Dear all,

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.

Best regards,
Lars Schwabe
