Dear vision crowd,

There is a postdoc / data scientist position available in my newly
established Neural Computation Lab at Justus-Liebig-University Gießen,
Germany. The position is fixed term, until March 2025.

The position is funded by the cluster project "The Adaptive Mind (TAM)".
The project aims to in an interdisciplinary way observe empirically,
describe quantitatively, and model computationally how the human mind
continually adapts in an ever-changing and often unpredictable world.
Further details about the project, and the institutions and researchers
involved can be found here: https://sites.google.com/view/theadaptivemind/

The position involves two key tasks:
(1) Development, implementation, and management of the project-specific
Data Hub. The Data Hub will establish a platform that allows researchers to
archive, share, and mine data and code that are generated in the TAM
project. The post holder will be the primary contact point for TAM
researchers at the University of Gießen and liaise with other institutes
(specifically the University of Marburg) to develop the Data Hub further.
(2) Development of an independent line of research in the area of visual
neuroscience. The post holder should establish their own research agenda,
which should be topically related to ongoing research in the Neural
Computation Lab (Prof. Kaiser). An overview of current projects in the lab
and recent publications can be found here: http://www.danielkaiser.net

We are looking for an enthusiastic researcher with a PhD in psychology,
neuroscience, computer science, data science, or a related discipline. The
position is well suited for a psychologist or neuroscientist interested in
vision who has first experience in the use of high-performance computing
and/or data and code management.

Within the TAM project and at the JLU Gießen, you will find yourself in a
world-leading environment for vision science, with cutting edge
laboratories for psychophysics and neuroimaging, innovative research
directions and various high-profile grants (e. g., 8 ERC grants, a
Collaborative Research Center SFB/TRR 135 on Cardinal Mechanisms of
Perception, the IRTG 1901 The Brain in Action, the Research Unit RU 2107
Neurobiology of Psychiatric Disorders, the Centre for Cognitive Science and
the Hessian Center for Artificial Intelligence - hessian.AI).

A detailed description of the position and the desired applicant profile
can be found in the university's official job advertisement:

The application deadline is 4th November 2021.

If you are interested in applying, have any further questions, or want to
have an informal chat, please get in touch with me:

Best wishes,

Prof. Daniel Kaiser
Mathematical Institute
Justus-Liebig-University Gießen
