Research work in the Cluster Science of Intelligence in the project „Probing properties of recursive, hierarchical information processing in visual systems“, in which roboticists develop hierarchical functional architectures for synthetic perceptual systems in close collaboration with the candidate. The postdoc’s core task is to uncover perceptual consequences of these architectures, and to develop critical psychophysical experiments in the domains of attention, adaptation, task-specificity, and multimodality that can be tested in both human and robotic systems with the goal to derive intelligent principles of processing in hierarchical perceptual systems and compare them to those of biological systems


Applicants must hold a PhD in Cognitive Science, Psychology, Neuroscience, or related fields at the time of the project start. Strong interest in vision science; Experience in psychophysics and / or behavioral neuroscience; Programming skills in Matlab / Python / R for experimental control and data analysis; Willingness to engage in close collaboration with colleagues in robotics; Good command of the English language (spoken and written)
