Postdoctoral Fellowship to study Learning and Imitation of Movement  
Vision Laboratory, Brandeis University, Waltham MA.

A postdoctoral position in sensory/cognitive neuroscience is  
available for an immediate start date in the Vision Laboratory,  
Brandeis University, Waltham, MA (Robert Sekuler, P.I.)  An excellent  
training opportunity exists for a qualified candidate to be involved  
in research that integrates modeling with empirical work on vision,  
memory, learning, and motor control.  Supported by an NSF-funded  
project, this position will focus on the neural bases of human  
subjects' imitation and learning of sequential movements. The project  
uses a combination of novel psychophysical methods, computational  
modeling, and functional neuroimaging (EEG and ERP).

Facilities. The Vision Laboratory (http://people.brandeis.edu/ 
~sekuler/) is situated in Brandeis' Volen Center for Complex Systems,  
which offers excellent research resources and a stimulating,  
multidisciplinary environment.  Lab members have access to a high- 
density 128-channel EEG, motion capture equipment, a non-invasive,  
infrared eye-tracker, and a multi- processor, Beowulf parallel  
computing system for modeling.

Term and Salary. Funding for this position is secure for at least 2  
years with the possibility of extension. Salary will be commensurate  
with experience, in accord with NIH guidelines.

Qualifications: Candidates should hold a PhD (or equivalent) in  
neuroscience or experimental psychology, and have a strong research  
background in computational modeling of biological processes.   
Interested candidates should email a CV, including a list of 3 people  
from whom references may be obtained, to sekuler at brandeis.edu
Evaluation of applications will begin immediately until the position  
is filled.  The position is available to both US nationals and non-US
