The key goal of the International Research Training Group (IRTG) The
Brain in Action – BrainAct is to deepen our understanding of the neural
systems and processes that underlie perception and action in everyday
living. Three interrelated aspects of these processes will be at the
scientific core of our IRTG: (i) Action control in natural
environments, which comprises (ii) Multisensory perception for action,
and (ii) Internal encoding of action-space.
The IRTG brings together researchers from psychology, physics,
kinesiology, engineering, bio-medical sciences and medicine. We are
convinced that future progress in the field of systems neuroscience
critically depends on researchers with an in-depth training in relevant
experimental techniques and a broad knowledge of pertinent theoretical
frameworks. To this end, German and Canadian partners with longstanding
and internationally renowned expertise in systems neuroscience will
join forces to combine top-level interdisciplinary research with
state-of-the-art training of doctoral candidates.
Open Positions: 7 Research Assistants (Doctoral
The positions are to be staffed starting on 1st October 2016 or soon
a maximum period of up to 3 years and will offer the possibility of
further scientific qualification
in the frame of the assigned duties.
