    The Department of Medical Physics & Imaging at Cedars Sinai Medical
    Center (an affiliate of UCLA School of Medicine) invites applications
    for two new postdoctoral openings (positions available immediately).

    The postdoctoral fellow will participate in a Cedars Sinai/NASA Ames
    collaborative project investigating and modeling saccades and perceptual
    decisions during visual search. The position is based at Cedars Sinai
    in Los Angeles but involves occasional travel to NASA Ames Research
    Center in the Bay Area.
    Requirements: A Ph.D. in Psychology, Visual Science, Computer Science
    or related field. Experience in visual psychophysics, computational
    modeling, and statistics. Familiarity with signal detection theory a
    plus. Position is for two years.

    The postdoctoral fellow will participate in a NIH sponsored project to
    develop models of visual detection and identification of targets
    embedded in complex backgrounds with a special emphasis on medical image

    backgrounds. The models are to be used to perform automated evaluation
    and optimization of image quality. This is a two year position
    renewable for a third year.
    Requirements: A Ph.D. in Computer Science, Physics, Visual Science,
    Medical Physics, Psychology or related field. Experience in image
    processing and analysis, signal processing, visual perception and
    psychophysics, and statistics.

    Cedars Sinai Medical Center is located in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles,
    California. The Department of Medical Physics & Imaging consists of an
    interdisciplinary group of researchers working in an array of problems
    ranging from intra-vascular radiation treatment of coronary disease and
    computer based diagnosis of medical images to basic human vision and
    medical image perception. The Vision & Image Understanding Laboratory
    has ongoing projects (with a strong emphasis on computational modeling)
    on visual detection and identification in complex backgrounds, texture
    synthesis, letter identification, visual search, attention, and medical
    image perception, and maintains active collaborations with the vision
    group at NASA Ames.
