Applications are invited for a Ph. D. student
to work on a DFG funded project under the supervision of 
Dr. Knut Drewing and Prof. Karl R. Gegenfurtner. 

In the research project we will investigate the interplay of exploratory movements and perception in
active touch, develop formal models on motor control and information processing
in haptic perception, and study the interaction of active touch with vision.

The postholder will be responsible for setting-up laboratory experiments for motor and perceptual
measurements, recruiting and testing participants, analyzing data, and writing-up results. 
Experiments will be conducted within a state-of-the art visuo-haptic virtual reality setup.

Applications are invited from candidates with a higher degree (diploma or MS) in subjects related to
aspects of neuroscience including psychology, computing, and engineering.
Applicants should have knowledge and skills in at least one of the following
areas: psychophysics; computer programming; experimental psychology. Applicants

The department of psychology (http://www.allpsych.uni-giessen.de/) offers a stimulating, multi-national and
multi-disciplinary research environment for young scientists. The department
has a strong research focus on the interaction of perception and action (in particular
sensorimotor integration, eye movements). Further main research topics in the
department are color vision and image processing.
