*Job Description:*
Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant at the Institute
of Cognitive Neuroscience, University College London. The postdoc will be
jointly supervised by Bahador Bahrami (Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience)
and Peter Latham (Gatsby Unit). The goal of the project is to develop and
test (via behavioural experiments) computational models of social learning
and collective decision-making. This will build on our previous work in
collective decision-making (Bahrami et al: Science 329:1081-1085, 2010; J
Exp Psychol Hum Percept Perform 38:3?8, 2012; Phil Trans R Soc B
367:1350-1365, 2012), and will form the basis of model-based fMRI analysis.

*Essential:*
PhD in Physics, Computer Science or Computational Neuroscience, or very
near to obtaining a PhD Knowledge or strong interest in computational
neuroscience, collective decision-making, and machine learning Strong
programming skills in MATLAB or similar languages

*Desirable:*
Experience in web-based programming (e.g. Java) for setting up online
experiments
with multi-user interactions
Experience in model-based fMRI data analysis.
