Postdoctoral Fellow


Fixed Term - 2 years
Academic Level A

Salary Package: $52,672 - $63,561pa plus 17% super

Reference No.: RSBS3837

The Research School of Biological Sciences seeks a Postdoctoral Fellow to
undertake research on a project which uses our recent advances in multifocal
electrophysiology and in the synthesis and use of novel texture patterns to
assess the visual and cognitive processing of persons with three
neurodegenerative diseases: Alzheimer's Disease (AD), Multiple Sclerosis,
and Parkinson's Disease (PD).

One part of the proposal is to extend our new multifocal
electrophysiological method for diagnosis and monitoring of MS to PD and AD
patients [Ann Neurology 57, 904-913 (2005)]. The second part of the study
seeks to exploit our recent advances in understanding texture vision, and
methods for generating such stimuli, and to examine the perceptual abilities
of patients and normal subjects with these novel stimuli. The objective is
to develop inexpensive and non-invasive means for quantifying progression in
these diseases for the purposes of diagnosis and monitoring of treatment.

Postdoctoral Fellow


Fixed Term - 1 year
Academic Level A

Salary Package: $52,672 - $63,561pa plus 17% super

Reference No.: RSBS3838

The Research School of Biological Sciences seeks a Postdoctoral Fellow to
undertake a project funded by the NH&MRC and a commercial partner, Seeing
Machines Ltd.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common neurodegenerative disease in the
western world amongst persons of working age and is estimated to cost
Australia $2 billion p.a. (Access-Economics 2005). Early diagnosis and good
management of treatments are critical to good outcomes.

Our recent discoveries mean this can be perhaps be achieved at relatively
low cost. The project involves comparing results from magnetic resonance
imaging (MRI) of the brain and the new ANU binocular multifocal visual
evoked potentials (mfVEPs). The mfVEPs will be recorded using a 32 channel
EEG and responses to 84 test regions per eye, yielding a total of 5376
responses, will be concurrently determined.

Applicants should have a PhD, experience with Matlab, analysis of MRI data,
human electrophysiology, neurodegenerative disorders, multifocal methods,
and statistics.

ARC Centre Fellow


Fixed Term - 3 to 5 years (subject to funding avai
Academic Level B or C

Salary Package: $66,764 - $93,181 pa plus 17% super

Reference No.: JC3829

The ARC Centre of Excellence in Vision Science is seeking to appoint a
dynamic research scientist at its ANU node to compliment the research
undertaken within the Centre. Current research is focused on unravelling the
cellular basis of visual sensing and processing, revealing the algorithms
that underlie the visual control of behaviour and perception, and on
discovering the cellular mechanisms that make the eye and retina stable, and
whose breakdown causes blindness.

Applicants should have demonstrated research experience in at least one of
the Centre's key research areas and the ability to run an internationally
competitive research programme in your chosen area of expertise.

Further information on the Centre's research activities is available at:
www.vision.edu.au <http://www.vision.edu.au/>
