New postdoc position available at University of Málaga

The Causal Cognition Group (CCG) is offering a full-time postdoctoral research position co-funded by two research grants: One of them is associated with a research project headed by David Luque at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) (Spain), and the other is associated with a research project headed by Pedro Luis Cobos at Universidad de Málaga (UMA) (Spain) [please note that the workplace will be at UMA]. Candidates will have to concurrently apply for two part-time positions, each one offered by each university. In other terms, we will not consider applications for only one university because we will only choose a single candidate for both positions. Each university has its own website with information about procedure, requirements, deadlines, documents, etc.

The new postdoctoral researcher will focus her/his research on the electrophysiological signatures of reward and/or avoidance learning, and their possible interrelationships with other factors such as attention and uncertainty avoidance. This project is a continuation of previous successful research that you can check for more detailed information [see Luque et al. (2017) and Flores et al. (2018)]. The project is part of a collaborative research effort of the CCG research team with David Luque at UAM, but also with Bram Vervlie (UK Leuven) and Mike Le Pelley (UNSW Sydney).

The expected time frame is one year with a possible extension to another.

We are interested in candidates with a high level of independence, familiarity with EEG, as well as computing tools (Python/Matlab). Candidates should demonstrate a convincing publication record.

We expect the job starting date to be January 1st, 2020.

IMPORTANT: The curriculum vitae should include a cover letter/statement describing your research interests (4000 characters max), and contact details for two referees (we’ll contact them if short-listed). Please, note that the deadline to apply for the UMA position is 8 November 2019.

Short-listed candidates will be interviewed during the first week of December (online).
