We have a fully-funded PhD studentship at the Centre for Cognitive
Neuroimaging (CCNi) at the University of Glasgow starting in the Fall of
2019. The PhD work will focus on comparing social and non-social decisions
and the extent to which they share common computational principles and
neural implementation, using simultaneous EEG-fMRI measurements and
computational modelling.

We are looking for a highly motivated individual with a background in
Cognitive Sciences, Neuroscience, Behavioural Economics or a related
discipline. Strong interest in and familiarity with decision neuroscience,
reinforcement learning and behavioural economics is an essential
requirement along with excellent statistical and programming skills
(preferably in Matlab and/or R). A good grounding in experimental research
methods with experience in brain imaging (e.g. EEG, fMRI) would be
considered a plus.

The PhD will be based at the CCNi, which brings together researchers with
interests in cognitive neuroscience, functional neuroimaging,
neuropsychology, computational modelling and advanced analysis methods
development. The CCNi provides an exceptional environment for brain imaging
research with dedicated support from world-leading radio physicists and
frequency engineers. The centre houses state-of-the-art 3T and 7T Siemens
MR scanners, a magneto-encephalography (MEG) system, several EEG and TMS
systems (including MR-compatible devices), eye-movement recorders and 4D
model capture, all designed for non-invasive multi-modal brain imaging.

Applications will be accepted until April 5th here:

Shortlisting will begin shortly thereafter and interviews will be held
towards the end of April. Direct all informal enquires to Dr. Marios
