The RTG Computational Cognition aims at reintegrating Cognitive Science and
Artificial Intelligence. PhD students of the RTG will be educated in both
subjects in order to combine the findings of these fields and thus to get a
better understanding of human and machine intelligence. Research fields
involved in the RTG are Neuroinformatics, Neurobiopsychology, Bio-Inspired
Computer Vision, Knowledge-Based Systems, Cognitive Natural Language
Processing & Communication, Cognitive Modeling, Artificial Intelligence,
Psycho/Neurolinguistics, Computational Linguistics and Cognitive Computing.
The RTG will focus on the integration of two research fields and has a
focus on machine learning, deep learning and dynamical systems, computer
vision combined with experimental methods including EEG and Eye tracking.
Detailed information on the core areas of the offered PhD projects can be
obtained from the spokesmen of the RTG, Prof. Dr. Gordon Pipa
(gpipa at uni-osnabrueck.de) and Prof. Dr. Peter König
(pkoenig at uni-osnabrueck.de). 
The RTG will be incorporated into the Cognitive Science PhD program founded
in 2002. PhD students of the RTG will take advantage of an interdisciplinary
environment, which nevertheless focuses on a common research topic and
offers a broad range of methodological synergies between the projects. 

Required Qualifications: 
Applicants are expected to have an academic degree (Master/Diploma),
experience in at least one of the domains listed above, proven experience in
interdisciplinary work as well as a good command of the English language. 
Osnabrück University has been certified as a family-friendly university
committed to helping working/studying parents and carers balance their
