PhD Position in Decision Neuroscience at Erasmus University Rotterdam

May 17, 2023
The Erasmus Center for Neuroeconomics ( seeks a highly motivated PhD student looking to study decision-making using neuroscience methods (fMRI or EEG). Strong applicants have backgrounds in (cognitive/social) psychology, (cognitive/social) neuroscience or neuroeconomics, and are looking to pursue careers as world-class academic researchers. At our Center, students define and execute their own projects in consultation with their advisers, and thus need creativity, self-direction, and a passion for scientific research. Researchers in our group work on a wide range of topics in social and cognitive neuroscience such as understanding the neurological basis of emotions and persuasive communication, social conformity, dishonesty, charitable giving and predicting population-level outcomes from neural data. Some experience with EEG and/or fMRI data analysis is required for this position. 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. Experience with, or at least affinity for programming, particularly in Python (or otherwise Matlab or R) is a must. For your application, we require a motivation letter, a CV, and the names of two references. It is not necessary to ask referents for letters at the application stage. Interested candidates can apply through the ERIM website (
