Job ID


The Chair of Lifespan Developmental Neuroscience at TU Dresden, Germany is searching for a new Postdoc through the Excellence Cluster “Tactile Internet with Human-in-the-Loop” ( The positions are for 3 years and can start as soon as possible in 2019.
CeTI-position_Li_1 – Postdoc for human multisensory perception (Research room TP1)
Topic: Psychophysical and neural mechanisms of goal-directed multisensory perception
Tasks: One of Cluster’s research aims is to understand key psychophysical parameters and neural mechanisms of human multisensory perception and decision making that are sensitive to brain development, brain aging or individual differences in expertise. These parameters are crucial for designing sensors/actuators and closed-loop human-machine interactive models that are sensitive to the user’s age and other user characteristics. This position will be located in TP1, where we will conduct multisensory perception (e.g., audio-tactile, visual-tactile, audio-visual-tactile) and decision making experiments with human participants of different ages, covering early childhood to old age, while assessing functional brain correlates of multisensory perception using electroencephalography (EEG) or near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS).
Requirements: PhD degree in cognitive neuroscience, psychology or related fields who has expertise in psychophysical research of sensory and perceptual processes and cognitive neuroscience methods. Interests and prior experiences in computational modelling or human-technology interactions would be a plus.

How To Apply: Submit your application including the usual documentation by January 4th, 2019 (stamped arrival date of the university central mail service applies) with the reference „CeTI-position_Li_1 “ in the subject header via the TU Dresden SecureMail Portal or S/MIME encrypted by sending it as a pdf document to and
