As part of a Wellcome Trust funded new research project on maladaptive thinking in depression, two postdoctoral positions are available.
The job postings are here.
The focus of the postdoctoral positions will be to combine cognitive probes with computational modelling and MEG imaging to better understand how affective biases arise, and how affective events results in emotional experience.
Relevant examples of related work are:

- Huys and Browning 2021 – A Computational View on the Nature of Reward and Value in Anhedonia
- Huys et al., 2015 PNAS – The interplay of approximate planning strategies
- Rutledge et al., 2017 JAMA Psych – Association of Neural and Emotional Impacts of Reward Prediction Errors With Major Depression
Do get in touch with Quentin Huys if you would like to discuss this.
