We are looking for a Postdoc to join the large-scale project ICSPACE (intelligent coaching space) in the excellence cluster Citec. The project brings together VR technology and computer graphics, language research, and psychology, aiming to develop VR-based training. The role of the Postdoc will be to develop, coordinate, and run studies that asssess and evaluate the visual, auditory, and tactile interaction between the VR enviromment and its human users. The Postdoc will be integrated both in the Citec project and the Biopsychology group. The position is third-party funded and does not require teaching. It is initially for about 1 year, but has an option to be extended. The position should start as soon as possible.
We will interview as soon as possible after the deadline (August 11, 2016).
The Reach & Touch Lab / Biopsychology group investigates sensorimotor and multisensory transformation and integration, with a focus on tactile processing and its relationship with movement (check out the remaining website and two more open Postdoc positions and a PhD position). Available research methods will be motion tracking, EEG, TMS, EMG, 3T fMRI, and a two-armed Kinarm. Besides the focus on touch and sensorimotor processing, the group will investigate developmental aspects of these topics in infants and children. At the University of Bielefeld, there are multiple opportunities for collaboration for additional psychological/neuroscientific methods. There’s a multitude of possibilities for research, and your ideas matter.
Apply by August 11!
