Postdoctoral Researcher position in computational cognitive science and at the interface of cognitive science and machine learning

The lab of Rava Azeredo da Silveira invites applications for Postdoctoral Researcher positions at ENS, Paris, and IOB, an associated institute of the University of Basel.

Research questions will be chosen from a range of topics including decision making, learning, and memory, with a particular focus on the structure of human inference, the nature of internal representations/latent variables, and behavioral variability. While the projects will be primarily theoretical, they will involve data analysis and may be complemented with behavioral experiments in the lab or carried out in collaboration with experimental labs.

Candidates with backgrounds in mathematics, statistics, artificial intelligence, physics, computer science, engineering, and psychology are welcome. Experience with data analysis and proficiency with numerical methods, in addition to familiarity with neuroscience topics and mathematical and statistical methods, are desirable. Equally desirable are a spirit of intellectual adventure, eagerness, and drive.

The positions will come with highly competitive work conditions and salaries.
