Applications are invited from highly motivated students to conduct PhD research in the Computational & Cognitive Neuroscience Lab, led by Angela Yu, at University of California, San Diego.

Candidates must have a strong background in mathematics and/or machine learning, and be committed to applying rigorous mathematical tools to modeling cognitive and neural processes. Experience or interest in carrying out human behavioral experiments (either in person or on Amazon M-Turk) and/or collaborating with other human/animal neuroscience laboratories is also desirable.

Current research in the lab ranges across cognitive control, decision-making, visual search, active learning, social cognition, and machine learning.

Dr. Yu's group is situated within the Cognitive Science department of UCSD, but Dr. Yu advises students not only from the Cognitive Science, but also from Computer Science & Engineering, Electrical & Computer Engineering, and Neurosciences PhD programs. Interested students should apply directly to one or more of the PhD programs, and indicate Dr. Yu as a potential research advisor in the research statement. They are also encouraged to email Dr. Yu directly to explain why they think their interests/background are a good fit for working with Dr. Yu.
