Os reenviamos un mensaje sobre una plaza postdoctoral en el Causal Cognition Group (CCG) de la Universidad de Málaga.

La Junta Directiva de la SEPEX

The Causal Cognition Group (CCG) is offering a full-time postdoctoral research position co-funded by two research grants: One of them is associated with a research project headed by Francisco J. López, and the other is associated with a research project headed by Pedro L. Cobos, both of them affiliated to the Universidad de Málaga (UMA) (Spain). Candidates will have to concurrently apply for both part-time positions, which, in practice, would be equivalent to a full-time position at UMA. In other terms, we will not consider applications for only one position because we will only choose a single candidate for both positions.

Both projects are part of a collaborative research effort of the CCG research team with David Luque at UAM, and Bram Vervliet (UK Leuven).

We expect the job starting date to be July 1st, 2021.
