Dear all,

The Computational Cognitive Neuroscience lab <https://hebartlab.com/> of
Martin Hebart is looking for two postdocs (initially for two years, with a
possibility for an extension), who work in Computational Cognitive
Neuroscience, Psychology, or a related field. The positions are part of the
LOEWE Start Professorship of Martin Hebart, as well as the ERC Starting
Grant COREDIM "Uncovering the core dimensions of visual object

Our lab aims at uncovering fundamental principles of visual and semantic
processing in the human brain, with a focus on the visual system. To this
end, we have access to a wide range of exciting large-scale datasets,
including (1) human neuroimaging, human and macaque neurophysiological, and
behavioral datasets as part of the THINGS initiative (
https://things-initiative.org) as well as (2) recent densely-sampled
ultrahigh field functional and structural MRI data to reveal the
relationship between the fine-grained cortical anatomy, the human
structural connectome, and brain function in occipitotemporal cortex.

The exact implementation of the projects is flexible but should be tied to
the overall goals of the projects. The project of postdoc position 1 should
be focused on using and ideally integrating the diverse datasets acquired
as part of the THINGS initiative, including the possibility of
computational modeling. The project of postdoc position 2 should be focused
either on the functional neuroanatomy of the human visual system or on the
relationship between visual and semantic features in occipitotemporal

The positions are located at University of Giessen, with close
collaboration with the Max Planck Institute of Human Cognitive and Brain
Sciences in Leipzig, Germany. Our lab provides a supportive environment
that strives towards helping postdocs advance in their career. We
provide expertise and state-of-the-art resources for the successful
completion of the postdoc positions. University of Giessen offers a vibrant
community of vision scientists, and there are close collaborations with
Marburg (15min distance by train) and Frankfurt (40min distance). The
proximity to Frankfurt provides ideal mobility for national and
international candidates.

For details, please read the job announcements. Please apply using the
online form:
Postdoc position 1
Postdoc position 2
