Applications are invited for a two-year post-doctoral position at
Stanford University, using functional magnetic resonance imaging
(fMRI) to study visual motion perception, stereo vision, pattern
discrimination, reading, and/or the control of eye movements.
Information describing recent research in my laboratory on these
topics can be found at the web site listed below.

The key job skills will include:
- Matlab programming is essential.
- Knowledge of basic vision science is required (visual
psychophysics, anatomy and physiology of the visual system,
theory and computational models).
- Experience designing and performing psychophysical experiments
is preferred.
- Experience with fMRI is desirable but not required.

The start time is negotiable, but no later than June 1, 2000. Salary
level will depend upon the applicant's experience, but will be no less
than $26,000 per year. Stanford University is an equal opportunity

To apply, please send a vita containing a brief summary of research
experience. Please include the names of at least two references.
