Post-doctoral position available

Enhancing Intuitive Decision Making through Implicit Learning

We are looking for a post-doctoral researcher to contribute to a new ONR funded project that will use computational modeling and fMRI to examine intuitive decision making.  Using our PINNACLE framework, we will build computational simulation models of cognitive processing that depends on interactions between implicit and explicit knowledge.  These will be used in conjunction with fMRI data collection to test and expand the cognitive models.  The overarching goal is to use the cognitive neuroscience of memory systems to identify conditions in which both types of memory can be optimally applied in support of decision processes.

Requirements: expertise in either cognitive modeling or fMRI design and analysis.  Experience in both a plus.

Funding is available through at least June 2017.

Posted March 17, 2014.  Applications will be reviewed until the position is filled.
