Post doc position in ERC-funded project "Action Selection under Threat", involving VR, behavioural experiments and modelling, wearable magnetoencephalography
Location: University College London (UK), Institute of Neurology, Max-Planck/UCL Centre for Computational Psychiatry and Ageing Research and Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging
Project lead: Dominik R Bach is a principal research fellow at UCL
The project will look at the cognitive-computational control of motor behaviour under acute, immediate threat. We will set up an immersive virtual reality (VR) environment, in which people can move to avoid various threats. We will record people's behaviour using optical and video tracking, and use machine-learning to structure motor trajectories. Scenarios will then be tweaked to expose limitations of the psychological or computational mechanisms that govern behaviour. Finally, we will use wearable magnetoencephalography (OPMs) at the WCHN to investigate the neural basis of these algorithms.
We are currently looking for candidates with a PhD in cognitive-computational (neuro)science, applied machine-learning, biomechanics, motor science, or a quantitative field of psychology (e.g. vision, perception, behavioural economics), or similar.
