A (fully funded) PostDoc position is available, shared between the Neural
Dynamics of Visual Cognition Lab
of Prof. Radoslaw Cichy and the division of Experimental and Neurocognitive
Psychology led by Prof. Arthur Jacobs (link

The aim of the project is to determine how the human brain transforms both
pictorial and verbal sensory information into affective-semantic concepts
via a combination of methods (computational modelling – deep learning nets,
neuroimaging – EEG, fMRI, multivariate encoding and decoding models).

Appointment is for 3 years. The position is funded by the German Research
Foundation. Preferred starting date is 1st of October 2021, but the exact
data is flexible and open to negotiation.

We seek a highly qualified PostDoc with a doctorate in a relevant field
(e.g., data science, cognitive science, computer science, psychology, etc.)
and strong interest in the research topic. The ideal candidate would have
excellent programming skills (python, alternatively Matlab) and previous
knowledge of deep neural network modelling (either visual or linguistic
data) and experience with neuroimaging (fMRI or M/EEG).

There is ample space for the successful candidate shaping the project
conceptually and methodologically.

We encourage informal inquiries to rmcichy at zedat.fu-berlin.de.

For formal application please send a CV, a brief statement of research
interests and the names and contact details of two academic references to
daniela.satici.thies at fu-berlin.de until 28th of June, but later
applications will be considered until the position is filled.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
