Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the Hank 
Virtual Environments Laboratory at the University of Iowa.  Our 
research focuses on the use of virtual environments as a medium for 
the study of human behavior. Our current research has two primary 
thrusts: (1) a computational component directed at advancing scenario 
modeling techniques used to create realistic and controlled 
conditions for conducting experiments, and (2) an experimental 
component investigating children's bicycle riding behavior in 
simulated traffic and people's distance perception in real and 
virtual environments. 

Applicants should have a strong research record in either the 
development of virtual environment/interactive simulation software 
and technology and/or the use of virtual environments to study human 
action, perception, or visual cognition.  The successful candidate 
will be able to carry out original research in collaboration with 
graduate students and faculty in the lab and contribute (to a limited 
extent) to teaching. A PhD degree (or the equivalent) in computer 
science, psychology, or related disciplines within the last five 
years is strongly preferred.  Depending on the qualifications of the 
fellow, the research may be more focused on the computational or 
experimental aspects of the project.  The position is available 

The project is supported through grants from the National Institutes 
for Heath and the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control. 
Recent support includes grants from the National Science Foundation 
and Ford Motor Company.

Applications including a CV, copies of (or pointers to) selected 
publications, two letters of reference, and a short statement of 
research interests should be sent to:

			Jodie Plumert (jodie-plumert at uiowa.edu)
