Postdoctoral Position in Visual and Space Perception

Visual Perception and Cognition Laboratory, University of Louisville,
Kentucky, USA

A postdoctoral position is available immediately at the University of
Louisville.  The research investigates how spatial layout, together with
the visual system's intrinsic bias, determines space perception and
guides action in the intermediate distance range
(www.louisville.edu/~z0he0002).  Studies are conducted in the real world
setting (indoors/outdoors) and/or in the virtual environment setting
created with the virtual reality technology.  The ideal candidate will
have a Ph.D. degree in Psychology, Neuroscience, or related disciplines,
with technical and research experiences in Human Perception and
Cognition studies.  The candidate should also have an expertise in
computer programming (e.g., Open GL, C++, Matlab).  Having research
experience using the virtual reality system would be a plus.  The salary
will be commensurate with the NIH guidelines and includes University
benefits such as health insurance.  The position is for one year and is
renewable upon performance and fund availability.  To apply, please send
a curriculum vita, sample publications/pre-publications, a one-page
statement of research interests, and contact information (email and
telephone) of 2-3 referees, to Dr. Zijiang He, Department of
Psychological and Brain Sciences, University of Louisville, Louisville,
KY 40292, USA.  The University of Louisville is an Equal
Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.  A potential second
postdoctoral position on surface perception, attention and binocular
rivalry is also available.  For further inquiries, please email
