10 PhD Positions at CODE Network Across Europe

In an ambitious move to bridge gaps in our understanding of decision confidence, the Collaborative Network on Decision Confidence (CODE) has unveiled opportunities for 10 PhD candidates. Spanning 9 leading research laboratories across Europe, CODE endeavors to unravel the complex mechanisms behind decision-making confidence, a key player in social behavior, clinical outcomes, and technological trust.

Despite being a critical aspect of everyday decisions, from adjusting driving speeds in adverse weather to trusting automated systems, the foundations of decision confidence remain shrouded in mystery. This uncertainty limits the potential for real-world applications, such as educational enhancements and clinical treatments. CODE’s mission is to dismantle these barriers through a multidisciplinary approach, promising groundbreaking insights.

The PhD positions offer a unique chance for emerging scholars to dive deep into this fascinating field. Successful applicants will benefit from an interdisciplinary training environment, encompassing a broad spectrum of theories and methods. The program also promises rich opportunities for international collaboration and network-wide events, setting the stage for a thriving academic journey.
