Full-time Post-Doctoral Position Available at Vanderbilt University

Post-doctoral fellow is needed starting late summer 2008 for at least  
a 1-year commitment to design, implement and publish experiments on  
visual attention and motion perception. The goal of the research is  
to understand how visual attention interacts with motion perception  
and visuo-motor systems to track the motion of target objects.  The  
lab uses a combination of techniques including psychophysics,  
traditional cognitive experiments, and functional neuroimaging  
(fMRI). Successful candidates for the post-doc position should have  
experience in vision science, cognitive psychology, computer  
programming, and/or functional neuroimaging. Candidates with  
experience studying motor performance or the neural basis of motor  
control, but with an interest in studying visual perception, will  
also be considered. Vanderbilt University has an active Vision  
Research Center (http://vision-research.vanderbilt.edu/) and a strong  
Cognitive and Integrative Neuroscience Center (http:// 
cicn.vanderbilt.edu/). In addition, the Vanderbilt Post Doctoral  
Association (http://bret.mc.vanderbilt.edu/postdoc/html/ 
postdoc_PDA.htm) is a very supportive group that helps postdoctoral  
fellows gain information about managing a lab, preparing for job  
interviews, writing grants and other useful skills.

To apply for the position, please send a one-page research statement  
describing your goals and interests, a CV, 3 letters of reference and  
examples of recent publications to Asst. Prof. Adriane Seiffert by  
email or regular mail.  Salary will be commensurate with experience.  
Vanderbilt University is an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to  
excellence through diversity.
