PhD Position in Decision Neuroscience
at Erasmus University Rotterdam

Reference: ERIM PhD 2020 RSM MKT DN1

At the Erasmus Center for Neuroeconomics<> we seek outstanding applicants whose research interests lie at the intersection of psychology, economics, marketing and neuroscience and who are interested in studying the brain mechanisms that underlie judgement and decision-making. Particular interests of our group are the neural underpinnings of persuasive messaging, social influences on choice, the role of affect in decision-making and (dis)honesty. In particular, we focus on linking neural measures obtained from individuals to real market-level choice data. However, candidates have a large say in the precise focus of their project.
Experience with EEG and/or fMRI is required for this position. Applicants who would be interested in applying neural data analysis to study (real-world) choice behaviour are particularly encouraged to apply.
Experience or interest in more advanced fMRI methods, such as multi-voxel pattern analysis (MVPA), representational similarity analysis (RSA), classification algorithms, prediction models, or multivariate approaches to EEG data analyses is a definite plus. However, candidates with a less technical focus and a more general interest in how neuroscience can inform decision-making are also encouraged to apply.
In addition to fMRI and EEG, we make use of eye-tracking, facial coding, and behavioural measures in our research.
Interested candidates can apply through the ERIM website<>. Application deadline January 15, 2021. For more information about this position, please contact Ale Smidts (asmidts'at', Maarten Boksem (mboksem'at', or Alex Genevsky (genevsky'at'
