Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship position available.

We seek a Post-Doctoral Research Associate for a 3 year Human Frontiers in Science funded project between Aldo Faisal (Imperial College London), Carlos Ribeiro (Champalimaud Institute, Lisbon) and Michael Dickinson (University of Washington, Seattle) investigating the interplay between genes, computation and behavior in value-based decision making of Drosophila melanogaster - focusing on mechanisms and algorithms of decision making during foraging.

We are seeking candidates with experience in computational neuroscience/neuroeconomics/foraging theory or psychophysics/animal behavior experiments and related disciplines such as theoretical physics and data-rich mathematical modeling. Strong analytical skills (Matlab) are essential. The post will be based in London and last up to 36 months. Applicants should have (or soon to be awarded) a Ph.D. in a discipline relevant to the project and publications in high-quality journals. Informal enquiries may be addressed to Dr A Aldo Faisal, Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.
