Three post-doctoral fellowships in cognitive neuroscience

Application possible until 17 January 2011

Applications are invited for three post-doctoral fellowships in cognitive neuroscience, funded by the Einstein Foundation Berlin. These positions will be held at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin under the supervision of Professor R J Dolan. The focus of the fellowships will be the neuroscience of decision making. The posts would also aspire to recruit those with an interest in decision making as it relates to psychopathology.

The candidates should have a PhD either completed or in submission. Requisite skills should include an ability to programme, and skills in MATLAB. Some knowledge of computational neuroscience would be an advantage. The successful candidates should have displayed an aptitude to work independently and have an established interest in the general theme of the fellowships.
