Starting date between February 1 and June 1, 2020

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.

The positions are for persons interested in color vision, ranging from low-level
aspects such as luminance, to color constancy and color categories. We try
to use complex natural (or virtual) environments as much as possible.
Methods include psychophysical experiments, deep learning, neuroimaging, 
eye tracking and the study of behavior in Virtual Reality. 

Recent work from my lab on these topics can be found here: 
A recent review of some of this work is given in
Witzel, C. & Gegenfurtner, K.R. (2018) 
Color perception: objects, constancy, and categories. 
Annual Review of Vision Science, 4, 475-499.

Both positions are initially for 2 years, but can be extended upon
successful renewal of funding.

Applications should be sent by email to Karl Gegenfurtner 
(gegenfurtner at uni-giessen.de) before December 6, 2019. Informal inquiries are highly
encouraged. 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.
