    A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the lab of Robert Jacobs,
    Center for Visual Science and the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences,
    University of Rochester. The lab focuses on experimental and computational
    studies of visual learning with respect to mid-level and high-level visual
    functions, particularly on experience-dependent perception of visual depth.
    Some projects in our lab study observers' abilities to recalibrate their
    interpretations of individual visual cues, other projects study how observers
    adapt their visual cue combination strategies, and still other projects examine
    how information from other perceptual modalities (such as haptic or auditory
    percepts) influence how observers interpret and combine information from visual
    cues. We have a well-equipped lab that includes access to a wide variety of
    virtual reality equipment for creating visual, auditory, and haptic environments.
