1 Postdoc and 1 PhD position in the ERC-project QUANTA

The Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology unites scientists with various backgrounds (natural sciences and humanities) whose aim is to investigate the history of humankind from an interdisciplinary perspective with the help of comparative analyses of genes, cultures, cognitive abilities, languages and social systems of past and present human populations as well as those of primates closely related to human beings.

The Department of Linguistic and Cultural Evolution (DLCE) at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology (MPI-EVA) invites applications for a three-year Postdoc and a three-year PhD position, associated with the project "Evolution of Cognitive Tools for Quantification (QUANTA)", funded by the European Research Council with a Synergy Grant to Andrea Bender (UiB), Francesco d’Errico (CNRS Bordeaux), Russell Gray (MPI for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig), and Rafael Núñez (UCSD).

Deadline for applications is 1 September, 2021

Post Doctoral Fellow Opportunity at the University of Maryland, Child Development Lab

The Child Development Laboratory at the University of Maryland, College Park is searching for a postdoctoral fellow to work on ongoing research related to EEG, including methods development and the application of EEG measures to infant and child cognition and the development of psychopathology. The position is open immediately and is for up to two years, with the possibility of an extension depending on grant funding.


Position qualifications include a PhD in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, or a related field; experience with EGI high density systems for ERP and EEG acquisition and analysis; strong experimental and statistical skills; ability to work independently and in a team environment on multiple tasks and projects and to share one’s expertise with and train others. Experience with software programs (MATLAB, EEGLAB or other relevant programs), programming tasks (E-prime, Presentation), and statistical analysis (SPSS, R) is highly desired.


The successful candidate will primarily be responsible for analyzing EEG and ERP data from high density EGI systems, working on the development of new methods for pre-processing and analysis of EEG data, writing scientific papers and participating in the intellectual life of the lab. Other duties will include working with research assistants and graduate and undergraduate students.


Please address questions or send a letter of research interests, a CV, and contact information for three references to Nathan Fox ( 

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
