A postdoc position available at the Department of Psychology of LMU
Munich (labs of Prof. Dr. Thomas Geyer/ Zhuanghua Shi)
One post-doctoral position is available at the Department of Psychology
of Ludwig Maximilian University Munich/ Germany (chair of General and
Experimental Psychology; chair holder: Prof. Dr. Hermann Müller). The
position is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), available
for a period of 3 years.
Your research topic. In everyday scenes, searched-for targets do not
appear in isolation, but are consistently encountered within stable
spatial arrangements of distractor objects. In our labs, we focus much
on this ‘context-based guidance’ of search using a variety of – visual
and tactile – search tasks. In the postdoc project, we will specifically
investigate visual-tactile crossmodal plasticity in spatial context
learning by employing behavioural and neuroscience methods, in addition
to statistical (e.g., drift-diffusion) modeling.
Your skills. You should have an excellent PhD degree, or equivalent (or
be currently working towards one) in the field of cognitive
neuroscience. Further, you should demonstrate a solid interest in
research on selective attention, crossmodal information processing, and
statistical learning, ideally documented by your publication(s).
Advanced skills in experimental and data analysis programming with
MATLAB and R are essential for the postdoc position. Experience with
neuroscience techniques, in particular: EEG/ ERP as well as Brain Vision
Analyzer are highly desirable.
Your benefits.The chair of General and Experimental Psychology of LMU
Munich is one of the largest psychological chairs in Germany. Currently,
there are ca. 25-30 collaborators with backgrounds in different fields
in cognitive neuroscience: behavioral techniques, mathematical modeling,
biological psychology (i.e., EEG, TMS, tDCS, fMRI), and the experimental
investigation of neuropsychological/ neuropsychiatric patients. Further,
the chair hosts an international MSc program in "Neuro-Cognitive
Psychology", attracting some 20 highly motivated and clever (i.e.,
'elite') students per annum. Thus, the scientific environment of the
postdoc position is extremely international,
methodologically-multifaceted, and stimulating.
Your application.Please send a completed application form: a cover
letter detailing your research experience and interests, a C.V., and two
academic references electronically to Prof. Dr. Thomas Geyer
(geyer at lmu.de; website: www.psy.lmu.de/exp). The closing date for
applications is September 14th, 2018. Shortlisted candidates will be
invited for an interview (in the second half of September). LMU Munich
is an equal opportunity employer. Given equivalent qualifications,
applications by women and disabled persons will be preferred. Payment
will follow German salary scale TVL-E13.
