    A postdoctoral fellowship in the cognitive neuroscience of visual attention
    is available in the laboratory of Steven Yantis (Department of Psychology,
    Johns Hopkins University). This NIH-supported project investigates the
    neural mechanisms of top-down and bottom-up attentional control in humans
    using fMRI and psychophysical approaches. fMRI experiments are conducted
    at the F. M. Kirby Research Center for Functional Brain Imaging (see
    http://mri.kennedykrieger.org for details), which houses a 1.5T Philips
    scanner. A new 3T Philips scanner will arrive in early 2002.

    Successful candidates will have a strong background in perceptual or
    cognitive psychology (PhD required) and should be skilled in programming
    (C++, VB, and/or Matlab). Excellent training in fMRI is available.

    The position is available beginning July 1, 2001, and would extend for two
    years with the possibility of an extension. Send CV, reprints, and at
    least two letters of recommendation to the address below. Email inquiries
    are welcome.
