Research Fellow – Human Motion Sequencing
Deadline 8th July 2020
Applications are invited for a Research Fellow in the Max Planck UCL Centre for Computational Psychiatry and Ageing Research in the context of the ERC-funded research project “Action selection under threat – the complex control of human defence” led by Dr Dominik Bach.
The goal is to understand the cognitive-computational control of human motor behaviour under acute, immediate threat. We investigate this in an immersive virtual reality (VR) environment, in which people can move to avoid various threats. The candidate will conduct full-body motion capture recordings, recover kinematics and dynamics, and structure the ensuing trajectories using hierarchical statistical models incorporating movement mechanics.

Research Fellow – Neural mechanisms underpinning self-awareness and metacognition
Deadline – 29th July 2020
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position in the MetaLab at University College London. The project will combine state-of-the-art neuroimaging techniques (fMRI, MEG) with theoretical and computational modeling to investigate the neural mechanisms underpinning self-awareness and metacognition.
The post holder will undertake high quality research combining human neuroimaging and psychophysics with advanced analysis techniques involving machine learning. The project will involve developing and testing computational models at the interface of social cognition and metacognition and evaluating these against behavioural and/or neural data.
