The Perception lab at the Technical University of Darmstadt (PI: Thomas Wallis) is seeking a highly motivated student with a deep interest in perception to pursue a doctoral degree.

The lab studies visual perception in humans using psychophysics and computational models. A secondary interest is in machine vision systems, including deep neural networks. Topics of current interest include peripheral visibility and scene appearance, segmentation and grouping, explainable AI, and image quality assessment. More information can be found on this Google Scholar profile (https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=Xs2TXzAAAAAJ&hl=en) and on our forthcoming lab website.

This position is funded by the state of Hessen and includes a teaching expectation of 3 contact hours per week per semester (3 "Semesterwochenstunden"). Some of this teaching will be conducted in German. The research topic is negotiable.

The application deadline is November 28, 2021.

The formal job advertisements, application instructions and further information can be found on the TU Darmstadt's website in German (https://www.tu-darmstadt.de/universitaet/karriere_an_der_tu/stellenangebote/aktuelle_stellenangebote/stellenausschreibungen_detailansichten_1_433088.de.jsp) and in English (https://www.tu-darmstadt.de/universitaet/karriere_an_der_tu/stellenangebote/aktuelle_stellenangebote/stellenausschreibungen_detailansichten_1_433088.en.jsp).
