PhD/MA position available (social and decision neuroscience/neuroeconomics)


PhD/MA position available (social and decision neuroscience/neuroeconomics)


We are looking for a graduate student (PhD or MA program) to join the Queen’s Neuroeconomics Lab. The lab is based at Queen’s University, Ontario, Canada (Department of Psychology, the Department of Economics, and the Centre for Neuroscience Studies).


We study social behaviour and decision making in various domains (e.g. altruism, dietary behaviour, consumer choices). To better understand the mechanisms that drive decisions and social behaviour, we employ a variety of techniques (ranging from computer experiments, measures of eye-movements to imaging of brain structure and function) together with computational modelling approaches (e.g. multivariate pattern analysis [MVPA], drift diffusion models [DDMs]).



  • Planning and implementation of research projects and analysis of multimodal data (neuronal, physiological, and behavioural data) using computational modelling (e.g. MVPA, DDM)
  • Presentation of research results (in scientific journals, colloquia and conferences)


Requirements and Skills 

  • excellent bachelor and (if applicable) master in psychology, cognitive science, biology, computer science, behavioural economics or an equivalent discipline
  • high motivation and interest in interdisciplinary research
  • Of advantage (but NOT necessary) is a background in ANY of the following areas:
    • knowledge of any neuroscientific methods (fMRI, TMS, tDCS, EEG, MEG or NIRS) 
    • knowledge of eye-tracking
    • programming experience (e.g. Matlab, Python)
    • research experience or interest in the field of “decision making”, “decision neuroscience” or “social neuroscience” or “neuroeconomics”
    • solid background in statistical analysis


Please send your detailed application (a short statement of research interests, CV, transcripts, and references) to Dr. Anita Tusche (anita.tusche@queensu.ca). Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the positions have been filled.


For more information please contact: Dr. Anita Tusche (anita.tusche@queensu.ca)


I would appreciate it very much if you forward this announcement to interested candidates. 


Have a great week!


Best wishes,

Anita Tusche
