We are looking for a scientist with a strong theoretical background in typical human development whose research primarily employs innovative behavioral methods, to complement our expertise in neuroimaging (MRI, EEG, fNIRS) of young children and neurodevelopmental disorders. We are particularly interested in a broad thinker with good quantitative skills to join our team.
