10 PhD Positions on Decision Confidence

We have openings for 10 PhD students to work on studies of decision confidence in the context of a recently awarded Horizon Europe MSCA Doctoral Networks grant. This is a collaborative effort to advance our current understanding of decision confidence and involves 9 research labs throughout Europe.

A listing of Principal Investigators (PIs) is given below. Interested candidates are invited to contact the PI(s) whose research focus and techniques best match their area of interest.

Janneke Jehee (Donders Institute)
Neural and computational basis of sensory uncertainty and decision confidence, fMRI, MEG, computational modeling, psychophysics.

Uta Noppeney (Donders Institute)
Computational and neural mechanisms of decision confidence, metacognition and information seeking, psychophysics, computational modeling, MEG, fMRI.

Pascal Mamassian (École Normale Supérieure)
Sensory and confidence uncertainty, probabilistic models of confidence, visual psychophysics.

Kobe Desender (KU Leuven)
Computational modeling of decision confidence, drift diffusion model, reinforcement learning, EEG.

Steve Fleming (University College London)
Neural and computational basis of metacognition, confidence and information seeking, MEG, fMRI, computational modeling, psychophysics, individual differences.

David Soto (Basque Center on Cognition, Brain and Language)
Developmental studies of decision confidence, psychophysics, machine learning, computational modeling.

Ruth van Holst (Amsterdam University Medical Centers)
Decision confidence in impulsive and compulsive disorders, cognitive (online) tests, computational modeling.

Elisa Filevich (University of Tübingen)
Malleability of confidence and metacognition, psychophysics, EEG, movement analysis, computational modeling, machine learning.

Andrea Desantis (The French Aerospace Lab – ONERA)
Neural basis of perceptual confidence, psychophysics, pupillary response, EEG, machine learning, BCI.

The successful candidates will receive interdisciplinary training in theories and methods for the study of decision confidence. This includes many network-wide events and other (international) training opportunities.

We explicitly encourage women and other underrepresented groups to apply. Additional financial support for researchers with families is available. Candidates must comply with the Marie Curie Actions rule for mobility, which holds that they have spent no more than 12 months of the past 3 years in the country of the PI’s lab. Moving expenses for relocating to a new country will be covered.
