The Department of Experimental Psychology at the University of Göttingen 
has two PhD student positions available, ideally starting October, 1st, 
2021. Please note that we have extended the application deadline until 
August, 8th, 2021. The fixed-term positions (3 years) are remunerated 
based on German pay grade 13 TV-L (50%, or 19.90h/week). Applicants need 
to have excellent German skills to assist in the department’s teaching 
and examination duties in the Bachelor and Master programs in Psychology.

Candidates will work on a PhD project in the field of experimental 
consciousness research. Our group investigates behavioral and neural 
mechanisms of processing unconscious visual stimuli to understand 
priming and visual masking. To this end, we use psychophysical (e.g., 
reaction times, eye movements), physiological (EEG, fMRI), and 
phenomenological approaches. Candidates will be closely involved in all 
aspects of experimental design, data collection, analysis and 
publication of results. A high degree of independence and contribution 
of own ideas is expected.

Applicants should have studied Psychology and possess knowledge and 
interest in the human visual system, visual cognition, neuroanatomy and 
statistics. Experience with statistical software (ideally R) and 
programming (e.g., MATLAB, Python, Presentation) are expected. 
Experience with psychophysiological methods (e.g. EEG, fMRI) is an 
advantage. Applicants will possess analytical thinking, comprehension, 
commitment, self-organization, teamwork, and communication skills.

Please send your application with the usual documents in electronic form 
via e-mail by August, 8th, 2021 to Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, 
Institute for Psychology, Department of Experimental Psychology, 
Gossler-Str. 14, 37073 Göttingen, e-mail: 
uwe.mattler at psych.uni-goettingen.de.
