1-year PostDoc position 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 Võ at the Goethe University <http://www.uni-frankfurt.de/en> in Frankfurt, Germany.
Initial appointment will be for one year.
Preferred starting date: *November 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. Recently we have begun to increase our efforts to become even more “real” by using VR to look at attentional and perceptual processes during real-world explorations.

We are now 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 in 3D, i.e. eye tracking in VR and/or in the real world; solid experience with programming in unity is also welcome but not required. 

This position is purely focused on research with no teaching load, but instead will be performed as part of a team together with the local art and design university “Hochschule für Gestaltung <http://www.hfg-offenbach.de/>”, who will provide the 3D scenarios used for the more applied questions of this research project.

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>.

I especially want to encourage young female scientists to apply for this position! Please apply even if you think you might not be 100% suited… we tend to think that even if it isn't true ;o)

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 *October 1st 2019, but later applications will be considered until the position is filled. 

I look forward to hearing from you!

Thanks for your consideration,
Melissa Võ
