DEPARTMENT OF PSYCHOLOGY
Post-doctoral Research Associate in Vision Science
A three year, ESRC-funded post-doctoral position, jointly supervised by
Hannah Smithson and John Mollon, is available at the Department of
Psychology, Durham University, UK. The project is aimed at understanding
the brain's capacity to buffer sensory information, particularly
information that is intrinsically spatiotemporal (for example, gestures
and facial expressions). Applicants should have a doctoral degree in
vision science, or a related discipline; or be close to submitting such
a doctoral thesis. An ability, or willingness to learn, to program is
essential. Experience with psychophysics is highly desirable.
The Durham department has a thriving community of researchers in visual
perception, and is well equipped with visual display systems (e.g. CRS
ViSaGe, Maxwellian view systems), eye-trackers (e.g. CRS eye-trackers,
Eyelink 2), motion capture systems (Optotrak), and calibration devices -
in short - everything you could want to run innovative experiments on
visual perception. The Department was awarded 5A in the latest Research
Assessment Exercise of 2001. The City of Durham is a very agreeable
place to live, with easy access to beautiful countryside and with rapid
train services to Newcastle, Edinburgh, and London.
Salary: £21,050 - £23,692 per annum
Pension: Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS)
