Postdoctoral position in Human Visual Psychophysics with fMRI/MRI, (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. 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
fMRI/MRI technology can be used in combination with other methods such as
eye tracking, TMS and/or EEG methodologies,
and other related methods as necessary. The postdoc will be working closely
with the principal investigator and other members of Zhaoping's team when
* Conduct and participate in research projects such as lab and

* 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
eye tracking, MATLAB programming for experiments,
experimental data taking, data analysis, and paper writing.
* Highly skilled in fMRI experiments and data analysis.
* 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 (www.lizhaoping.org <http://www.lizhaoping.org> ).
Our approaches consist of both theoretical and experimental techniques
including human psychophysics, fMRI imaging, EEG/ERP, and computational
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 (MPI) 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
with our colleagues in the university, at MPI, 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.
The position is available immediately and will be open until filled.
Preference will be given to applications received by July 31th, 2023.
