RESEARCH POSITION AVAILABLE IN VISION/COGNITIVE SCIENCE

START DATE: June '99 (or shortly after graduation)

This position is in a lab that conducts psychophysical research
primarily in the area of visual attention. Most experiments test healthy
young adults. Some projects include clinical psychophysical testing of
patients. The position involves all stages of the research process from
planning experiments to helping to write up results for publication, but
the main focus is data collection and analysis.

This position requires a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree.
A major in psychology or related field would be plus, but is not
necessary. Some research experience would also be useful. A candidate
should have some previous experience with personal computers and/or
workstations and should be willing to learn how to use our statistics,
graphics, and word processing packages. Programming experience is not
necessary, but familiarity with C and/or Matlab would be a plus.

A candidate must be able to work independently and should be able to
interact with subjects in a tactful and pleasant manner. This is an
excellent position for a new college graduate who wants to spend 2 or
more years in a research setting before going on to graduate school. A
two year commitment is required.
