Hi everyone,

There is a PhD position available in my new lab at the
Justus-Liebig-University Gießen, Germany. In the lab we investigate the
neural mechanisms of perception, how action influences our perception, and
what causes altered perception in people with psychotic symptoms. We use
behavioural methods, fMRI, and brain stimulation.

The position can be filled as soon as possible and is funded for 3 years.
Salary is according to the German TV-H salary system on the level of 50%
“Wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiter” (E13 TV-H, 50%). A limited amount of
teaching duties is expected from the successful candidate.

*We’re looking for someone with:*
    • Completed Master‘s or equivalent university degree in Psychology,
Neuroscience, Biology, or a related field
    • Knowledge of and interest in topics in cognitive neuroscience, in
particular perceptual mechanisms
    • Experience with data collection and data analysis
    • Very good English skills
    • Good programming skills (e.g. Matlab/Python)

*Research environment:*
Gießen has a vibrant action and perception research community that provides
a supportive atmosphere and plenty of opportunities for collaboration and
training. There are regular seminar series, workshops, shared lab meetings,
etc. So although my lab is still very new, you will be part of a larger
research network with many interactions with other labs and training
