Research Associate, School of Science, Centre for Mathematical Cognition, Loughborough University, UK

Following a £6.6m grant from Research England, Loughborough University is seeking to appoint a highly-motivated full-time Research Associate following the establishment of the Centre for Mathematical Cognition (CMC). The CMC, founded in 2019, includes new research facilities and academic, research, administrative and technical posts. This represents a substantial expansion of Loughborough’s internationally recognised mathematical cognition and mathematics education research.

The post holder will work with academics in the Centre to co-design, implement and disseminate research projects that seek to broaden our understanding of mathematical cognition. We envisage that the post holder will lead on the recruitment of participants, data collection, data analysis, data management, report writing, presentations, and the design of future projects, adhering to open science principles.

Applicants should have a PhD (or be near completion) in psychology, education or a related discipline, and a desire to work with academics conducting research on mathematical cognition.

Application submission deadline: 31 January 2021

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.
