Martin has accepted an offer from Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin to become a Heisenberg professor for Experimental Psychology: Active Perception and Cognition (or, in German: Allgemeine Psychologie: Aktive Wahrnehmung und Kognition) and set up a new group at the Psychology Department. He has been inaugurated on Tuesday. The Heisenberg professorship has been awarded to Martin by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), providing the university with additional funding to facilitate the pursuit of new directions of research.
Our lab is going to move to the Psychology Department in just a few months, once the lab space and offices have been finished. We are still maintaining a strong connection to the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin, and also the Berlin School of Mind and Brain.
This is an exciting step for the lab as it will allow us to consolidate our research program in Berlin and open up opportunities to extend it in new directions. Stay tuned for that.
