Postdoctoral Fellowships

Prospective postdoctoral fellows interested in applying for external funding and are considering our Institute/Lab as a potential host organisation are encouraged to get in touch with Dr. Philiastides directly. We would be happy to consider project proposals for a number of fellowship opportunities, including but not limited to: Marie Curie Individual Fellowships (Fall deadline), British Academy Postodoctoral Fellowships (Fall deadline), Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowships (Spring deadline), Newton International Fellowships (Spring deadline; only for candidates coming from overseas). It is imperative that you get in touch with us well in advance of the advertised deadlines to discuss potential opportunities in our lab and agree on a research project. Along with your inquiry, please attach a detailed description of your research interests and a copy of your CV, highlighting your current achievements and expertise. 


PhD Opportunities (Fall 2018)

We are currently accepting inquiries from potential PhD students to start work in our lab in the Fall of 2018. We are seeking highly motivated students with interests (and some prior experience) in human decision making and learning*. If you would like to be considered for one of our paid PhD studentships you are encouraged to get in touch with us early (some of our studentship applications have deadlines as early as November/December 2017) with a detailed description of your research interests along with a CV highlighting your current achievements and expertise. We will also consider offering part-time PhD studentship in collaboration with industrial partners wishing to train employees in our lab. All inquiries should be sent to Dr. Philiastides.

*As of last year, an ultra-high field MR scanner (7T) has been installed at the University. As such we will be offering a rare opportunity to work on high-resolution fMRI experiments imaging the role of sub-cortical structures in decision making.


General Enquires

We are always on the lookout for highly-motivated students (undergraduate and postgraduate) and post-doctoral associates to join our research team. For more information on current projects and on how to get involved email Dr. Philiastides with a detailed CV and a short description of your interests and expertise (note that we are also interested to hear from individuals with a background in the formal and/or applied sciences - e.g., computer science, mathematics, engineering - as we continue to develop more sophisticated tools for algorithmic decoding and classification of neural data).

The excellent research infrastructure at the university and our dedicated neuroimaging facilities together with the opportunity to interact and collaborate with colleagues with a diverse set of research interests within our Institute and across the university (e.g., Computer Science, Physics, Engineering, Medicine, etc) provide a highly stimulating and productive research environment.

Finally, note that we also regularly offer fully funded opportunities for postdoctoral associates and postgraduate students directly through our lab. These positions will be posted here as they become available.
