Postdoctoral position in Human Psychophysics (m/f/d) – (TVöD Bund E13, 100%)

The Department of Sensory and Sensorimotor Systems (PI Prof. Li Zhaoping) at
the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics and at the University of
Tübingen is currently looking for highly skilled and motivated individuals
to work on projects aimed towards understanding visual attentional and
perceptual processes using fMRI/MRI, TMS and/or EEG methodologies. The
framework and motivation of the projects can be found at:

The projects can involve, for example, visual search tasks, stereo vision
tasks, visual illusions, and will be discussed during the application
process. fMRI/MRI, TMS and/or EEG methodologies can be used in combination
with eye tracking, and other related methods as necessary. The postdoc will
be working closely with the principal investigator and other members of
Zhaoping's team when needed.



*        Conduct and participate in research projects such as lab and
equipment set up, data collection, data analysis, writing reports and
papers, and presenting at scientific conferences.

*        Participate in routine laboratory operations, such as planning and
preparations for experiments, lab maintenance and lab procedures.

*        Coordinate with the PI and other team members for strategies and
project planning.

*        Coordinate with the PI and other team members for project planning,
and in supervision of student projects or teaching assistance for university
courses in our field.


*        Ph.D. in neuroscience, psychology, computer science, physics or a
related natural science or engineering field.

*        Publications in peer-reviewed journals.

*        Highly skilled in techniques of human visual psychophysics such as
MATLAB programming for experiments, experimental data taking, data analysis,
and paper writing.

*        Familiarity with hardware and techniques in eye tracking, fMRI/MRI,
EEG, TMS, tDCS/tACS, and other related techniques such as in carrying out
fMRI experiments is highly desirable.

*        Experience in project management is highly desired.

*        Strong command of English; knowledge of German is a plus.

Who we are: 

We use a multidisciplinary approach to investigate sensory and sensory-motor
transforms in the brain  <https://www.lizhaoping.org> (www.lizhaoping.org).
Our approaches consist of both theoretical and experimental techniques
including human psychophysics, fMRI imaging, electrophysiology and
computational modelling. One part of our group is located in the University,
in the Centre for Integrative Neurosciences (CIN), and the other part is in
the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics as the Department for
Sensory and Sensorimotor Systems. You will have the opportunity to learn
other skills in our multidisciplinary group and benefit from interactions
with our colleagues in the university as well as internationally. This job
opening is for the CIN or the MPI working group. The position (salary level
TVöD-Bund E13, 100%) is for a duration of two years. Extension or a
permanent contract after two years is possible depending on situations. We
seek to raise the number of women in research and teaching and therefore
urge qualified women to apply. Disabled persons will be preferred in case of
equal qualification.


Your application:

The position is available immediately and will be open until filled.
Preference will be given to applications received by May 31st, 2023. We look
forward to receiving your application that includes (1) a cover letter,
including a statement on roughly when you would like to start this position,
(2) a motivation statement, (3) a CV, (4) names and contact details of three
people for references,  (5) if you have them, transcripts from your past and
current education listing the courses taken and their grades, (6) if you
have them, please also include copies of your degree certificates, (7) you
may include a pdf file of your best publication(s), or other documents and
information that you think could strengthen your application. Please use pdf
files for these documents (and you may combine them into a single pdf file)
and send to jobs.li at tuebingen.mpg.de <mailto:jobs.li at tuebingen.mpg.de> ,
where also informal inquiries can be addressed. Please note that
applications without complete information in (1)-(4) will not be considered,
unless the cover letter includes an explanation and/or information about
when the needed materials will be supplied.
