A Postdoctoral Research Fellow position is available to work in the
laboratory of Associate Professor Elaine Corbett, in the UCD School of
Electrical and Electronic Engineering in Dublin, Ireland.

The successful candidate will contribute to the European Research Council
funded project MYODECISION, examining interactions between neuromuscular
and cognitive processes in perceptual decision making. Successfully
interacting with one’s environment requires a rich interplay of perceptual
judgement and neuromuscular control, with each taking account of the other
in real time. In this project, we will combine human neurophysiology and
computational modelling [1-2] to investigate how people adjust sensorimotor
processes to meet changing neuromuscular demands. The ideal candidate will
have a demonstrated interest in cognitive neuroscience/psychology of
decision making and experience in at least one of the following: signal
processing, EEG, EMG, and computational modelling.

The Corbett lab is part of the Cognitive Neural Systems Research Group (
https://cogneusys.com/) based in the School of Electrical and Electronic
Engineering in University College Dublin, Ireland, and is affiliated with
the Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience. The successful candidate
will have ample opportunities for wider collaborations and the learning of
new skills. Please feel free to get in touch in advance for more details or
advice (corbette at ucd.ie).

Interested candidates should submit through the UCD jobs website by the
deadline of 31/08/2023. Applications should include a CV and a brief research
statement describing

1) their background and research interests

2) how they align with the project and the broader interests of the
research group, and

3) a description of how they satisfy the selection criteria contained in
the job description.
