PhD opening in the neural mechanisms of decision making @ University College Dublin (Ireland)

Applications are invited for a fully funded 4-year PhD position in the Cognitive Neural Systems lab ( ), led by Simon Kelly, to study the neural mechanisms of decision making. This position is part of a project funded by Science Foundation Ireland, which involves a combination of psychophysics, computational modelling, non-invasive electrophysiology of human brain and muscle, and analyses of existing single-cell neurophysiological data. The funded research is specifically focused on the impact of value (i.e., how much decision outcomes are worth) on the dynamics of decision formation in early sensory, decision, and motor areas of the brain.
To apply, submit a CV, short cover letter and contact information for at least two referees to Dr Simon Kelly ( ).
