Applications are invited for a 4-year full-time multidisciplinar PhD  Studentship in a collaborative project between the BCAM and  the BCBL.  
The focus will be on refinement and development of multivariate pattern analyses techniques and machine learning  classification approaches to study human brain function using fMRI data from different cognitive tasks involving multi-class semantic  categorization and learning of statistical regularities and the associated timecourses. Applicants should have an honours and a Masters degree in Mathematics, Computer Science, Engineering or another relevant area,  and have a strong interest in brain and cognitive sciences.
Strong  computational skills (preferable R and Python) are fundamental. Experience with functional MRI is not a requirement but the candidate should  demonstrate the willingness to learn it.
Applications must be submitted on-line at:
