A PhD (E 13 TV-L, 65%) or postdoctoral (E 13 TV-L) position is available at the Technical University of Chemnitz (Germany) in the Department of Computer Science. The position is funded initially for two years, which is renewable pending availability of future funds. Starting date is Mai 2012 or later.

The research position is part of the research network “Neuro-cognitive mechanisms of conscious and unconscious visual perception” (http://www.uni-ulm.de/unbewusst/index.htm). In this project we aim to build neural models of learning object recognition in the human brain and elucidate the role of reentrant processing for visual masking and stimulus encoding. Among other scientists in the network, we will cooperate with Niko Busch in the Berlin School of Mind and Brain, who will perform experimental studies of visual masking.

The candidate should have interest in developing neurocomputational systems and learning rules, particularly with respect to data in the neurosciences and psychology. Good programming experience and solid english language skills are essential.

The university is an equal opportunity employer. Women are encouraged to apply. Disabled applicants will receive priority in case they have equal qualifications.

Chemnitz is the third-largest city of the state of Saxony and close to scenic mountains. Major cities nearby are Leipzig and Dresden with a rich tradition of music and culture.

Applications should be sent by email (preferably in PDF format) to (fred.hamker at informatik.tu-chemnitz.de) as soon as possible. Applications shall be sent by March 1st, but later applications will be considered until the position is filled.
