PhD and Postodoctoral Position in Visually Guided Behavior in Complex 3D Environments

The Computer Engineering Group at the Faculty of Technology of Bielefeld University offers a temporary position as doctoral or postdoctoral researcher (salary BAT IIa, for two years three months, starting April 1st).

This is a DFG-funded research project “Visually guided behavior in complex 3D environments.”

In this project, we will develop models of visual motion perception and of the corresponding sensorimotor control strategies in insects, transfer them into technical solutions, and test these systems in a gantry setup.

The goal is not only to imitate biological behavioral strategies in technical systems, but also to use these systems as a testbed for the verification of biological models in complex, three-dimensional environments.

The project runs in close cooperation with the Dept. of Neurobiology (Prof. Dr. Martin Egelhaaf).

The applicant should hold a university’s Master’s or Diploma degree in computer science, engineering, mathematics, or physics.

A background in image and signal processing, neuroinformatics and robotics is useful.

Strong programming skills and advanced mathematical competences are expected.

Bielefeld University encourages disabled people to apply.

Applications by women are expressly requested; in the case of comparable competences and qualification, women will preferably be considered if there are no dominating reasons arising from the person of another applicant.

Part-time employment (e.g. 75% over 3 years) is possible.
