Full Time / Fixed Term Contract for up to 2 years
Closing date: 1 November 2021
We are seeking an excellent postdoctoral researcher to join the Social Decision Neuroscience group (www.sdn-lab.org) led by Dr. Patricia Lockwood. The lab studies the cognitive, computational and neural basis of social learning and decision-making in healthy young adults, across the lifespan and in neurological and psychiatric disorders. The lab is funded by the Medical Research Council, Jacobs Foundation, CIFAR, and Wellcome Trust.
A 2 year postdoctoral position (with possibility of extension subject to funding) is available from 1st January 2022, or as soon as possible thereafter.
The main focus of this role will be on the design, collection and analysis of novel model-based behavioural, and neuroimaging experiments. In addition, the post holder may also undertake behavioural and neuroimaging studies involving children, adolescents and older adults, children with antisocial behaviours, as well as being part of large-scale online data collection projects. The position is broad and can be in part tailored to the applicants interest, and there is the opportunity to analyse existing data.
The successful candidate will be resourceful with the ability to act on their own initiative, excellent quantitative skills including programming (e.g. Matlab and R) for the design and analysis of experiments. Experience of using computational modelling, studies with diverse populations (children, adolescents, older adults), and advanced neuroimaging techniques (model-based imaging, MVPA or RSA) is desirable but not necessary.
To apply please upload a covering letter and CV.
