Dear all,

RITMO Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Rhythm, Time and Motion at
the University of Oslo is looking for a postdoctoral fellow to work
on "Attending to rhythms: Neural basis of auditory temporal attention and
prediction."

*Job description*
A Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship (SKO 1352) in cognitive neuroscience is
available at RITMO Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Rhythm, Time and
Motion at the University of Oslo to work on the project Attending to
rhythms: Neural basis of auditory temporal attention and prediction.

RITMO is a Centre of Excellence funded by the Research Council of Norway.
This interdisciplinary centre focuses on rhythm as a structuring mechanism
for the temporal dimensions of human life. Methods from musicology,
psychology, neuroscience, and informatics are combined to study rhythm as a
fundamental property that shapes and underpins human cognition, behaviour
and cultural expressions.

The postdoctoral researcher will work on the project Attending to rhythms:
Neural basis of auditory temporal attention and prediction, and will have a
primary affiliation with the Structure and cognition cluster at RITMO. The
project aims to investigate how predictions about forthcoming auditory
events are facilitated and reflected in the brain’s neural activity, and
how prediction interacts with selective attention.

The work of the postdoctoral researcher will have a particular focus on the
role of external temporal rhythms in guiding our attention and predictions.
Concurrent sampling of brain activity (for example fMRI, scalp- and/or
intracranial EEG) and behavioral data may be done with healthy participants
and neurological patients performing tasks that manipulate attention and
prediction (e.g., Dichotic Listening).
