Full-time Post-Doctoral Position Available at Vanderbilt University

Post-doctoral fellow is needed starting September 1, 2005 for a 1-year 
commitment to design, implement and publish experiments on visual 
attention and motion perception. Funding is provided by a NIH R01 grant 
that supports research in the Seiffert lab on attentional tracking and 
the perception of control. The goal of the research is to understand 
how visual attention interacts with motion perception and visuo-motor 
systems to track the motion of target objects. The lab uses a 
combination of techniques including psychophysics, traditional 
cognitive experiments, and functional neuroimaging (fMRI). In 
September, the lab will have two graduate students, two research 
assistants and two undergraduate students. Successful candidates for 
the post-doc position should have experience in vision science, 
cognitive psychology, computer programming, and/or functional 
neuroimaging. Candidates with experience studying motor performance or 
the neural basis of motor control, but with an interest in studying 
visual perception, will also be considered. Vanderbilt University has 
an active Vision Research Center 
(http://vision-research.vanderbilt.edu/) and a strong Cognitive and 
Integrative Neuroscience Center (http://cicn.vanderbilt.edu/). In 
addition, the Vanderbilt Post Doctoral Association 
(http://bret.mc.vanderbilt.edu/postdoc/html/postdoc_PDA.htm) is a very 
supportive group that helps postdoctoral fellows gain information about 
managing a lab, preparing for job interviews, writing grants and other 
useful skills.

To apply for the position, please send a one-page research statement 
describing your goals and interests, a CV, 3 letters of reference and 
examples of recent publications to Asst. Prof. Adriane Seiffert by 
email or regular mail. Salary will be commensurate with experience. 
Vanderbilt University is an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to 
excellence through diversity.
