Offer Description

Neural basis of human face recognition

Human Face Recognition, Visual Semantics. Human intracerebral and EEG recordings, Direct Electrical stimulation, Neuropsychology.

Starting date: September 2024

We are recruiting a PhD candidate to join the FaceCategorizationLab in Nancy (France) at CNRS and Université de Lorraine. The successful candidate will be supervised by Bruno Rossion, in collaboration with Jacques Jonas.


The selected candidate will focus on research on the neural mechanisms of human recognition of faces, as investigated with frequency-tagged electrophysiological activity (EEG and intracranial EEG). Neuropsychological and electrophysiological measurements during intracerebral electrical stimulation of the human ventral occipito-temporal cortex can also be part of the PhD program (see examples of relevant publications below).

The successful PhD candidate will become a full member of the Systems and Cognitive Neuroscience group of the CNRS laboratory IMoPA UMR7365, Université de Lorraine (Nancy, East of France). The research group is a small unit tightly linked to clinical research at the university hospital of Nancy (CHRU), including researchers in neuroscience, cognitive science, neuropsychologists and neurologists. He/she will have access to state-of-the-art research facilities at Université de Lorraine, CNRS and CHRU-Nancy.

The candidate should have a Master’s degree in neuroscience, cognitive science, biology, engineering, psychology or equivalent. Ideally, he/she should also have a good level in French and a solid background in cognitive neuroscience. Knowledge of electrophysiology/neuropsychology, programming skills (e.g., R, Matlab or Python) and a good level of English are a plus. High motivation, curiosity, creativity, perseverance and the ability to work in a team are also key personal skills.

The position will be fully funded (salary; no university fees) by the University of Lorraine and is for 36 months with standard French salaries. Applications should be sent as a single PDF to bruno.rossion@univ-lorraine including a CV, a letter of motivation and 2 names of references. Deadline: July 15th 2024 (candidates may be selected earlier, don’t wait to apply if you are interested).
