Current Vacancies

Research Fellow – Human Motion Sequencing

Deadline 24th June 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.
