Institution: University College London
Department: UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology - Max Planck UCL Centre for Computational Psychiatry and Ageing Research
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: We are now recruiting a Research Fellow/Senior Research Fellow to work on an MRC-funded project: “Memory-based sequential decision making”. The project will address key questions related to the role of memory in goal-directed planning, and the modulating effect of mood and depression symptoms on decision-making. A particular focus will be in computational models of behavioural data (e.g., reinforcement learning) and in multivariate analyses of neuroimaging (MEG) data. You will design and conduct the behavioural and neuroimaging (MEG) studies that address these questions
Requirements: You will hold a PhD in computational, cognitive, or behavioural neuroscience, psychology, computer science, or a related area, and have experience with modelling of behavioural and/or neuroimaging data, programming, and knowledge of at least one programming language. Extensive knowledge of memory and/or decision-making neuroscience literature and a track record of publishing high quality research results are also essential to this role; A DBS check is required due to the nature of the work and must have been completed satisfactorily before you start in post; To be appointed as Senior Research Fellow you will need to have prior postdoctoral experience, demonstrable experience of leading projects to completion, and experience of supervising or co-supervising students
