The Department of Human Perception, Cognition and Action (Prof. Bülthoff)
is searching for scientists to conduct basic research in the area of multi-sensory
(mainly visual-vestibular) interaction. This involves investigating human
closed-loop control tasks on different motion simulators. Projects will make
use of a novel kind of motion simulator based on a large industrial robot
arm (http://www.cyberneum.de/RoboLab_en) in order to evaluate human control
performance with a large range of vehicle models.

Our department (http://www.kyb.mpg.de/bu) provides an excellent
multi-disciplinary and interactive research environment combining expertise
in cognitive science, computer science, and robotics with the latest state
of the art in virtual reality and simulator facilities. Together with the
three other departments in the Max Planck Institute for Biological
Cybernetics (http://www.kyb.mpg.de) which investigate machine learning,
physiology of the brain, and novel brain imaging techniques, this
combination offers unique research opportunities.

Applicants should have a Masters or PhD in Cognitive Science, Computer
Science, Neuroscience, Psychology, Physics, or related areas.

Expertise in one or more of the following topics would be an advantage:
robotics, control theory, virtual reality, human factors, perceptual
psychology.

Salary will be based on the German TVöD or equivalent MPG stipend. The
Max-Planck Society wishes to increase the number of female co-workers, and
applications from women are particularly encouraged. Applications from
handicapped persons will be favored when all other qualifications are equal.

Applications including the names of two referees, a publication list, and a
research statement should be sent electronically to
[email protected]
with subject line
“motsim: (your name)”.

Closing date for applications: 15 December 2008.

    Hello :)
    I’m student Ivane Javakhishvili State University of Tbilisi, line – History and Political science.
    In addition, I am working as an intern at the State
    Ministers office for European and Euro-Atlantic
    Integration. Also, I am a member of the Caucasian
    Centre for Development of Democracy, Human Rights and
    Regionalism (local NGO). I am working there as a
    leader of a women group for gender issues and involved
    in the implementation of a gender project at the
    centre.
    You know that, Georgia is a developing country. The entire economic
    situation which exists in my country does not allow
    people to be provided by sufficiently high salaries.
    At present, I am a student and do not working. This is
    why I am unable to pay the studying fee. Because of my
    parents do not have a permanent job, the same reason
    precludes from my parents to finance my studying.
    Please adviced me, how i must behave that i’ll be
    learn in outside Georgia. i can work arbitrary, that conceal my
    studing expenses.
    God Bless You!
    Best regard Miranda from Georgia
