YORK UNIVERSITY CENTRE FOR VISION RESEARCH
TORONTO, CANADA
 
A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of James Elder at 
the York University Centre for Vision Research in Toronto, Canada.  We 
seek an individual to participate in an ongoing interdisciplinary 
programme of research in the psychophysical study and computational 
modeling of human vision.  The candidate should have a background in 
computational modeling of human vision, and strong programming skills. 
 
Areas of interest for the laboratory include:
 
Natural scene statistics
Classification image and reverse correlation techniques
Neural modeling
Object detection and localization in 2D and 3D
Contour processing
Perceptual organization
Perception of shadows
Shape coding
Visual attention and eye movements
Face perception
 
The salary for this position is competitive and the starting date is 
flexible.  The position is for one year, with the possibility of 
renewal.  Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.  
International applications are encouraged. 
 
The York Centre for Vision Research is an interdisciplinary centre 
spanning the laboratories of 23 faculty members in the Departments of 
Psychology, Computer Science, Biology and Philosophy.  Members pursue 
fundamental and applied research in human and computer vision, 
vestibular and auditory perception, eye-movements, virtual reality and 
robotics.  The Centre receives substantial research funding from a 
variety of sources, and is very well equipped with attentive sensing 
devices, stereo rigs, immersive reality environments, advanced graphics 
engines, eye- and head-tracking devices, stereo projection systems and 
head-mounted displays.
