Drs. Uri Maoz and Aaron Schurger, members of Chapman University’s Brain Institute, invite applications for two post-doctoral positions in the cognitive neuroscience of volition, beginning in the fall of 2019.
The two post-doctoral positions will be part of a large international project on the neuroscience and philosophy of free will, where 17 neuroscientists and philosophers from around the world will collaborate to explore the neural basis of volition, using experimental, theoretical and computational approaches. A list of the neuroscientists and philosophers closely collaborating on this project is available at http://www.neurophil-freewill.org/. The overarching focus of the project is the investigation of how the brain enables conscious, causal control of human behavior.
Chapman University’s Institute for Interdisciplinary Brain and Behavioral Sciences (The Brain Institute) comprises a network of interdisciplinary researchers specializing in the neuroscience of higher-level cognition—volition, consciousness, altered states of consciousness, and so on—from a mainly computational perspective. We thrive on communication, criticism, and stimulation, focused on the unification of research in the behavioral and brain sciences at the systems level, with an eye to clinical and useful applications, innovations with artificial intelligence, insights from neuropsychology, and philosophy of mind.
