We have an opportunity for two postdoctoral research positions - funded by
the  ERC - to work in our lab at the Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging
(CCNi), within the School of Psychology and Neuroscience at the University
of Glasgow. The School of Psychology and Neuroscience is a world-class
research and teaching unit and it has recently been rated 4th in the UK and
1st in Scotland on research outputs (REF2021).

The posts have a strong computational cognitive neuroimaging component,
requiring advances in *1) theoretical neuroscience* – to enable the
development of a unified computational framework for integrating perceptual
and reward learning and decision making – and *2) multimodal brain imaging* –
to offer a high spatiotemporal characterisation of the relevant cortical
and subcortical pathways. Main research themes include, but not limited to:
reinforcement learning and valuation, risk and uncertainty, confidence and
metacognition, evidence integration and decision making.

The post holders will have the opportunity to be involved in cutting-edge
bespoke neuroimaging technology [3T/7TfMRI-EEG fusion] and advanced data
analytics to uncover and predict patterns in large multimodal datasets
[e.g. behaviour, simultaneous EEG-fMRI and eye-tracking data]. Please see
below for representative lab publications.

This post is full time and has funding up to 31st May 2026 in the first
instance with the possibility for an extension beyond this date.
