Eye movements and visual attention:

A postdoctoral position is available in E. Kowler's lab at Rutgers 
University for the study of eye movements and visual attention.   
Ongoing projects are using concurrent measurements of eye movements and 
perception to investigate the attentional mechanisms responsible for the 
planning and guidance of eye movements.  Studies will focus on the 
coordination of eye movements and attention during natural task 
performance, and the consequences of attentional deployment for natural 
visual perception.  For additional description of the laboratory 
and research projects, see http://www.rci.rutgers.edu/~kowler 
<http://www.rci.rutgers.edu/%7Ekowler>.

The ideal candidate would have a doctoral degree in some aspect of  
visual perception involving psychophysical or computational  
approaches.  However, applicants with other academic backgrounds will be 
considered.   Technical qualifications include experience with 
programming  languages such as Matlab and C++.

Applicants should send a CV, a statement of research accomplishments and 
interests, copies of 2-3 selected papers, and names of two references 
to:    kowler at rci.rutgers.edu <mailto:kowler at rci.rutgers.edu>.
Address:  Eileen Kowler, Department of Psychology, Rutgers University, 
152  Frelinghuysen Road, Piscataway, NJ 08854.  Rutgers University is an 
Equal Opportunity Employer.

The Rutgers environment:  The postdoctoral student joining the 
laboratory would become part of the growing Rutgers community in 
Interdisciplinary Perceptual Science, which comprises scientists and 
students at all levels from the Departments of Psychology,  Computer 
Science, Computer Engineering, and Biomedical  Engineering, as well as 
the Rutgers Center for Cognitive Science.   This community is linked by 
a new Graduate fellowship program and Core Curriculum in 
Interdisciplinary Perceptual Science, funded by an NSF IGERT training 
grant.  For further information about the Perceptual Science programs,
