We offer in total 8 funded PhD positions associated with the graduate
school on "Computational Cognition"
(https://www.comco-cms.uni-osnabrueck.de/en/open_positions.html) , at
the interface between Cognitive Science, Machine learning, Computational
Neuroscience, and AI.

The RTG Computational Cognition aims at reintegrating Cognitive Science
and Artificial Intelligence. PhD students of the RTG will be educated in
both subjects in order to combine the findings of these fields and thus
to get a better understanding of human and machine intelligence.
Research fields involved in the RTG are Neuroinformatics,
NeuroBioPsychology, Bio-Inspired Computer Vision, Knowledge-Based
Systems, Cognitive Natural Language Processing & Communication,
Cognitive Modeling, Artificial Intelligence, Psycho/Neurolinguistics,
Computational Linguistics and Cognitive Computing. The RTG focuses on
the integration of two research fields. Further information on the RTG
is available at www.comco.uni-osnabrueck.de. Detailed information on the
core areas of the offered PhD projects can be obtained from the
spokesmen of the RTG, Prof. Dr. Gordon Pipa (gpipa at uni-osnabrueck.de)
and Prof. Dr. Peter König (pkoenig at uni-osnabrueck.de).

The RTG is incorporated into the Cognitive Science PhD program founded
in 2002. PhD students of the RTG will take advantage of an
interdisciplinary environment, which nevertheless focuses on a common
research topic and offers a broad range of methodological synergies
between the projects.

Required Qualifications:
Applicants are expected to have an academic degree (Master/Diploma),
experience in at least one of the domains listed above, proven
experience in interdisciplinary work as well as a good command of the
English language.

Osnabrück University is committed to helping working/studying parents
balance their family and working lives.

Osnabrück University seeks to guarantee equality of opportunity for
women and men and strives to correct any gender imbalance in its schools
and departments.

If two candidates are equally qualified, preference will be given to the
candidate with disability status.

Applications with the usual documentation should be submitted by e-mail
in a single PDF file to the director of the Institute of Cognitive
Science, Prof. Dr. Gunther Heidemann (gheidema at uni-osnabrueck.de) with a
cc to office at ikw.uni-osnabrueck.de no later than April 19, 2021.

To inquire additional information on for example specific research
projects you can contact the coordinator Gabriela Pipa (gapipa at uos.de).
