Full-time post, fixed term for 12 months

Applications are invited for a researcher position to work on an project funded by the British Academy on 'Cognitive Models of Problem Gambling: Testing the Implicit-Learning Hypothesis'. This ambitious project aims to extend the CHREST (http://chrest.info) computational model so that it will simulate key phenomena in problem gambling. Problem gambling is gambling behaviour that produces negative consequences for the gambler, their family or the community. In spite of substantial empirical research, there are currently no detailed models of problem gambling.

The successful candidate will work under the direction of Prof F Gobet (fernand.gobet@brunel.ac.uk). S/he will have good knowledge of cognitive or clinical psychology, computer modelling, and programming. Experience in at least one of Java, C++, Lisp and/or Scheme is required.
