The lab of Fred Hamker at Chemnitz University of Technology is offering a PhD Position in Computational Neuroscience (Visual Attention Models). The position is for three years, starting as soon as possible. 

The research position is funded by a DFG research grant and focuses on the modelling of RF dynamics during attention and eye movements.

For the formal job search in german, please refer to: https://www.tu-chemnitz.de/verwaltung/personal/stellen/257030_1_EPu.php <https://www.tu-chemnitz.de/verwaltung/personal/stellen/257030_1_EPu.php>

German language skills are not required, but the willingness to learn German would be useful. Applications should be sent by email (preferably in PDF format) to (fred.hamker at informatik.tu-chemnitz.de <mailto:fred.hamker at informatik.tu-chemnitz.de>) as soon as possible. Applications will be considered until the position is filled.

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