Job Description

The Social and Cognitive Neuroscience Lab, SP, Brazil has 1 postdoctoral and 1 Young Talent researcher positions available to begin February/March 2020. The postdoctoral position is for two years and the young talent researcher for 18 months. In both cases renewal is possible.

Post-doctoral fellowship in Social and Affective Neuroscience

Application period: September 1st - November 20th

Start date: Between February - March 2020

Duration: 24 months

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship in Social and Affective Neuroscience. This is a CAPES-PrInt Fellowship within the scope of the project Theory and applications of Social and Affective Neuroscience to human everyday interaction. We aim to address fundamental questions regarding the universality of morality and affective processes and their implications on well-being and social networks across traditionally-studied WEIRD (i.e., wealthy, educated, industrial, rich, democratic) adult participants and less well-studied non-WEIRD participants (i.e., non-westernized indigenous tribes in remote regions from the Amazon and Alagoas regions in Brazil). This project funded by CAPES  - PrInt is putting together an international and interdisciplinary group of scholars with expertise in social neuroscience, affective science, and well-being. The selected candidate will work with Prof. Paulo Boggio in the Social and Cognitive Neuroscience Lab. Candidates should preferably have obtained their doctorate in Psychology, Neuroscience or related areas. We are looking for candidates with experience in EEG and/or fNIR as well as programming skills in R, Matlab, Python, among others. Our laboratory has as one of its main characteristics the valorization of teamwork and cooperation among its members; in this project this will be even more important as it is an interdisciplinary project that involves several members of the laboratory as well as from other research centers. Thus, candidates with social skills and ease of working in groups and in collaborative networks are also expected. The selected candidate will also have the opportunity to supervise students who will assist in the research. Both oral and written proficiency in English are required.
