and execute virtual reality experiments for  the validation  of (deep)  
learning  and  Bayesian models  of  human behavior  and perception 
and/or to develop,  implement  and analyze these  models.  
Contributions  to scientific publications and regular and active 
participation in the CRC’s scientific program are required.

engineering or physics (Master, Diploma, or comparable), a completed or 
nearly completed PhD as well as demonstrable programming experience in a 
high-level language, e.g. Python. We expect you to be interested in the 
topic of the project (to be documented in a motivation letter (1 page
