(apologies for the multiple postings -- this is the last of the batch
of open positions!)
Postdoctoral Research Associate
We are seeking a postodoctoral research associate for a joint project
in Hierarchical Reinforcement Learning in the labs of Dr. Matthew
Botvinick and Dr. Yael Niv at the new Princeton Neuroscience Institute
and the Department of Psychology at Princeton University. The project
focuses on behavioral and fMRI experiments motivated by the theory of
Hierarchical Reinforcement Learning, investigating its implications
and bringing human decision making data to bear on new theoretical
advances (see http://www.princeton.edu/~yael/Publications/BotvinickNivBarto2008.pdf)
. We seek an exceptionally talented candidate with a strong background
in computational modeling and/or behavioral and functional imaging
experimentation, and a keen interest in learning and decision-making.
This is a one-year postdoctoral position with the possibility of
PhD in neuroscience, psychology, computer science, engineering, or
related field. All applications should include a cover letter stating
background and research interests, a CV, one or two representative
publications, and contact information of at least two references.
The ideal candidate will have a solid computational background
(machine learning, reinforcement learning, Bayesian models), will be
proficient in programming (Matlab or equivalent) and will have robust
experience with fMRI (event related designs and model-based analysis
Princeton University is an equal opportunity employer and complies
