Two post-doctoral research associate positions are available to work in a newly established interdisciplinary Research Centre on Decision Making in an Unstable World, bringing together the Schools of Experimental Psychology, Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Bristol.

Two post-doctoral research associate positions are available to work in a newly established interdisciplinary Research Centre on Decision-Making in an Unstable World, bringing together the Schools of Experimental Psychology, Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Bristol.

The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council UK (EPSRC) has awarded a four-year, £1.6million, grant to establish the Centre, which will build on current world-class research on decision-making which is carried out throughout the University. We will carry out experiments with human volunteers and build models to understand how decisions are made. The resulting models will then be applied to a range of real life problems.

Applicants should have a strong desire to carry out interdisciplinary research combining mathematical and computational modelling with experimental research on humans. One position is a Research Assistant/Associate in Human Experimental Research in Decision-making, and the other is a Research Assistant/Associate in Mathematical and Computational Research in Decision-making. Candidates should have, or expect to obtain, a PhD in a relevant topic.

For further information, please visit the project homepage. Informal enquiries are encouraged and should be made to Dr David Leslie or Prof Iain Gilchrist.
