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 
(www.econ.cam.ac.uk/faculty/baddeley).
Co-investigators: Wolfram Schultz & Philippe Tobler, Neuroscience 
(www.pdn.cam.ac.uk/staff/schultz/).

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 
mb150 at cam.ac.uk. All shortlisted candidates will be notified.

Deadline for application is October 30, although the search will 
continue until the post is filled.
