At the University of Bergen, Norway, we are currently announcing two PhD positions with starting date Nov. 1st and application deadline Aug. 15th:



The main tasks of the PhD candidates are to plan, conduct, analyze and publish the results of behavioral experiments investigating the illusion of empty blind zones using virtual reality (VR). Ideally, we are looking for candidates who is also interested in being involved in the programming of the VR experiments to some extent. The appointed persons will join the Bergen Laboratory for the Study of Decision, Intuition, Consciousness, and Emotion (DICE-lab<https://www.uib.no/en/rg/dice-lab>) at the Department for Psychosocial Science. The main supervisor will be professor Vebjørn Ekroll. We aim to offer the candidate opportunities for brief research stays in the labs of Rob van Lier (Radboud University, the Netherlands) and/or Johan Wagemans (KU Leuven, Belgium).

More info about the illusion of empty blind zones can be found in this publication:

Vebjørn Ekroll
