(01) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Researcher: Neural Mechanisms of Generalisation and Novel Inference

As a postdoctoral researcher, you will study the role of neural signals in the learning and inference of novel meaning for language. Compositionality is fundamental to adaptive behaviour in different cognitive domains (e.g. language, vision, memory and action planning). The human ability to compose complex representations from basic building blocks depends critically on abstract, generalisable knowledge, and implicates the hippocampus and medial prefrontal cortex. What are the neurocomputational mechanisms that underlie inference and generation of the meaning of new words? Are they shared across cognitive domains? If yes, how? The project aims to advance our knowledge of the brain mechanisms of flexible and efficient behaviour, as well as shared inferential mechanisms across cognitive domains.

Deadline : 15 June 2022
