St. Andrews, founded in 1413, is the oldest University in Scotland, located on
the east coast, north of Edinburgh.  The School of Psychology is one of the
best in the UK (maximum 5* rating at last RAE), and hosts a highly active and
successful Perception and Performance group (Foldiak, Harris, Hibbard,
Jentzsch, Perrett).  We will soon have opportunities at several levels (summer
06 deadlines, appointment 06-07).  For further details, contact one of the
group or speak to Julie Harris or Paul Hibbard at the VSS meeting, or email:
