PHD POSITION: PREDICTIVE REPRESENTATIONS IN ACTION
PERCEPTION (University of Tuebingen, Germany)
=================================================

For the newly founded Bernstein Center for 'Neural
Mechanisms of Perceptual Inference' at the University
of Tuebingen (Germany) we announce a PhD position at
the Section for Computational Sensomotorics at the
Center for Integrative Neurosciences and the Hertie
Institute for Clinical Brain Research at the University of
Tuebingen. The position is available immediately, with a
maximum duration of 3 years.

The project aims at the development and testing
of neural and statistical predictive models for the
processing of visual action stimuli in comparison
with physiological, behavioral and imaging data, and
data from neurological patients.

Our group has worked extensively on neural
mechanisms of body motion perception, combining
modeling, machine learning, and different
experimental techniques.

It is part  of the Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain
Science, one of the leading European institutions in
Clinical Neuroscience and of the Excellence Center for
Integrative Neuroscience (CIN), that hosts more than
40 experimental and theoretical groups at the
University and the Max Planck Institute for
Biological Cybernetics. The Bernstein Center hosts
in total 15 collaborative projects, realized in close
collaboration between theoretical neuroscientists and
experimenters representing different theoretical and
experimental approaches.

Ideal candidates should have the following
qualifications:
* Masters degree in Computer Science,
   Electrical Engineering, Physics, or
   related fields
* programming experience (Matlab, C/C++, ...)
* Knowledge about visual perception, motor control,
   neural modeling, and machine learning
* English speaking and writing skills.

Committed to Equal Opportunities.
