We are seeking a highly motivated Postdoc for a 2-year position at the Dept. of Experimental Psychology, Ghent University (Belgium). The position will be in the field of cognitive neuroscience in the context of an ERC starting grant investigating interactions between motivation, cognitive control, and memory processes.
