Laboratory of Neuroeconomics, Reward and Decision making, Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, Lyon, France

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position to study neuroeconomics, decision making, motivation and reward processing using model-based fMRI in healthy subjects and intra-cranial recordings in patients with epilepsy. The Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience is located in Lyon, a thriving university city. The institute hosts an interdisciplinary community with access to several brain imaging facilities, such as one research-dedicated Siemens scanner, one MEG, one simultaneous TEP-fMRI, EEG, TMS and other useful resources. The current project seeks a better understanding of the neurocomputational basis of social decision-making in humans. We will adopt a combination of interdisciplinary perspective, combining Bayesian models and behavioural experiments in humans to investigate the mechanisms of decision making processes in social context. Our main hypothesis is that when we are in an interactive social setting, our brain performs Bayesian inferences using probabilistic representations of other individuals’ intentions and cooperativeness. The project will be supervised by Dr. Jean-Claude Dreher. Funding is available for an initial period of 2 years, up to 3 years. Candidates, preferably with model-based fMRI experience and familiarity with computational models such as Bayesian inference and POMDP, should send their CV, statement of research interests and representative publications to: Jean-Claude Dreher, dreher@isc.cnrs.fr
