Postdoctoral fellows - Neuroscience / Behavioural Biology
The Georg-August-University Göttingen, the German Primate Center and the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience are looking to fill
Four positions of postdoctoral fellows
The postdoctoral fellows will be associated with the Cognitive Ethology Laboratory (Julia Fischer, www.dpz.eu/de/abteilung/kognitive-ethologie), the Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory (Stefan Treue, www.dpz.eu/cnl), including the Sensorimotor Group (Alexander Gail, www.dpz.eu/smg) and the Decision and Awareness Group (Igor Kagan, www.dpz.eu/dag), at the University of Göttingen and the German Primate Center, or the Theoretical Neurophysics Group (Fred Wolf, https://www.uni-goettingen.de/en/58058.html) at the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience.
Postdoctoral fellows are beeing recruited for an interdisciplinary research project studying social interactions and decision-making in human and non-human primates. For this purpose, a novel experimental platform is to be developed for behavioral (and with the later option of electrophysiological / stimulation) studies of sensorimotor decision-making in cooperative and competitive social interaction settings, across humans and different non-human primate species. We are searching for two postdoctoral fellows with an experimental or engineering background to develop this innovative experimental platform by integrating several technological (e.g., eye-tracking, hand motion tracking, real-time behavior-contingent visual stimuli, etc.) and methodological approaches (e.g., from neurosciences, behavioral biology and psychology) into a single experimental tool. Two postdoctoral fellows with a mathematical or theoretical background are expected to develop a mathematical framework and the computational tools for the analysis of large-scale multimodal data streams to be generated through the platform and from other sources.
Please send your application with the usual documents submitted as a single PDF file via email to the Science Campus coordinator, Dr. Christian Schloegl (CSchloegl@dpz.eu), with the subject “Application social decision-making”.
Application deadline is January 31st, 2016.
