The candidate will combine methods from computational modeling, behavioural economics and cognitive sciences to address how humans learn to make value-based decisions. The ideal candidate will have good programming skills. A non-exhaustive lists of specific topics includes: comparing experience-based and description-based decisions: a memory-based account of value-based decision-making; social reinforcement learning. Most internships will implicate an experimental part, however, occasionally, we will consider pure theoretical (simulation-based) projects.
