Position: Research Associate
Institution: University College London
Department: Institute of Neurology
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: We are seeking suitably qualified postdoctoral Research Associates interested in combining computational modelling with smartphone-based data collection in samples of tens of thousands of people. Projects will focus on decision making and behavioural change, and where appropriate development of a neuroimaging component (fMRI/MEG) or testing in clinical settings will be encouraged
Requirements: Applicants must have, or be close to obtaining, a PhD in neuroscience, psychology, or a quantitative field, eg, Computer Science, Engineering, Physics (the degree must have been obtained by the agreed start date in post). Those with a background in computational neuroscience may be especially suited for this position. Expertise using computational approaches in the study of reinforcement learning and decision making or expertise with machine learning techniques, and proficiency in data analysis, are essential. Experience in fMRI and/or MEG, an interest in statistical methods and in contributing to research in psychiatry, and a good publication record of high quality research results are desirable
