Postdoctoral Position - Visual Perception

Expressions of interest are sought for a postdoctoral research

1999, and will initially be for 1 year's duration with the
possibility of an additional 1 to 2-year extension (subject
to a performance review).

Aside from texture, my interests include surface perception and

graphics routines, (ii) a 21" monochrome monitor, and (iii) several
VisionWorks stereo goggles.

The candidate should have a doctoral degree in a discipline relevant
to vision research. Computer-programming skills (preferably in C/C++)
and familiarity with VSG and/or VisionWorks systems will be

Deakin is a multi-campus university and the proposed research will
