Fully-funded PhD Position in Cognitive Neuroscience

The Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Lab and the Computational and Cognitive Neuroscience Lab at Dartmouth have a joint, fully-funded PhD position for a motivated student to work on an exciting project on understanding how interactions between belief, expectation, and prior experience shape learning about reward and pain, process of belief formation, and how expectation or reward and pain influences perception and learning. 
The project is a collaboration between two labs and involves a combination of human experiments and computational modeling.

A suitable candidate would have a strong background in cognitive and/or computational neuroscience, good computer programming skills, and a strong desire to understand neural mechanisms underlying cognition.

Interested candidates should contact Alireza Soltani (Alireza.Soltani at dartmouth.edu) and/or Tor Wager (Tor.D.Wager at dartmouth.edu). To apply, please visit the PBS’s Graduate Admissions page <https://pbs.dartmouth.edu/menufeature/graduate/graduate-admissions>
