The Cardiff University School of Psychology  
(http://www.cf.ac.uk/psych/) has just announced faculty positions at  
all levels: Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Reader, and Professor (Chair).

The advertisements and application materials for the Chair positions  
are at:

academicresearchsenior/ref0036.html
and for the remaining positions at:
http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/schoolsanddivisions/divisions/humrs/jobs/ 
academicresearchsenior/ref0035.html
The research area for the positions is open, and the closing date for  
applications is 18 March. However, if you are an interested perception  
researcher, please contact one of us in the perception group soon  
(http://www.cf.ac.uk/psych/public/groups/perception.html)

The School of Psychology is one of the largest and most successful in  
the UK (http://www.cf.ac.uk/psych/).  The size of the School, together  
with its ample resources, means that teaching and administrative duties  
are not heavy. In the last UK research assessment exercise, the School  
was awarded a 5* rating- the maximum possible. An £11M (US$20.5  
million) brain imaging centre is expected to open in about a year  
(http://www.cf.ac.uk/psych/cubric/), further enhancing our world-class  
research in perception, behavioural neuroscience, cognition,  
human-computer interaction, forensic, social and developmental  
psychology.

The principal perception investigators in the psychology department are:
John Culling (auditory localisation / segmentation)
Tom Freeman (motion perception / eye, head movements)
Alex Holcombe (visual cognition / temporal integration)
Michael Lewis (face perception)
Simon Rushton (locomotion / interceptive action)
Robert Snowden (motion perception / spatial vision / attention)

The group has excellent research facilities contained within new,  
purpose-built labs equipped with state of the art technology. The group  
has links to the wider vision community within Cardiff University  
(including research in Optometry, Biomedical Sciences and Computer  
Science) and is geographically close to other concentrations of vision  
researchers in the UK.
