Unit on Computational Decision Neuroscience (CDN)

Join the Lab

Join our team!

Postbaccalaureate fellows/summer students: If you are interested in joining our lab as an undergraduate or graduate summer student or postbac, please apply through the OITE Intramural Research Training Award (IRTA) Program or the OITE Sumer Internship Program. Email the lab or contact Dr. Lopez-Guzman once your application has been submitted.

Current projects in the lab focus heavily on decision-making mechanisms and the intersection between neuroscience, affective states, and psychiatry, so a strong interest in cognitive, systems or computational neuroscience is a plus. We also have several data analysis projects for which strong quantitative skills and ability to program are especially desired.

Prospective graduate students: Students interested in completing Ph.D. work in the lab can apply through the OITE Graduate Partnerships Program . If you are planning to apply for the upcoming cycle to work in the CDN lab, please contact Dr. Silvia Lopez-Guzman.

Prospective postdocs: We are looking for talented post-grads who hold a Ph.D., M.D., or M.D./Ph.D. in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, or a related field. We are especially interested in candidates who are enthusiastic, curious, and have excellent analytical, programming, and communication skills. Experience in human brain imaging is a plus. Please contact Dr. Lopez-Guzman if you are interested in doing a postdoc in the CDN lab.
