Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Researcher to work with Dr Nura Sidarus as part of the ESRC funded project “A Computational Approach to Understanding Maladaptive Cognition in Depression”, at Royal Holloway University of London. The project will investigate the neurocomputational mechanisms of maladaptive cognition underlying depressive symptoms, through online, clinical, and neuroimaging studies focusing on attribution and value-based decision-making and learning.
We are looking for talented, highly-skilled and motivated researchers with a PhD in a related field (e.g. neuroscience, psychology, or cognitive science), with considerable experience applying mathematical modelling techniques to data. Strong abilities in programming and statistics are essential. Expertise in neuroscience of mental health and fMRI are highly desirable.
The preferred start date is Summer 2021, or as soon as can be arranged, for up to December 2022. Informal enquiries may be made to Dr Nura Sidarus.
Application deadline: 6 April 2021
