Dear Colleagues,

I would like to let you know about 2 postdoctoral positions involving 
combination of modelling and human experiments to study neural bases of 
decision making:

Contract:  Fixed Term Contract (3-4 years)
Salary:  £29,972 - £37,990
Closing date for applications:  9:00am 12 Aug 2011
Anticipated interview date:  02 Sep 2011

Description

Two post-doctoral research associate positions are available to work in 
a newly established interdisciplinary Research Centre on Decision Making 
in an Unstable World, bringing together the Schools of Experimental 
Psychology, Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Bristol.

The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council UK (EPSRC) has 
awarded a four-year, £1.6M, grant to establish the Centre, which will 
build on current world-class research on decision-making which is 
carried out throughout the University. We will carry out experiments 
with human volunteers and build models to understand how decisions are 
made. The resulting models will then be applied to a range of real life 
problems.

You should have a strong desire to carry out interdisciplinary research 
combining mathematical and computational modelling with experimental 
research on humans.

For further information, please visit 
http://www.maths.bris.ac.uk/~madsl/decision-making. Informal enquiries 
are encouraged and should be made to Dr David Leslie 
(david.leslie at bristol.ac.uk) or Prof Iain Gilchrist 
(i.d.gilchrist at bristol.ac.uk).

Best wishes,
