Sun Nov 17 14:30:53 -04 2019

A PhD position is available in the lab of Constantin Rothkopf 
(https://www.pip.tu-darmstadt.de/) at the Centre for Cognitive Science 
(https://www.tu-darmstadt.de/cogsci/) at Technical University Darmstadt. 
The lab investigates sequential decision making and control under 
uncertainty in humans, how we actively use our visual system to take 
decisions and guide actions. Our work often involves behavioral 
experiments measuring eye movements and developing computational models 
in tasks ranging from psychophysical detection tasks to catching balls, 
navigation in VR, or reasoning about physics. We offer a supportive and 
interdisciplinary environment based on scientific curiosity with local 
and international collaborations.

Candidates should have a Masters degree in cognitive science, computer 
science, psychology, neuroscience, or a related discipline. Preference 
will be given to candidates with evidence of strong quantitative and 
computational skills. The successful candidate will have the opportunity 
to interact closely with the existing team in our lab, as well as other 
colleagues at the Centre including Frank Jäkel, Kristian Kersting, Jan 
Peters, and Stefan Roth.

If you are interested, please send an informal inquiry to 
constantin.rothkopf at cogsci.tu-darmstadt.de. Full applications including 
a CV, a brief (max. 2 pages) cover letter explaining your research 
interests, why you would like to study in the lab, your longer term 
career goals, and the names and contact details of up to 3 academic 
references need to be sent to dekanat at humanw.tu-darmstadt.de until 
November 25th 2019, but later applications will be considered until the 
position is filled.
