There are typically 6 people working with me (PhD students or post-docs). Sometimes I will advertise openings in this page and in emailing lists.




Post-doctoral position on cognitive modeling at CNRS & Aix-Marseille Université

Applications are invited for a post-doc position on cognitive modeling funded by a European Research Council Starting Grant led by F.-Xavier Alario.


The 5-year project LIPS examines the cognitive and neural mechanisms involved in lexical information processing. The project combines theoretical cognitive psychology with mental chronometry and neurophysiological (EEG/MEG) recordings.

The person hired will be responsible for developing and implementing quantitative models of response selection. The primary duties will involve designing computational and statistical models and simulations that lead to testable predictions, as well as disseminating findings through journal articles and conference presentations.


The candidates must have (1) A PhD degree obtained in a relevant field of research, (2) solid demonstrable scientific expertise (i.e. published articles in international scientific journals), (3) experience in quantitative models of cognitive processing, especially pertaining to response selection or decision making (or other comparable models), (4) extensive programming skills in R | Matlab | Python | ....

The ideal candidates are highly motivated and creative individuals, capable of working independently and in groups. Previous experience with language processing research is not a requirement, a stated interest for language research is a plus. The working language is English.


The group offers a rich and stimulating research environment, with strong cross-disciplinary interactions and active international collaborations, in which the selected candidate can expect to participate. For further information, please visit

This position is based in Marseille / Aix-en-Provence. It is intended to start on September 1st, 2013, but the date is negotiable.
