The neuronal bases of voice information processing studied using machine learning and primate electrophysiology

Principal Collaborator : Pascal Belin and Thierry Artières

Labotary : Institut de Neurosciences de la Timone, Marseille & Laboratoire d’Informatique des Systèmes, Marseille

We invite applications from candidates to a PhD project to be presented in the annual PhD call by the Institute of Language, Communication and the brain (https://www.ilcb.fr/) in Aix-Marseille University, in which 3 PhD grants will be awarded on a competitive basis.

The successful candidate will be co-supervised by Prof Pascal Belin (Institut de Neurosciences de la Timone, Marseille https://neuralbasesofcommunication.eu/ ) and Prof Thierry Artières (Laboratoire d’Informatique des Systèmes, Marseille https://pageperso.lis-lab.fr/thierry.artieres/ ). The project aims to measure, via multi-electrode arrays implanted chronically in the auditory cortex of monkeys, the neuronal activity evoked by a large array of complex sounds, and analyze that neuronal activity using machine learning tools, particularly deep-learning, to better understand the neurocognitive architecture underlying cerebral voice processing in primates. This project is part of a larger ERC-funded project entitled “Comparative Studies of Voice Perception in Primates” (COVOPRIM).

The successful candidate will have a Master’s degree or equivalent, strong interest and/or background in machine learning and deep learning, strong interest in Neuroscience and strong motivation to work with primates. He/she will be registered at Ecole Doctorale 62 at Aix-Marseille University (https://ecole-doctorale-62.univ-amu.fr/), embedded in the everyday activity of the two co-supervising teams, as well as in the PhD program of ILCB (https://www.ilcb.fr/education/phd-program/ ).

Please send your Expression of Interest and CV to pascal.belin@univ-amu.fr and thierry.artières@univ-amu.fr before June 1st, 2022
