We are seeking candidates for 2 PhD positions in the Department of Experimental Psychology at the Georg-August University of Goettingen.

About Us
We are a small team investigating basic processes of visual perception that lead to a conscious experience,
as well as mechanisms underlying the processing of visual stimuli that do not reach consciousness.
To address research questions in this field of experimental consciousness research, we are using psychophysical
(e.g., reaction times, eye movements), physiological (EEG, fMRI) and phenomenological approaches.

The Projects
1) Basic research on perception of apparent motion investigating the influence of unconscious direction information

2) Electrophysiological correlates of phenomenology and the richness of visual perception

In both projects you will be closely involved in planning and implementation of experiments, as well as data analysis and dissemination of research findings.
A high degree of independence and the contribution of own ideas are strongly encouraged.
In addition, you will be involved in supervising and teaching small groups of students in the Bachelor's program in Psychology (3 hours per week in German language).
Both positions commence on September 1st 2023, and run for 3 years. Positions are remunerated according to the TV-L (50% of Spinal Point 13).

Application deadline is on the 30th of May.

Your Profile
You hold or are about to hold a degree in Psychology, and are interested in visual perception and cognition, as well as neuroanatomy.
You are proficient in statistics and the use of statistical software (preferably R), and have experience in programming (e.g. Presentation, Matlab, C, C++).
You have a good command of German and English (written and spoken).
You can find more information following the respective links.
