[Comp-neuro] Postdoc position in decision neuroscience: Multi-site project

Applications are invited for a 3-year postdoctoral research position in the
Kelly lab in University College Dublin, to work on a collaborative
Tripartite project on the neural mechanisms of perceptual decision making,
jointly funded by Science Foundation Ireland, HSC-Northern Ireland and the
U.S. National Institute of Mental Health.

The overall, multi-site project involves non-human primate neurophysiology
(Michael Shadlen in Columbia University), intracranial human EEG (Stephan
Bickel in Northwell-Hofstra School of Medicine), biologically based neural
network modelling (KongFatt Wong-Lin, Ulster University), human fMRI
(Redmond O’Connell in Trinity College Dublin) and human EEG (Simon Kelly in
UCD), with several planned visits and regular interactions among labs, and
diverse skill-building opportunities. The primary focus of the postdoc
position in UCD is to contribute insights using human EEG, in close
alignment with, and with contributions to, the experiments conducted in
other modalities and at the other sites.

A key focus of the project is to understand the role of neural
representations of cumulative evidence that are abstracted from specific
motor requirements, and to find out where and how such representations are
computed in the human and non-human primate brains.

Interested candidates should submit a brief research statement and CV
including publications through the UCD job vacancies site (
https://www.ucd.ie/workatucd/jobs/ – search for job ref number 012810).
Informal enquiries can be directed to Simon (simon.kelly at ucd.ie).
Candidates should explain in their statement how their own research
interests fit with those of the Kelly lab and why they are suited to this
particular multi-site neuroscience project.

The deadline for submitting applications is Dec 16 2020, and shortlisting
and interviews will take place shortly after that. It is hoped that the
candidate can start on this project early in the new year.
