multimodal perception and action.
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

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

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.
