Postdoc at Center for Adaptive Rationality
Wednesday, 17 February 2016 09:54

The Center for Adaptive Rationality (ARC) is offering 1 Postdoctoral fellowship (2 years +1) with a commitment of 39 hours per week (E 14 TVöD). The center is located at the prestigious Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Berlin, Germany. The position is available from June 2016 onward; later start dates are possible to a limited degree.

Candidates should be interested in decision-making and learning in a social context, with a particular focus on modeling dynamic behavior. Desired research interest includes the role of social norms and prior expectations on social decision-making.

The Center for Adaptive Rationality takes an interdisciplinary approach to cognitive science and decision-making. Candidates should be interested in using behavioral, computational and/or neuroscientific methods to study social decision-making and social learning. The project takes an interdisciplinary approach and candidates may have training in psychology, computer science, neuroscience, economics or related disciplines.

Candidates must have a PhD. Prior experience with cognitive modeling or behavioral game theory is highly recommended. The project will involve larger on-line studies as well smaller behavioral and neuro-imaging studies. The position is part of a larger European project funded by an ORA grant. It involves collaboration with Leiden University (Dr. Anna van Duijvenvoorde) and UCL (prof. Essi Viding). The candidate is expected to support the development and implementation of the project at these sites, but has no further teaching requirements.

The Max Planck Institute for Human Development ( offers an excellent infrastructure including support staff and equipment for conducting experiments (e.g., behavioral laboratory, fMRI, EEG, eye tracking). It provides an international research environment, with English being the working language.

The Max Planck Society is committed to employing more handicapped individuals and especially encourages them to apply. The Max-Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.

The Postdoctoral Fellowship is for two years (a 1-year extension is possible). Applications (consisting of a cover letter describing your research interests, a curriculum vitae, up to five reprints, and two letters of recommendation) should be sent as a single PDF file, with your name as the file name, to Wouter van den Bos ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
