Post-doc: active vision

We are looking for a post-doc to work on a project to study how active observers deal with the continuously changing retinal input that they encounter. The positions is funded by a grant awarded to Katja Fiehler (Giessen, Germany), Simon Rushton (Cardiff, UK) and Eli Brenner (our group) to study how visual space is represented for various tasks. Our project will concentrate on how various features of surrounding objects, including such factors as their stability over time, influence the control of goal-directed arm movements. The anticipated starting date is in the spring of 2019. Requests for information and formal applications should be sent to We expect applicants to have a PhD on a topic related to visual psychophysics or visuo-motor control. The closing date for applications is the 28th of February 2019.

PhD Candidate

At the moment, there are no open paid positions in our lab. If you have your own funding, please contact me for the possibilities.


If you are within a year of obtaining a PhD and have publications in international journals, you can contact me about possibilities to become a post-doc in my group. Note for German students: we can act as an academic host for Feodor Lynen Research Fellowship of the von Humboldt foundation.
