Postdoctoral Fellow

Fixed Term - 2 years
Academic Level A

Salary Package: $54,252 - $65,467 pa plus 17% super

Reference No.: RSBS4809

Applications are invited for the position of Postdoctoral Fellow in the
Visual Sciences Group, Research School of Biological Sciences, Australian
National University. 

This position is funded by the ARC Centre for Excellence in Vision Science
and the successful applicant will work on a project using recent advances in
multifocal methods to assess the visual processing in multiple parts of the
visual field of normal persons and with retinal diseases such as Glaucoma
and neurodegenerative diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis, and Parkinson's
Disease (PD) [e.g. Ann Neurology 57, 904-913 (2005)]. Our new multifocal
methods assess visual function from records of electrophysiological activity
or pupil contractions using infrared video cameras, both eyes being
stimulated concurrently with up to 88 stimulus regions per eye. When coupled
with 64 channel EEG recording this produces over 10,000 responses in 4
minutes recording time.

The position offers the ability to work with persons with diverse
backgrounds to help develop new diagnostic methods. The team has a track
record of bringing new methods, such as the FDT perimeter, into clinical
practice. Depending on the candidate and the development of the project the
research may also include studies using novel texture stimuli and
investigations into pupil function. The position is available for 2 years

Further particulars, including selection criteria, are available from:
