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
