The Computational and Cognitive Neuroscience Lab (CCNL) at Dartmouth has openings for two enthusiastic graduate students to work on exciting projects on reward-based learning and decision making. One of the projects (funded by NIH) involves close collaboration with Alicia Izquierdo's lab at UCLA to investigate circuit-level neural mechanisms of adaptive learning. Starting date for one of the positions can be as early as Jan 2020 and the other position begins Sep 2020. A few recent relevant papers include:
