The Department of Psychology has a national and international reputation
as an outstanding mid-sized Department in terms of its high-quality and
congenial academic staff, exceptional facilities and support staff, and
well-regarded research and teaching.

The Department is seeking to appoint a lecturer in the area of
Perception. The appointee will be expected to teach undergraduate
subjects in Perception and supervise research students at Honours and
Postgraduate level. Some teaching in general introductory courses and
Statistics/Research Methods may be required. Good laboratory space is
available and is well resourced with several Macintosh computers, a
Silicon Graphics Indigo computer and an Innisfree Picasso system.
Applicants must hold a PhD, be eligible for membership of APS, and be
developing a research program in human Perception, including the use of
computational modelling. A good publication record evidencing this, and
success in attracting research funding, is desirable, as is documented
teaching ability at a range of levels.

The appointee will join the Cognitive Neuroscience Research Group within
the Department, which currently has active programs in the areas of
Learning, Memory, Cognition and Psychophysiology.
The appointee will be expected to develop collaborative research
projects which integrate with some of these areas, and to facilitate the
addition of modelling techniques in a range of new and current research
projects within the Group.
