The Neuroeconomics Group (Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience)
The job involves:
- working under the direct supervision of Prof. Vasily Klucharev.
- participants are encouraged to pursue their own research in parallel with working on the Group's research projects, e.g.:
o Neuroeconomics and social influence, including neuroscience of persuasion, cognitive dissonance, etc.
o Neurobiology of cognitive dissonance, trust and risk-taking, temporal discounting, etc.
- writing research papers for international peer-reviewed journals in co-authorship with the members of the Centre for Cognition & Decision Making
- participation in organization of the events and other contribution to the Lab’s development
- public presentations of candidate’s own research to the researchers in the field and the broader academic community
- some teaching is encouraged, though not required.
Our group actively cooperates with École des Neurosciences Paris Île de France. The Group offers access to its multi-channel EEG, navigated TMS-EEG, behavioral, eye-tracking equipment, MEG, fMRI facilities. The Centre particularly encourage publishing results in international peer-reviewed journals, as well as teaching and other forms of scientific contribution to the Group and the Centre’s development. At the end of the contract there is a possibility to apply for a tenure-track position at HSE.
