Dear All (with apologies for cross-posting),

We seek to appoint a Post-doctoral Research Fellow at Queen Mary, 
University of London as part of an EPSRC-funded project 
predicting musical choices using computational models of cognitive and 
neural processing. The goal of the project is to understand the 
cognitive and neural processes involved in musical preference decisions 
using computational modelling that incorporates the structure of the 
music, the psychological state and traits of the listener and the 
listening context.

The successful candidate will be involved in the design and 
implementation of the models, data collection from human listeners in 
behavioural and EEG experiments, analysing the data to test the model 
predictions, and writing up the results for publication in peer-reviewed 

Start date: 5 January 2015. Duration: 14 months (until March 5 2016). 
Salary: £34,283.
