Welcome to the Niv Lab!

We are hiring! We are looking for a scientist program manager for a new NIMH Conte center on latent cause inference and mental health. Please contact yael@princeton.edu if you are interested. Other than that, the Niv Lab is currently quite full and we are not actively searching for students, nor do we currently have open positions for postdocs.

The Niv Lab focuses on several distinct and inter-related lines of research related to understanding the computational basis of learning and decision making in the brain. We use behavior – and sometimes neural data – to constrain computational models of how experience changes future decisions and choices (i.e., learning), and we apply this understanding to understanding mental health conditions and tailoring their treatment.
