Join the Lab


Are you interested in working at the intersection of decision and affective neuroscience?

Do you want to develop computational models of decision making and subjective feelings and use neuroimaging and smartphones to explore the causes of mood disorders like depression? We are looking for you!

Predoctoral applicants. Students can apply to the PhD program in the Department of Psychology at Yale University. If you are interested in working in the lab, email Robb to discuss possibilities for PhD research and include your CV. Application details are available here. (Deadline 1 December)

Postdoctoral applicants. Email Robb to discuss possibilities, even if you are not finishing your PhD until next year, and include your CV. Applying for postdoctoral fellowships can take time, and it's never too early to start thinking about what you want to work on next. Ideal applicants might have computational or clinical backgrounds or extensive experience with decision or affective neuroscience research. Applicants should be interested in contributing to the emerging field of computational psychiatry. There are many possible sources of funding, most of which have deadlines up to one year in advance of starting the project. A few of the potential funding sources include:

Human Frontier Science Program Long-Term Fellowships (Deadline August)
Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellowships (Deadlines November and April)
EU Marie Curie Fellowships (Deadline September)
NIH Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Individual Postdoctoral Fellowship (Deadlines April, August, December)
