The research pro­ject CreaCogs (Cre­at­ive Cog­nit­ive Sys­tems) is search­ing for a new stu­dent research assist­ant with a back­ground in psy­cho­logy. The CreaCogs pro­ject is an inter­dis­cip­lin­ary pro­ject fun­ded by the Deutsche Forschungs­ge­meinsch­aft and deployed at FU Ber­lin. The pro­ject aims to under­stand how humans cog­nit­ively per­form cre­at­ive prob­lem solv­ing tasks, and to imple­ment the next gen­er­a­tion of arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence cre­at­ive cog­nit­ive sys­tems and tools.

Stu­dent assist­ant (f/m)

Work­ing field:

As a stu­dent assist­ant, you will join an inter­na­tional research envir­on­ment and will
  • train on design­ing empir­ical hypo­theses and trans­lat­ing these in prac­tical exper­i­ments;
  • learn how to design empir­ical exper­i­ments which are help­ful in assess­ing com­pu­ta­tional mod­els and arti­fi­cial cog­nit­ive sys­tems;
  • assist in the run­ning of empir­ical exper­i­ments, to under­stand how nat­ural and arti­fi­cial minds best per­form cer­tain cog­nit­ive tasks;
  • take part in the ana­lysis of data res­ult­ing from exper­i­ments with human par­ti­cipants, com­par­ing the res­ults or using the know­ledge gathered in arti­fi­cial cog­nit­ive sys­tems.


You are study­ing at least the fourth semester of psy­cho­logy, cog­nit­ive sci­ence or a related course of study
  • You are inter­ested in ques­tions regard­ing cre­ativ­ity, cre­at­ive prob­lem solv­ing, reas­on­ing and other cog­nit­ive abil­it­ies
  • A good found­a­tion in psy­cho­logy or cog­nit­ive sci­ence, a gen­eral under­stand­ing of empir­ical exper­i­ment­a­tion prin­ciples and data ana­lysis
  • The abil­ity to deploy data ana­lysis using python or R (or any other lan­guage) is a well appre­ci­ated plus
  • You have a high degree of com­mit­ment, com­mu­nic­a­tion skills, atten­tion to detail and curi­os­ity
  • You are a res­ults ori­ented pro­duct­ive per­son, with good time man­age­ment skills
