Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position to study issues
in multisensory perception. The research involves psychophysics
methodology possibly combined with fMRI and/or statistical
modeling. The projects will aim to unravel the interactions between
visual, auditory, and tactile perceptual processes at various levels
of inquiry ranging from phenomenology, to underlying brain mechanisms,
to the governing computational principles. The successful candidate
will have a Ph.D. in Psychology, Neuroscience, Computer Science,
Engineering or a related field. Some experience in Psychophysics is
required, and any experience in fMRI or modeling will be a strong
advantage. Expertise in Matlab and/or C in a Mac or UNIX environment
is highly desirable.

The research will be performed primarily in the laboratory of Ladan
Shams at UCLA (http://vmpl.psych.ucla.edu), and partly in the
laboratory of Shinsuke Shimojo at Caltech (http://neuro.caltech.edu). 
Thus, the successful candidate will be affiliated with both UCLA 
and Caltech.

The initial appointment will be for one and a half years. The starting
date is ASAP.

Please send inquiries or CVs plus the names of 3 references to:
