Postdoctoral Research Associate, Department of Experimental Psychology, Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, Oxford, UK

We are seeking two highly motivated Postdoctoral Research Associates to work on an international collaborative project that is developing novel frameworks for humans and AI agents to work as effective, collaborative teammates. The project brings together cutting-edge research from cognitive neuroscience, brain-computer interfaces, neural engineering and machine learning.

The post holders will join Prof Nick Yeung’s Attention and Cognitive Control lab. The work on this project focuses on the role of metacognition in effective group decision making, including multivariate decoding of EEG activity. The team also work with partners including the Brain-Computer Interfaces and Neural Engineering Laboratory at the University of Essex and the Neural Systems Engineering & Information Processing Lab at the University of Southern California.

These posts are full-time, fixed term until 1 September 2022.

The successful candidates will hold a PhD/DPhil (or soon-to-be completed) or equivalent qualification in psychology or a relevant subject. Expertise in relevant research, e.g., in human cognitive neuroscience, decision making, human-machine teaming, online data collection, and/or EEG data collection and analysis is also essential. You will have a strong publication and dissemination record along with excellent statistical, coding and data-handling skills, with experience of programming for experimental design and data analysis. Your strong communication and organisation skills will enable you to work collaboratively.

The closing date for applications is midday on 11th June.  It is anticipated that interviews will be held during the week commencing 21st June, 2021.

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. You will be required to upload a supporting statement and CV as part of your online application and include the details of two referees.

Postdoctoral position, Braem Lab, Department of Experimental Psychology, Ghent University, Belgium

We are looking for applicants for a two-year (potentially three-year) postdoctoral position at Ghent University to work with us on the ERC project CoCoFlex, investigating the contextual modulation and selective reinforcement of cognitive flexibility. Candidates should have a PhD and, ideally, have a background in research on cognitive flexibility, cognitive control, reinforcement learning, or decision making. We are mostly interested in studying behaviour, in combination with computational modeling or fMRI. However, depending on the interests and strengths of the candidate, other methods can be considered as well.
