The University of Oldenburg offers cutting-edge infrastructure for neuroscience research, and an international, friendly environment with researchers and students with highly diverse backgrounds. The Division of Psychological Methods and Statistics has been recently established. In our research, we apply and advance multivariate statistical and psychometric modeling techniques (especially Structural Equation Models) aiming at better understanding individual differences in visual cognition at the neural and behavioral level. We combine psychometric, neurometric (EEG, (f)MRI), molecular-genetic and hormonal assessments, and in some of our recent projects we also apply mathematical and computational modeling techniques. In Oldenburg we have access to EEG, MEG, MRI and NIRS research infrastructure (see also: https://uol.de/en/medicine/biomedicum/neuroimaging-unit/). Our aim is to develop collaborative projects with other Divisions within the Department and the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences. We are also associated with the Cluster of Excellence Hearing4all and are looking for someone who would like to join such an interdisciplinary environment and is strongly motivated to use the available research infrastructure.
Candidates should have an academic university degree (master or equivalent) and a PhD in psychology, biology, (cognitive) neuroscience, computer science, biomedical engineering or related disciplines. A strong background in statistical modeling is essential and experience with neuroscience methods a plus. Eligible candidates should be interested in neural signal processing as well. Very good English literacy skills and (basic) programming competencies are a requirement. The appointed person will have a teaching load of 4 hours per week within the Research Methods module of our Research Master programme Neurocognitive Psychology (see: https://uol.de/en/psychology/study-programme/master/).
