Max Planck Insti­tute for Human Deve­lop­ment - Cen­ter for Adap­tive Ratio­na­lity

The Cen­ter for Adapt­ive Ration­al­ity (ARC) is an inter­dis­cip­lin­ary and inter­na­tional research group of psy­cho­lo­gists, neur­os­cient­ists, eco­nom­ists, philo­soph­ers, bio­lo­gists, and math­em­aticians.

Our goal is to study how people and other liv­ing beings search for inform­a­tion in the world and in their minds and make decisions when cir­cum­stances give them little time to pon­der their options and when cog­nit­ive resources are lim­ited. How can indi­vidu­als and groups juggle the sim­ul­tan­eous demands of uncer­tainty, data scarcity, and dead­lines—which are the rule rather than the excep­tion in real-world decision-mak­ing?

Stu­dent Research Assist­ant

labor­at­ory tech­ni­cian

Work­ing field:

Tech­nical super­vi­sion of beha­vi­oural, Vir­tual Real­ity, Eye-Track­ing and EEG labor­at­ory.
  • Install­a­tion, con­fig­ur­a­tion and test­ing of hard- and soft­ware.
  • Sup­port­ing tech­nical prob­lems.
  • Tech­nical con­sulta­tion for exper­i­ments.


Require­ments (oblig­at­ory)
  • Good Eng­lish and Ger­man com­mu­nic­a­tion skills (spoken and writ­ten).
  • Enrol­ment at a Ger­man uni­versity.
  • New tech­no­lo­gies excite you.
  • See optim­isa­tion poten­tials and solve issues with own ideas.
  • Inde­pend­ent, reli­ant and con­scien­tious work atti­tude.
Require­ments (optional)
  • Python pro­gram­ming exper­i­ence.
  • Gen­eral exper­i­ence with Vir­tual Real­ity.
  • Win­dows admin­is­tra­tion exper­i­ence.

What we of­fer:

We offer you the chance to par­ti­cip­ate in an inter­na­tional and inter­dis­cip­lin­ary research team. Research assist­ants will be involved in research using beha­vi­oral, com­pu­ta­tional and/or neur­os­cience meth­ods to study the devel­op­mental basis for decision mak­ing. The Max Planck Soci­ety is com­mit­ted to employ­ing more han­di­capped indi­vidu­als and espe­cially encour­ages them to apply. The Max Planck Soci­ety seeks to increase the num­ber of women in those areas where they are under­rep­res­en­ted and there­fore expli­citly encour­ages women to apply.

How to ap­ply:

The dead­line for sub­mit­ting applic­a­tions is Decem­ber 31st, 2018. Please send your applic­a­tion elec­tron­ic­ally to using the sub­ject line „Bew­er­bung ARCLAB2018“. Your applic­a­tion should include the fol­low­ing doc­u­ments in a single PDF doc­u­ment: (a) a short
motiv­a­tion let­ter, (b) CV, (c) school and fur­ther cer­ti­fic­ates.
