The junior research group of Dr. Fred Hamker in Psychology at the 
Westfaelische-Wilhelms Universitaet Muenster invites applications for a 
Postdoctoral and a PhD position.

Our group pursues a theoretical and model-driven approach to 
experimental psychology/neuroscience in the field of visual perception 
and its cognitive control. It is part of the laboratory of Prof. Dr. 
Markus Lappe. Together, we form an interdisciplinary research community 
with members coming from psychology, biology, computer science, 
electrical engineering, physics.

The positions are within a project funded by the German Research 
Council (DFG). They aim at developing a neurocomputational systems 
approach to modeling the cognitive guidance of attention and 
object/category recognition. The scope is on building functional models 
of cortical and subcortical areas in the primate brain based on 
physiological and anatomical findings. The function of the prefrontal 
cortex and basal ganglia will be an integral part of these models. The 
validity of the models should also be demonstrated by testing their 
performance on real world category/object recognition tasks.

A degree in psychology, computer science, electrical engineering, 
physics, or biology is a prerequisite. Experience in programming (C++, 
Matlab), applied mathematics, and neural modeling is of significant 
advantage. Salary is according to German research scale (BAT IIa for 
the Postdoctoral and BAT IIa/2 for the PhD position). The position is 
initially for two years, starting in January 2006 (or soon thereafter).

Please send applications by October 15th, but no later than November 
1st 2005 per email (PDF preferred) to fhamker at uni-muenster.de.

The university is an equal opportunity employer. Women are encouraged 
to apply. Disabled applicants will receive priority in case they have 
equal qualifications.
