*Postdoctoral Researcher Position: Computational Cognitive Neuroscience *

The Vision & Image Understanding laboratory in the Department of 
Psychology, University of California , Santa Barbara is considering 
applications for a position as a post-doctoral researcher in 
computational cognitive neuroscience of visual attention, learning and 
decision making. The successful candidate will participate in projects 
at the new UCSB Brain Imaging Center (http://www.brainimaging.ucsb.edu/) 
integrating computational modeling and psychophysics with computational 
approaches to neuroimaging (FMRI and EEG). The project will involve 
collaborations with the Laboratory for Brain, Attention and Behavior at 
UCSB (Dr. Barry Giesbrecht, http://www.psych.ucsb.edu/labs/giesbrecht/) 
and the Cognitive Neuroimaging Laboratory at the University of 
Birmingham, UK (http://psg275.bham.ac.uk/cnil/index.html, Dr. Zoe 
Kourtzi). The position is for one year (renewable for up to 3 years). 
The post-doctoral researcher will also have the opportunity to 
participate in a variety of ongoing neuroscience and cognitive 
neuroscience activities sponsored by the new UCSB Sage Center for the 
Study of the Mind (http://www.sagecenter.ucsb.edu/).

Requirements: The successful candidate should have a strong technical 
background and a Ph.D. in any of the following: Vision Science, 
Perceptual Psychology, Computer Science, Engineering, Physics, Medical 
Physics. Experience with FMRI, programming (C, MatLab, or IDL), 
knowledge of multivariate mathematics and pattern classifiers, 
statistics, and image processing required. Training and research 
experience in visual psychophysics and computational modeling of vision 
preferable.

The department is especially interested in candidates who can contribute 
to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through 
research and service.
