Position: Senior Research Fellow
Institution: University College London
Department: Institute of Neurology
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The post holder will undertake high quality research and produce high-impact publications as part of a new initiative, involving the Max Planck Society and UCL. The goal of the initiative is to exploit computational approaches to brain and behaviour to leverage insights into core deficits that underpin psychiatric disorder and cognitive change with ageing. This research project is focused on understanding the influence of emotion on decision making, using a combination of computational modelling and smartphone-based data collection. New paradigms will also be applied to the study of major depressive disorder and other psychiatric disorders
Requirements: Applicants must have a PhD in computational neuroscience (the degree must have been obtained by the agreed start date in post) and experience of conducting research in neuroscience. Experience in linear algebra, Bayesian statistics, and model-selection techniques as well as machine learning techniques and computational modelling of behaviour is essential. Applicants must have experience of programming in Matlab (and psychtoolbox or cogent, in particular), R, Python, and Javascript as well as extensive knowledge of neuroeconomics and reinforcement learning literature, and a good publication record of high quality research results. Knowledge of psychopathology and associated treatments is essential
