Post-doctoral position to study vision loss and recovery in amblyopia.


A post-doctoral position is available at the University of 
California, Berkeley to study both the loss and the rehabilitation of 
vision in adults with amblyopia. The research is part of a 
collaborative research project funded by the James S.  McDonnell 
Foundation involving 6 labs to explore new approaches to  the 
rehabilitation of amblyopia in human and animal models. This 
position, in Dennis Levi's laboratory involves studies in humans.
Techniques may include psychophysics, FMRI, EEG and modeling.
The post-doctoral fellow will attend meetings of the consortium and 
may also have opportunities to do research in the other participating 
labs [Drs. Daphne Maurer & Terri Lewis, McMaster University; Dr. 
Daphne Bavelier, Rochester; Dr. Takao Hensch, Harvard; Dr. Bruce 
McCandliss, Cornell; Dr. Donald Mitchell, Dalhousie]. The position 
affords an unusual opportunity to be part of cutting edge  research 
on visual plasticity.

Interested candidates should have, or be about to obtain, a PhD.
Knowledge of vision, psychophysical techniques, graphics programming 
(e.g. Matlab, Psychtoolbox or VSG) and/or brain imaging analysis 
would be an asset. The position can start anytime
After July 1, 2007.

Please send a letter of interest, a CV, and the names of 3 references
