Starting date: ideally between August and October, 2018

One postdoctoral position and one PhD fellowship are available in Giessen, 
Germany. The two successful candidates will join the group of Karl 
Gegenfurtner at the Psychology Department of Giessen University. The lab 
offers excellent facilities for studying visual perception and motor control. 
We are part of a larger research group on perception and action with excellent
links to scientists within Europe and world wide (http://www.sfb-perception.de). 
The group offers a stimulating, multi-national and multi-disciplinary research 
environment for young scientists  (http://www.allpsych.uni-giessen.de). Giessen
is a small university town, located just 60 km north of Frankfurt, right at the center 
of Germany.

One of the positions will be filled with a person interested in color vision,
especially in the use of color information in natural (or virtual) environments. 
The other position is for someone interested in eye (and possibly body) movements
for working out the role of eye movements in visual perception. Recent work from
my lab on these topics can be found here: http://www.allpsych.uni-giessen.de/karl/articles.html

The PhD studentship is for 3 years, the PostDoc position is initially for 2 years.
Methods could include psychophysical experiments, deep learning, neuroimaging, 
eye tracking and the study of behavior in Virtual Reality. 

Applications should be sent by email to Karl Gegenfurtner 
(gegenfurtner at uni-giessen.de) before May 30, 2018. Informal inquiries are highly
encouraged, and I will be available at VSS for meetings with interested candidates.
Full applications should include a CV, a statement of research interests, and the 
names of up to 3 people who could write a letter of reference.
