How our social skills are rooted in ancient biological and phylogenetic mechanisms is fascinating to me. In 2019, I started my research program at the Paris Brain Institute as a CNRS Permanent Researcher. Previously I trained as a Research Associate and Post-Doctoral Fellow at The Rockefeller University in New York and as a Graduate Student at Institut des Sciences Cognitives Marc Jeannerod in Lyon.

We are looking for creative and motivated Postdocs and Graduate and Undergraduate Students to join our group, to study social processing and social cognition using tools including functional magnetic resonance imaging, multielectrode recordings, and behavioral analyses. Our goal is to track how social learning about others and from others is instantiated in the brain. Successful candidates will help design and execute a research program aimed at understanding how brains of social beings make sense of their societies.
The position is initially for 1 year. Both French and international candidates are welcome. Candidates, preferably with experience in fMRI or in-vivo neuroscience, as well as coding skills (Matlab/Python), should send their CV, research statement, and representative publications to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The position is for 3 years. Both French and international candidates are welcome. PhD student at the Paris Brain Institute are affiliated to Sorbonne University through the Brain-Cognition-Behaviour Doctoral School (ED3C). Candidates, interested in learning fMRI, in-vivo neuroscience, and in acquiring coding skills (Matlab/Python), should send their CV and statement of research interests to email@example.com.
