    Neurobehavioral Systems is pleased to announce that it has received a new
    round of funding from the National Institute of Neurological Disease and
    Stroke will support the further development and free distribution of
    Presentation through 2003. We are now searching for qualified
    programmers/neuroscientists to join the Presentation development team.
    Presentation will undergo numerous changes and additions to enhance its
    capabilities for behavioral experimentation, clinical testing and
    rehabilitation. These developments will include (1) continued refinement in
    the Presentation Control Language to provide better real-time control of
    stimulus delivery based on performance and/or physiological responses, (2)
    the incorporation of streaming video capabilities using standard digital
    video formats, (3) the use of DirectSound and Direct3D to introduce
    real-time virtual-reality stimulation, (4) an interface to allow real-time
    interaction with user-created code, (5) the development of software tools
    to facilitate experimental design and analysis and to assist in the
    creation of stimuli, (6) the incorporation of new stimulation and response
    modalities using DirectX interfaces to PC-gaming accessories (e.g. force
    feedback joysticks, voice recognition modules, tactile gloves, stereo
    displays, etc.), (7) the development of a basic e-textbook lab course in
    experimental psychology and perception that will introduce students to
    perceptual and psychological phenomena, (8) the enhancement of NBS's
    website to permit the posting and exchange of user modules and experiments,
    and (9) the development of tools to calibrate visual and auditory stimuli.
    The applicant will have responsibilities in C++ application development,
    device driver coding, program documentation, web design, and user support.
    We are seeking a responsible, motivated and versatile individual who wants
    to become an integral part of a company rather than just an employee.

    - solid understanding of software design methodologies
    - extensive software development experience with C, C++ or Java
    - the ability to learn quickly, assume responsibility, and a
    commitment to company success
    Plus one or more of the following:
    - Windows application development experience
    - DirectX programming experience
    - Signal processing or real-time applications in C++, Matlab or
    - Electrophysiological and/or fMRI measures of human brain function
    - Linux or Unix software development experience
    - Graduate degree in neuroscience, psychology, computer science,
    physics, or math.
    - Web development experience

    The position offers excellent working conditions in the San Francisco Bay
    Area, with competitive salary and stock options. A minimum time commitment
    of two years is required.

      Interested candidates should email a C.V., representative software code,
    and the names of three references to:

    Peter Pebler,
