Postdoctoral position in reinforcement learning at Harvard University

The Gershman lab at Harvard University (Department of Psychology and Center
for Brain Science) is recruiting a postdoctoral fellow to work in the area
of reinforcement learning and decision making. The focus of this research
is on structure learning: How does the brain discover the underlying
structure of its environment, and use this structure to guide learning and
decision making? To answer this question, we combine computational theory
with behavioral and brain imaging experiments. We work primarily with human
subjects, but the postdoc will have the opportunity to collaborate with
several animal labs at Harvard.

For more information about the lab's research, please visit:

Start date: On or after July 1st, 2015.

Qualifications: Strong candidates will have experience with computational
neuroscience, probability theory, and model-based analysis of brain imaging
and behavioral data.

To apply: Candidates should send a CV and a research statement (not
exceeding 2 pages) to Sam Gershman (gershman at fas.harvard.edu). Please
arrange for 2 letters of reference to be sent to the same address.

Harvard is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will
receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color,
religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran
status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
