I'm advertising this PhD/post-doc position on behalf of a colleague, Dr. Betty Mohler.
Applicants are expected to have experience in EEG and vestibular research.
Please see the attached pdfs for more info.
Lewis Chuang, PhD
Cognition and Control in Human-Machine Systems
MPI for Biological Cybernetics
OPEN POSITION: PhD IN NEUROSCIENCE
Human electrophysiology, Virtual reality, Self-consciousness,
Perspective taking, Multisensory processing, Cognition
A PhD position in Neuroscience is available. The PhD applicant will be cosupervised
by Dr. Christophe Lopez (Laboratory of Integrative and
Adaptative Neurocience at the French National Centre for Scientific
Research and Aix-Marseille University, Marseille, France) and Dr. Betty
Mohler (Space and Body Perception" research group at the Max Planck
Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Tübingen, Germany).
The position is part of the Volkswagen Foundation's "Finding Perspective"
project, which aims to examine several interactions between various forms of
perceptual perspective and bodily experience. The project is highly
interdisciplinary, with expertise spanning experimental psychology,
neurophysiology, philosophy of mind and computer science.
The aim of the position is to combine neurophysiological (EEG, EMG) and
computer science (virtual reality) methods to pursue general research
questions such as the following: How do posture and the vestibular system
affect your ability to take another's perspective? How might it feel to be
someone else, somewhere else? How does the brain process sensory signals
related to self-location and embodiment? The applicant will principally be
based in Dr. Lopez's lab in Marseille (http://lnia.fr), which investigates the
effects of vestibular stimulation and multisensory conflicts on various aspects
of bodily perception and awareness, and visuo-spatial cognition. Dr.
Mohler's "Space and Body Perception" research group is within an excellent
multidisciplinary, interactive and collaborative research environment
combining expertise in psychophysics, virtual reality and robotics (Prof.
Heinrich Bülthoff), as well as the Max Planck for Intelligent Systems, computer
vision, computer graphics, perception (Prof. Michael Black).
We are looking for suitable candidates with interest and knowledge in human
electroencephalography, electromyography, psychophysical methods, as well
as good programming and modeling skills (Matlab, Unity3D, 3DStudio Max).
Applicants for this position should have ideally a background in neuroscience,
psychology, cognitive sciences, computer science, or a related field.
The position is immediately available and is funded for a period of 3 years.
Payment is according to the guidelines of the French National Centre for
Scientific Research (CNRS) for the two first years of the PhD, and the Max
Planck Society for the third year of the PhD. The Max Planck Society is an
equal opportunity employer: Handicapped individuals are strongly encouraged
to apply, and so are women in areas in which they are underrepresented.
Applications should include a letter of motivation, a curriculum vitae,
Master certificates (including a list of classes taken during Bachelor and
Master studies), letters of references and a short summary of past
research experience. Applications should be submitted in a single PDF
document to the email addresses below. All information or questions
regarding the position should be submitted electronically to Dr. Lopez
with the subject line "PhD Position 1: VW Project".
For general inquiries concerning the Volkswagen Foundation's "Finding
Perspective project", please contact Dr. Adrian Alsmith (firstname.lastname@example.org).
