Our interdisciplinary research programme provides exciting and interdisciplinary research opportunities for research on human vision, research methodology and statistical learning. We use a variety of research tools (psychophysics, high-precision motion tracking, eye-tracking, EEG, fMRI) and have a special focus on research-methodology. Successful applicants will work in the interdisciplinary collaborative research center 'Robust vision' (http://www.uni-tuebingen.de/en/95173) and will therefore benefit from a stimulating scientific environment.

Applicants must hold a MSc-degree (or equivalent) in cognitive sciences, psychology, computer science, mathematics, statistics, biology or similar fields. We expect knowledge and interests in experimental psychology, cognitive neurosciences, and programming skills (e.g. Matlab / Python / R / C/C++).
Tübingen is a beautiful, small University-town with one of the famous old Universities of Europe (http://www.uni-tuebingen.de/en/university.html). It has a strong and lively research community committed to the Neurosciences and Cognitive Science. Tübingen is a cultural center and right at the beautiful Swabian Alb which allows for plenty of outdoor activities. It is also very close to the large cultural center of Stuttgart.
Disabled candidates will be given preference over other equally qualified applicants. The University seeks to raise the number of women in research and teaching and therefore urges qualified women to apply.
