A fully-funded 4-year PhD position (€23,000 per annum stipend) 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
anticipated start date is January 2024 or May 2024.

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 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).

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.

Interested candidates should submit their CV and a brief research statement
describing their background and research interests and how they align with
the project and the broader interests of the research group. Applications
should be submitted by email directly to corbette at ucd.ie by the deadline of
