I have an opening for a PhD position in “Data-driven Human Behaviour
Modeling” at the intersection of computational neuroscience, machine
leaning, and ubiquitous computing.
We are operating a laboratory with many large displays in order to
characterize how team members interact in group-based decision making,
i. e. we record all kinds of human-computer interactions, body and
eye-motions, and physiological signals such as EEG. The goal is to
improve IT support for group-based decision making such as in, e. g., a
situation room. In your work, you will explore if neuroscience-based
models (for perception, attention, memory, and decision-making) can
outperform plain statistical and rule-based models (the state-of-the-art
in this field) in terms of predictive power.
The ideal candidate has a background in computer science, electrical
engineering, mathematics, psychology, or a related field. Good
programming skills are mandatory.
The University of Rostock (founded 1419) is located at the baltic coast,
its computer science and electrical engineering dept is high-ranked in
Germany, and it provides an excellent environment to foster the
interaction of life science and engineering. The position is available
immediately. Please send your application material via email to
lars.schwabe at uni-rostock.de. We consider all applications not sent later
than March 13. Please feel free to contact me
(lars.schwabe at uni-rostock.de) if you have questions.
