School of Psychology, University of Southampton
 
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position in the lab of
Dr. Erich Graf at the University of Southampton (UK).  Ongoing projects
include studies on binocular rivalry and motion perception; we are primarily
interested in understanding the mechanisms used to disambiguate bi-stable or
complex stimuli.  Some of these projects are done in collaboration with Dr.
Wendy Adams.  The post is funded by the BBSRC and includes substantial
funding to work at Utrecht University on a collaborative set of fMRI
projects with Dr. Raymond van Ee¹s group, exploring the storage of visual
information for perceptual decision-making.
 
You must have a PhD in some aspect of visual perception. It would be
preferable if the you had prior experience with fMRI, and experience in
programming using Matlab and C, under Mac OSX.
 
The University of Southampton is ranked among the top 10 UK institutions for
research excellence, and the School of Psychology is one of the largest in
the UK with an international reputation in all areas of research activity. 
The Cognitive Psychology group has eye-tracking equipment, haptic
force-feedback systems, and a variety of experimental setups for presenting
visual stimuli.  For more detail, visit the School website
