Apply NOW: PostDoc position (up to 6yrs) at the Scene Grammar Lab, Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany

A full-time PostDoc position will be available in the Scene Grammar Lab <http://www.scenegrammarlab.com/> of Melissa Vo at the Goethe University <http://www.uni-frankfurt.de/en> in Frankfurt, Germany.
Initial appointment will be for one year with the option to renew up to 6 years.
Preferred starting date: April 2019

The lab’s core research areas include top-down guidance in scene search, neural representation and development of scene knowledge, as well as action-perception interactions in real-world scenarios. This is the complicated way of saying that we really LIKE SCENES and all that comes with it! We use a variety of methods, including psychophysics, stationary, real-world and VR eye-tracking, as well as EEG. Most importantly, you would be joining a super enthusiastic, fun and warm-hearted team of great minds and personalities here in the lab. 

We are seeking a highly qualified PostDoc with a doctorate in a relevant field (e.g., Psychology, Neuroscience, Computer Vision, Cognitive Science, ...) and shared interests in the core research areas described above. The researcher should ideally have extensive experience with eye tracking and/or EEG/MEG methodology and/or computational modeling; experience with developmental studies is also welcome but not required. 

Since this is a University position, it comes with 4SWS of teaching BSc/MSc, which at the Goethe University translates to teaching 4 (identical) seminars to 4 different groups of BSc students (= easy), or by offering more individualised courses to either BSc or MSc (= interesting); or a mixture of both (= FUN!). All teaching done by our group is in English, but knowing how to pronounce “DANKESCHÖN” would certainly be a plus. The big PRO of this position is that it is NOT dependent on external funding, there’s no fixed research agenda and therefore you can be bold and creative in what you would want to work on in our lab with a perspective to stay up to 6 years. 

Located at the heart of Europe, Frankfurt (am Main) is one of the most international cities in Germany with a vibrant and international community of cognitive neuroscientists, cognitive psychologists, computational modelers, and vision scientists. The Goethe University Frankfurt, offers a wide variety of academic programs and numerous research facilities. In addition, Frankfurt has become a hub for cognitive science/neuroscience in Germany and is home to renowned research institutes such as the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research <http://www.brain.mpg.de/home.html>, the Ernst Strüngmann Institute (ESI) <http://www.esi-frankfurt.de/> for Neuroscience in Cooperation with Max Planck Society, the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies (FIAS) <http://fias.uni-frankfurt.de/>, and the newly founded Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics <https://www.mpg.de/6971390/empirische_aesthetik>. 

Interested candidates should send a CV, a brief statement of research interests, and the names and contact details of at least two academic references to mlvo at psych.uni-frankfurt.de <mailto:mlvo at psych.uni-frankfurt.de> preferably before January 13th 2019, but later applications will be considered until the position is filled. 

I look forward to hearing from you.
Happy holidays!
