    INFLUENCE OF CATEGORISATION ON PERCEPTION: COMBINING
    COGNITIVE AND PSYCHOPHYSICAL APPROACHES

    Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research fellow to work
    with Paul Sowden on a 30-month BBSRC funded project, beginning after
    September 30th 2000, to explore the influence of categorisation on

    collaboration with Philippe Schyn's laboratory at Glasgow University.

    Applicants should have completed, or be about to complete, a PhD on a
    subject related to visual perception, ideally in an area that combines
    this with work on cognition. An ideal applicant would also have prior
    experience of running visual perception experiments; knowledge of
    visual psychophysics; programming experience in C/C++, Visual Basic or
    Delphi; skills in image processing using tools such as MATLAB;
    experience of using Cambridge Research Systems Visual Stimulus
    Generators.

    Applicants who do not meet all of the above requirements but who have
    strengths in particular areas, or who have the enthusiasm, willingness
    and aptitude to develop the required skills will also be considered.

    Salary will be in the range 16,755 - 21,435, according to age and
    experience.
