Marie Curie (ITN) Early Stage Researcher (Fixed Term)
An early stage researcher position is available to work in Computational Cognitive Neuroscience at the Adaptive Brain Lab . The project forms part of the Marie Curie Action ¿ Innovative Training Network: DyViTo and aims to uncover how the brain learns to represent objects and make optimal perceptual decisions. We aim to shed light on how we perceive 3D shapes, and learn to assign them into meaningful categories. The successful applicant will combine behavioural paradigms, with state-of-the-art brain imaging and computational modeling (including deep learning approaches for visual recognition). They will receive multi-disciplinary research training at the interface between psychology, neuroscience, computer science, engineering and industrial design.
