Up to two postdoctoral positions are available in my group at the Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology at the University of Glasgow, to work on an ERC-funded programme grant. Each position is for up to 5-years with a start date in June 2021 or soon thereafter.
The work aims to develop a unified framework for integrating perceptual and reward-based learning and decision-making and understanding the extent to which these processes share common computational and neurobiological underpinnings. The work will also take a critical look at the role of important decision modulators during these process, such as confidence, surprise, attention, etc.
Methodologically, the project will focus on multimodal brain imaging (e.g. behaviour, simultaneous EEG-fMRI in 3T and 7T, eye-tracking etc) and will further require the development and/or application of computational models to predict complex patterns in the multimodal datasets that will be acquired. The post-holder(s) will contribute to the design and programming of experiments, the acquisition of neural and behavioural data and the implementation of advanced multivariate data analytics for data fusion and neural characterisation.
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.
