Hi there,

Applications are invited for PhD (starting September 2021) and Research
Assistant positions at The O'Connell lab at Trinity College Dublin to work
on a project combining electrophysiological analyses and computational
modelling to examine the origins of inter-individual differences in human
decision making. These positions are funded by a European Research Council
Consolidator grant (2021-2026). Full information on the positions and
application requirements is available here (

Interested candidates should submit their CV and a brief cover letter
describing their background and research interests and how they align with
