Center (CRNL) is seeking a motivated and enthusiastic postdoctoral researcher to join the competitive and friendly Memory, Error and Learning (MEL) group.

Our project aims at identifying crucial neural computations during learning from errors in humans using machine-learning analyses applied to neural recordings (mainly magneto-and electro-encephalograhy,  M-EEG) and  interventional  strategies  to  modulate  learning  skills (non-invasive brain stimulation and mental training). State-of-the-art neuroimaging technics (MEG, EEG, MRI, intracranial recordings), brain stimulation methods (TMS, tDCS) behavioral equipment (eye-tracker) and access to high-computing clusters are available on the campus.
This  position  involves  the  design  of  experiments,  their  execution,  analysis,  write-up  and dissemination (publications, talks and posters).
The  successful  candidate  will  be  joining  a  diverse  team  performing  cutting-edge computational neuroscience on learning processes located at the Lyon Neuroscience Research center (CRNL). The CRNL is a multidisciplinary leading neuroscience institute integrating 18 teams and aiming at a comprehensive understanding of brain functions with a constant effort of translating research to clinic or societal improvements. The successful candidate will be supervised by Dr. Romain Quentin within the MEL group ( and will have the opportunity to closely collaborate with the EDUWELL (, COPHY ( and MEMO ( teams. The  start  date  is  October  2021 but is negotiable within few months.This call will be opened until filled.

Salary will be in accordance with INSERM agreement and based on research experience and qualification (~3000 € gross  monthly salary for a postdoc with 2 to 4 years of research experience).
