PhD Studentship in Human Neuroeconomics
Human social decision-making: collaborative project in economics and
neuroscience, University of Cambridge, UK
A three year PhD studentship is available on a Leverhulme Trust
funded project on the Neural Basis of Human Herding Behaviour,
involving behavioural economics and brain imaging (fMRI) of
decision-making under social influence.
Principal Investigator: Michelle Baddeley, Economics
Co-investigators: Wolfram Schultz & Philippe Tobler, Neuroscience
The studentship will cover university fees at UK-EU rate, college
fees and living expenses at UK Research Council rates. For reasons of
university fees, only candidates residing in the UK, European Union
or Switzerland since at least three years can be considered.
Applicants should be graduates in experimental psychology,
behavioural or experimental economics or finance, neuroscience,
behaviour, physiology, biology, medicine, physics or robotics with an
interest in the quantitative analysis of brain and behaviour
functions. The project offers training in the following techniques,
and the ideal candidate would have existing experience in one or more
of these: experimental analysis of behaviour including econometric
and psychometric procedures, human fMRI imaging with data analysis
using Anovas and regressions (primarily SPM), computer programming
for behavioural control (primarily in Matlab). Excellent writing and
social skills are essential.
Please send applications with CV, half-page list of skills, half-page
statement of scientific interests and professional plans, and contact
details of two references by email to Dr. Michelle Baddeley at
