Postdoctoral Research Associate

Experimental Psychology, University College London

Applications are invited for a three year postdoctoral research post  
for an EPSRC project on “Analysing Dynamic Change in Faces” with Prof  
Alan Johnston and Prof Celia Heyes (Experimental Psychology, UCL) and  
Prof Peter McOwan (Computer Science, QMUL). The project will develop  
new tools for photorealistic facial animation, which will be exploited  
to study the perception of dynamic events through psychophysical  
experiments on facial movement recognition and imitation. A computer  
scientist tasked with developing photorealistic animation has already  
been appointed. The new research associate will join Prof Johnston’s  
lab and will preferably be an experimental psychologist with excellent  
technical and computing skills. However, candidates from the  
biological and numerate sciences with an interest in face perception  
are encouraged to apply. The salary will be at grade 7 (£27,466-£29138  
+ £2649) depending on knowledge and experience.

Applications (e-mail or hard copy) by covering letter, CV, the names  
and addresses of three referees and Personal Information form (the  
latter available at: http://www.psychol.ucl.ac.uk/info/Personal_Information.doc 
  ), to Anouchka Sterling, Department of Psychology, University  
College London, Gower Street , London WC1E 6BT, a.sterling at ucl.ac.uk.  
If applying by e-mail please submit all requested information in one  
pdf file named by your surname eg Smith.pdf. Further information  
concerning the posts can be found at http://www.psychol.ucl.ac.uk/info/johnston_rf.htm

The closing date for applications is 16th May 2008, with the post to  
start as soon as possible thereafter.  Candidates attending the Vision  
Sciences Society meeting can discuss the post with Prof Johnston at  
the meeting and should send a preliminary application to Anouchka  
Sterling prior to the meeting.
