roles of learning, prediction, memory, and attention in guiding
goal-directed behavior, especially within complex, naturalistic
environments. We are primarily interested in candidates using neuroimaging,
computational (e.g., Bayesian decision theory, reinforcement learning),
behavioral (including technology-driven approaches such as virtual
reality), and/or developmental approaches. Both individuals and teams are
encouraged to apply. Successful candidates will join a dynamic department

cognition, language, and development through combined neurobiological,
