second year. The position is funded through a scholarship by the 

The successful applicant will establish a lab for EEG recordings to 
complement the Department's methodological repertoire (e.g., 
electrophysiology, eye-tracking, psychophysics, fMRI, modeling). 
Experience in setting up and operating EEG equipment as well as in 
analyzing the resulting data with state-of-the-art analysis techniques 
are essential. The ideal candidate has a background in physics or 
related discipline and experience and willingness to participate in the 
department's teaching activities. The applicant needs to be able to work 
and pursue scientific questions with a high degree of independence. 
Since close methodological and conceptual interactions with other 
research at the department are expected, the applicant should express

attention, object recognition, crossmodal interactions, computational 
models of vision, or decision-making. Formal prerequisites include a PhD 
or equivalent degree.

The department provides lab-space designed specifically for EEG 
recordings (including electrical shielding, DC lighting, acoustic 
isolation, etc.) as well as funding for the acquisition of an EEG 
recording setup and related equipment. Provided successful acquisition 
of additional funding, an extension beyond the initial 1 or 2-year 
period is possible. Additional information on the research of the
