[visionlist] UK Postdoctoral Position

Wann JP J.P.Wann at rhul.ac.uk
Mon Feb 25 13:10:52 GMT 2008

Postdoctoral Research Associate

Judgments of vehicle approach amongst primary school children and children with Developmental Coordination Disorder.


Salary in the range £24,466 to £28,800 inclusive of London Allowance.


A 3 year ESRC funded postdoctoral position is available working with Prof John Wann and Dr Kate Wilmut to study young children's sensitivity to motion cues that would allow safe and reliable road crossing.  Applicants should have experience of conducting human behavioral research ideally with some relevance to perceptual processing.  Experience in simple programming tasks, in any language, is desirable as the successful applicant will be trained in the design of virtual environments for road simulations.  Experience in testing children would be useful but not essential provided applicants express an interest in developmental themes.  A post-graduate student will be joining the project in Sept 2008 and the successful post-doctoral candidate will have the opportunity to contribute to post-graduate supervision.   Because the project involves working with children any offer of appointment will be dependent upon an applicant being approved by CRB (police records check) regarding prior convictions. 


The post is available from April 2008 and appointment before June 2008 would be desirable.  Informal enquiries to John Wann  (j.p.wann at rhul.ac.uk; tel. +44(0) 1784 443526 ) are welcome.  For further details see:  http://www.pc.rhul.ac.uk/
