A PhD position is available in Giessen, Germany, to work in the field of computational cognitive neuroscience focusing on visual perception. The project combines machine learning with human behavioral and neural data. 

The position is within the SFB-funded project “Factors shaping categorical face processing” in the DFG-funded Collaborative Research Center Cardinal Mechanisms of Perception (https://www.sfb-perception.de/index-en/). The project is jointly headed by Katharina Dobs and Ben de Haas. The successful candidate will join the group of Katharina Dobs at the Psychology Department of Giessen University.
