Ghent University is looking for two full-time PhD student positions on the topics of cognitive control, decision making, and reinforcement learning. Both are four-year positions (provided positive periodic evaluation), preferably starting in October 2020 or earlier. Candidates should have a Master’s degree (or equivalent) in a relevant domain such as Psychology, Cognitive Neuroscience, or a closely related discipline. The positions are part of an ERC Starting Grant project (CoCoFlex) on cognitive flexibility, and candidates will be expected to carry out empirical work studying behavior, possibly in combination with fMRI, pupillometry, or computational modeling. Expertise in these methods is not required, but strong interest in cognitive neuroscience, data analysis, and computer programming are. To apply or receive more information, please see our website for further details.
