A Postdoctoral position is available in the lab of Guillaume MASSON
at INCM/CNRS – Marseille (France). The position is within a
collaborative project funded by the French National Research Agency
to investigate the processing of natural visual scenes. The
collaboration involves three CNRS labs (Y. Frégnac, Paris ; Y.
Trotter / S. Thorpe, Toulouse and G.S Masson, Marseille). The
Marseille project is to work on motion processing and tracking eye
movements (ocular following and smooth pursuit) in humans and/or
monkeys. The goal is explore what are the best natural statistics for
either reflexive or voluntary tracking. The work will be under the
supervision of G. Masson. State-of-the-art techniques for eye
movements recordings (EyeLinkII, Scleral search coil) are available.
A doctoral degree in psychology, physics, biology, or computer
science is prerequisite. Experience in programming visual displays or
measuring eye movements are of advantage. Salary is according to CNRS
research scale. The position is open for 18 months, starting
The members of the team Dynamics of Visual Perception and Action
(Head: Dr. G. Masson) use theoretical and experimental approaches
addressed at understanding the dynamics of visual motion processing
an its relationships with the control of goal-oriented behaviors such
as pursuit or saccades. The team is highly interdisciplinary, linking
human psychophysics, human and monkey oculomotor behavior and monkey
neurophysiology (electrophysiology and optical imaging).
