A postdoctoral position is available in the lab of Will Alexander at 
Ghent University, Belgium.  The position is part of a 5 year project 
investigating reinforcement learning and cognitive control, funded 
through the FWO-Flanders.

The ideal candidate will have experience and interests in one or more of 
the following areas: 1) computational neural modeling, 2) fMRI, 3) 
cognitive control and 4) reinforcement learning. Individuals with 
experience in applying computational models to the analysis of fMRI data 
are especially encouraged to apply. Experience with Matlab is a plus.

Depending on background and interests, the successful candidate will 
have the opportunity to develop computational neural models of cognitive 
control and decision making, as well as to contribute to the design, 
execution, and analysis of behavioral and fMRI experiments intended to 
inform and constrain new computational models.

The duration of the position is initially two years, with the 
possibility of renewal for an additional two years  The position is
