Job no: 0044562


Work type: Fixed Term


Location: Parkville


Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences
Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences

 

Salary: $98,775 - $117,290 p.a. plus 17% superannuation

 

The Complex Human Data Hub (CHDH) in the School of Psychological Sciences at the University of Melbourne, is seeking a research associate for a full-time three-year fixed-term position involving the mathematical and computational study of human cognition. This full-time research-only position is not centred around a particular project, so self-starting scientists with an independent set of research interests are preferred.

 

Research in the CHDH focuses on the use of quantitative and/or "big data" tools in cognitive science. Representative topics include information transmission, cultural and linguistic evolution, induction, decision-making, development, memory, or categorisation. Representative frameworks include Bayesian models, neural networks, reaction time modelling, experience sampling, or the use of large-scale data (e.g. twitter, word associations, etc). We are looking for an excellent early career researcher with experience and interest in any subset of these topics and approaches.

 

Excellent candidates will have a PhD in cognitive science, statistics, or a related discipline, strong quantitative and computational skills, and some familiarity with psychology and experimental design.

 

Please direct all enquiries to the primary supervisor, Amy Perfors amy.perfors@unimelb.edu.au

 

Close date: 15 Jan 2018
