PhD Student / Postdoc position (m/ f / d) in computational vision /  
graphics / psychophyiscs

at the Section Computational Sensomotorics, Hertie Institute for
Clinical Brain Science / Center for Integrative Neuroscience,  
University Clinic Tübingen, Germany

The positions are part of the ERC Synergy project RELEVANCE that  
investigates the neural
and computational processes during the perception of bodies and social  
The project is realized in close collaboration with the Universities  
of Leuven and Maastricht.

The project combines advanced techniques from body tracking, computer  
animation, and VR
with experimental research in humans and animal models. A specific  
focus is the study
how the processing of social stimuli and changes in interactive situations.

We search for candidates with interest in the domains of computer  
graphics / computer
vision and applications in human psychophysics. Specifically  
interesting would be
individuals with previous experience in the following fields:
- computer animation, virtual reality, game engines (e.g. Unreal, Unity, etc.)
- human psychophysics
- machine learning in computer vision and computer graphics
- motion capture and tracking

Successful applicants (students or postdocs) will be working in the  
Section for
Computational Sensomotorics (http://www.compsens.uni-tuebingen.de/) at the
Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain Research and the Centre for  
Integrative Neuroscience
at the University Clinic Tübingen. They will also collaborate closely  
with partners at
the University of Leuven (Belgium) and the Uiversity of Maastricht (NL).

Our group is part of the Bernstein Center in Tübingen, and of the  CyberValley
initiative (https://cyber-valley.de/) that links groups related to machine
learning and industry at the Universities and the Max Planck Institutes in
Tübingen and Stuttgart. Highly talented PhD students will have also the
opportunity to apply for a PhD in the International Max Planck Research
School (IMPRS)  for ‘Intelligent Systems’ (https://imprs.is.mpg.de/)
or in the IMPRS ‘Mechanisms of Mental Function and Dysfunction’ at the
Graduate Training Center for Neuroscience in Tübingen

The Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain Research (HIH) is one of the leading
institutes that investigates neuroscience and related technical applications
4in Tübingen. It is a central part of the TübingenNeuroCampus (TNC), which
embed more than 100 groups from the University, the MPI for Biological
Cybernetics and from the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE),
working on many different aspects of neuroscience, ranging from molecular to
systems neuroscience, and from basic research to clinical and  
technical applications.

Candidates should have a (research) Masters degree in one of the  
following disciplines:
Computer Science, (Cognitive) Neuroscience, Mathematics, (Biomedical)  
Physics, Computer Animation/Visual Effects, or in Psychology/Biology  
with a strong
interest in technical applications. In addition, experience with programming
(Matlab, Python, etc.), as well as basic skills in a programing languages
such as C++ or Java are recommendable.

Application deadline: Dec 30, 2022

Please send your application (including CV, personal statement of research
4background and interests, transcript of BA and MSc marks, and 2 letters
of reference) to Prof. Dr. Martin Giese.
