A postdoctoral position is available in my group at the Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology at the University of Glasgow, focusing on computational cognitive neuroscience of human decision making and learning (funded by an ERC Consolidator Award).
The work aims to develop a unified framework for integrating perceptual and reward learning and understand the extent to which they share a common computational and neurobiological basis. The job has a strong theoretical neuroscience component and requires the development of computational models to uncover and predict patterns in large multimodal datasets [e.g. behaviour, simultaneous EEG-fMRI and eye-tracking data]. Moreover, the work will focus on the development of a computational framework, in which neural data are used to constrain parameter estimation [i.e. neurally-informed cognitive modelling] to enable mechanistic insights that might otherwise be missed with a conventional modelling approach [i.e. based on behaviour alone].
Applicants must have a PhD in a relevant area with an excellent record of research achievements and expertise at the intersection of two or more of the lab’s main research priorities and methodological approaches. The lab is committed to diversity and we welcome applications from qualified candidates of all backgrounds, including minority and under-represented groups.
