TheInternational Max Planck Research School on Computational Methods in 
Psychiatry and Ageing Research 
applicants for a PhD fellowship to be based at University College London 
(UCL) under the supervision of Dr Dominik Bach (bachlab.org 
The fellowship is funded by the European Research Council within the 
project “Action selection under threat – the complex control of human 
defense”. The purpose of the project is to understand the 
cognitive-computational control of human motor behaviour under acute, 
immediate threat. We investigate this in an immersive virtual reality 
(VR) environment, in which people can move to avoid various threats. In 
a series of behavioural and magnetoencephalography experiments, we seek 
to understand the algorithms that control this behaviour, and their 
neural implementation. The experimental research takes place at the 
Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging and at the Department for 
Clinical and Movement Neuroscience at UCL.

*Deadline: 20 May 2020. Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed in 
early June 2020 via Skype. ***Intake of students October 2020 (with the 
possibility for a later start date).**
