Post Doctoral Research Fellow

Lightness perception
The post number: T.12531

A postdoctoral research post is available in Glasgow Caledonian University in the area of lightness perception. The post is funded by the EPSRC. 

We will investigate lightness perception (with an emphasis on "real objects illuminated by real light sources") using multidimensional scaling and other psychophysical techniques.

The successful candidate will be expected to have a PhD in vision sciences, neuroscience, computer science, psychology, or another relevant field; a strong research interest in visual perception; experience with research on lightness perception or some other close fields.

The post holders will be responsible for designing and conducting psychophysical experiments in lightness perception and statistical analysis of the experimental data. We have a well equipped laboratory. A MATLAB-based visual stimulus generator ViSaGe from Cambridge Research Systems Ltd will be used to carry out some experiments so experience with ViSaGe  (VSG 2/5), as well as with MATLAB and C++, would be advantageous.

Starting date is negotiable but the position is available immediately.
