Oportunidade de Pós-Doc em Neurociência Cognitiva Computacional na Universidade da Califórnia em San Diego

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the Computational Cognitive Neuroscience Lab, led by Angela Yu, at University of California, San Diego.  Initial appointment is for one year, with flexible start date and possibility for renewal.

Dr. Angela Yu will be interviewing candidates at Society for Neuroscience Meeting in Washington DC (Nov. 12-16).

The project is to develop a decision-theoretical framework for the inter-related problems of perceptual decision-making, active vision, statistical learning, and social decision-making.  Candidates must have a strong mathematical background in areas including but not restricted to frequentist and Bayesian statistics, reinforcement learning, information theory, and control theory.  Experience with measure-theoretic probability theory, stochastic processes, stochastic control theory (stopping problems, bandit problems, sequential decision problems), and/or dynamical systems analysis is a bonus.  Candidate should also have programming experience, such as Matlab or equivalent.  Research experience in behavioral experiments and fMRI/EEG neuroimaging is highly desired.  Applicants should be committed to applying rigorous mathematical tools to modeling cognitive and neural processes, as well as carrying out human behavioral experiments and collaborating with other human/animal neuroscience laboratories.

Dr. Yu’s lab is situated within the Natural Computation Lab in the Cognitive Science department of UCSD.  It is affiliated with the Temporal Dynamics of Learning Center, the UCSD Neurosciences Graduate Program, and the Institute of Neural Computation.  It provides ample opportunities for communication and collaboration with related labs not only with other groups in the department of Cognitive Science, but also in Psychology, Linguistics, Neuroscience, Electric and Computer Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, as well as the Salk Institute.

Interested candidates should send a research statement, along with a CV including publications and references to: ajyu@ucsd.edu.  Two or more letters of references should be sent directly to the same address.
