Postdoctoral position in reinforcement learning at Harvard University

My lab at Harvard University (Department of Psychology and Center for Brain Science) is recruiting a postdoctoral fellow to work in the area of reinforcement learning and decision making. The focus of this research is on structure learning: How does the brain discover the underlying structure of its environment, and use this structure to guide learning and decision making? To answer this question, we combine computational theory with behavioral and brain imaging experiments. We work primarily with human subjects, but the postdoc will have the opportunity to collaborate with several animal labs at Harvard.

For more information about the lab's research, please visit: http://web.mit.edu/sjgershm/www/

Start date: On or after July 1st, 2015.

Qualifications: Strong candidates will have experience with computational neuroscience, probability theory, and model-based analysis of brain imaging and behavioral data.

To apply: Candidates should send a CV and a research statement (not exceeding 2 pages) to Sam Gershman (gershman@fas.harvard.edu). Please arrange for 2 letters of reference to be sent to the same address.
