  The position, which will start in April 2005, is part of the European 
Project CyberWalk, in which four renowned European Universities in the 
areas of Experimental Psychology, Computer Sciences, and Engineering 
collaborate to develop an omni-directional treadmill to allow 
unconstrained walking in virtual environments. Under the supervision of 
Dr. Marc Ernst and Prof. Heinrich Bülthoff, the scientific part of our 
institute in this project is to form a better understanding of the 
multimodal aspects of perception while interacting with the 
  The project will explore the interplay between perception and action 
in humans using a variety of psychophysical and neuropsychological 
techniques. For this we have available high-fidelity virtual 
environments and a sensorimotor lab with several force feedback devices 
and tracking systems.
  Expertise in any of the above techniques and some programming skills 
is an advantage but not required. The successful candidates should have 
a background in Psychology, Computer Sciences, Physics, Biology, or a 
related field. Preference will be given to candidates that have 
conducted psychophysical work.
  The successful candidates will join a dynamic and interdisciplinary 
group of scientists performing cutting-edge research on human 
multimodal perception, computer vision, and human-computer interaction.
