Postdoctoral position at the Institute of Psychology of the University 
of Leipzig, Germany
EEG lab of Prof Dr Matthias M. Mueller

The Institute of Psychology at the University of Leipzig is seeking to 
appoint a full-time Research Associate to work on a DFG-funded project 
investigating the neural basis of visual object representation awarded 
to Prof Matthias M. Mϋller (University of Leipzig) in collaboration with 
Dr Jasna Martinovic (University of Aberdeen). The employment will be 
initially awarded for three years with the possibility of extension, 
with the salary in the postdoctoral range that is typical for positions 
of that level in Germany. The actual salary will be commensurate with 
the applicant’s qualifications and previous work experience.

The appointee should be able to conduct independent research into visual 
object representation using EEG and behavioural methods. The University 
of Leipzig has its own 128-channel EEG laboratory and a fine record in 
investigating brain responses related to visual attention and object 
representation. The lab focuses on the study of temporal dynamics of 
integrative brain activity which are explored with a range of EEG 
responses such as the event-related potentials, steady-state evoked 
potentials and event-related high-frequency oscillatory activity.

Candidates should have a background in Psychology, Biology or 
Neuroscience and hold a PhD or be close to completion of a PhD. Previous 
neuroimaging experience is preferred – in particular EEG or MEG. 
Familiarity with the use of Matlab for data analysis and experimental 
design would be advantageous, as would be previous experience in vision 
science. Furthermore, excellent writing and presentation skills in 
English would be required. If the candidate would show interest in doing 
a habilitation at the Institute, a limited amount of teaching would also 
be made available.

Applications with a letter of interest, CV, publication list and details 
of two referees should be sent to Prof M.M.Mϋller at 
m.mueller at rz.uni-leipzig.de. Informal enquiries can be made to either 
Prof M.M.Mueller or to Dr Jasna Martinovic (email: jasnam at liv.ac.uk). 
The deadline for applications is 5th of June 2010.
