AMPC Abstract Submission

A friendly reminder to please submit your abstracts for the upcoming AMPC conference! The deadline was January 8th, but because that has snuck up on us a bit, we are pushing it back till January 15th. 

** If you turn them in later than that we cannot promise that we will be able to fit them into the program. **

  • Instructions for submitting abstracts:
    • Email abstracts to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
    • Put "AMPC abstract" in the subject line.

  • What:
    • Abstracts should be between 1/2 to 1 page, 2 pages maximum.
    • Plain text or LaTeX preferred (include LaTeX source + PDF), though Word/OpenOffice is okay.
    • Include a co-author list and star the name of the person presenting the talk.
    • List institutional affiliations for all authors (Elizabeth Arkham institute accepted at the discretion of the organising committee).

Thank you to everyone who has submitted one so far.

(PS. On another note, there has been a delay on setting up payment of registration fees. The reason for the delay is a long and darkly amusing tale, involving nefarious bureaucrats and tangles of red tape, but rest assured we WILL claim your money at some point.  The fees will be $100 for non-students and $50 for students for the conference registration, and $100 for the conference dinner. Late fees will be an extra $50, but the late fee date will be modified generously depending on how long it takes us to set it up in the first place.)

Postdoctoral Position in Cognitive Psychology

Salary Level A: A$74,129 - A$79,288 per year (plus 9% employer superannuation and leave loading) (1 AU$ = approx. 1.04 US$)

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Fellow (Cognitive Psychology) in the School of Psychology at UNSW. The successful applicant will undertake work on experimental and cognitive modelling approaches to the study of decision making. The research is funded by an Australian Research Council Grant held jointly by Associate Professor Ben Newell (School of Psychology, University of New South Wales, Sydney) and Professor Michael Lee (Department of Cognitive Sciences, University of California, Irvine).

The Fellow will be based in Ben Newell's Lab at UNSW in Sydney but there will also be opportunities for working visits to Professor Lee's lab in UC Irvine during the period of employment. The position offers an invaluable opportunity to join an international team committed to high quality research into the cognitive mechanisms underlying decision making.

Applicants must have completed (or be near completion of) a PhD in Psychology, Cognitive Sciences, Decision Sciences or related discipline; high level skills in experimental design, statistical analysis; strong computational skills; the ability to work independently and as a member of a team. Knowledge of the judgment and decision making literature is desirable.

This is a full-time position fixed term for 1 year, with possibility of a 1 year extension.

Applicants should address the selection criteria found within the position description, in their online application.

For further information about the position, please contact the Associate Professor Ben Newell, telephone (61 2) 9385 1606 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
