Applicants with any relevant background (e.g. optometry, psychology, neuroscience, medical engineering) are invited to apply. Preferably, applicants should have a master's degree (optionally doctoral degree), but excellent candidates with a bachelor's degree will also be considered.

** statistics, scientific writing, project management

We are an interdisciplinary lab with a long track record in developing and refining techniques for visual performance testing and we conduct research in various fields of vision science, linking basic research and clinical applications with a methodological focus on human electrophysiology, psychophysics, and eye movements. Recently, we moved to new well-equipped state-of-the- art facilities.

The position (part-time 50 %) is offered for 2 years fixed term.
