Applications are invited from highly motivated researchers for a postdoctoral position immediately available in the Computational & Cognitive Neuroscience Lab, led by Prof. Angela Yu, at University of California, San Diego. Initial appointment is for one year, renewable for up to 2-3 years.

Dr. Yu’s lab applies modern machine learning and statistical tools to extract computational principles that underlie cognitive processes that enable intelligent behavior, in particular how humans and other intelligent agents perform inference, learning, decision-making, and social interactions under conditions of uncertainty and non-stationarity. Current interests include perception, face processing, active sensing, judgement and decision making, and social cognition.

Applicants should be committed to applying rigorous mathematical tools to model cognitive functions and/or their neural underpinnings. Experience or interest in carrying out human behavioral experiments (either in person or on Amazon M-Turk) and/or collaborating with other neuroimaging/neurophysiology laboratories is desirable.

Dr. Yu's lab is situated within the Cognitive Science department, and also affiliated with the Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute, the Computer Science Department, the Neurosciences Graduate Program, and the Institute of Neural Computation. There are ample opportunities for collaborations with related groups across the UCSD main campus, the medical school, and the Salk Institute.

Interested candidates should send a research statement, along with a CV including publications, to Dr. Angela Yu (ajyu at ucsd.edu) with the subject “Postdoc Application”. Two or more letters of references should be sent directly by the recommenders to ajyu at ucsd.edu. More information about Dr. Yu’s group can be found at http://www.cogsci.ucsd.edu/~ajyu .
