Could you please post the following postdoc offer on VSlist?
Thanks in advance,
POSTDOC ON EYE MOVEMENTS IN MARSEILLE, FRANCE
Applications are invited for a 18-month postdoctoral position on
eye-movement control. The project focuses on the study and modelling of
low-level visuo-motor processes associated with saccade programming in
basic oculomotor tasks and in reading. Experience in the field of active
vision will be preferred, including experience in oculomotor and visual
neurophysiology, ‘psychophysics’ or eye movements in reading and/or
scene perception. Modelling skills/experience would also be preferred.
The position will start in January 2009. The salary will be determined
according to the CNRS standards (about 1900-2000€ net per month).
Speaking French will be a plus, but fluency in English is the minimal
The post-doc will be based in Marseille and will work with Françoise
Vitu in the Perception & Attention group of the Laboratory of Cognitive
Psychology (LPC) in Marseille. However, the project will be conducted in
close collaboration with R. Engbert and R. Kliegl (Department of
Psychology, University of Potsdam, Germany); in that frame, the post-doc
is expected to make several short visits to Potsdam (in the Berlin
area). The LPC is part of the Pôle 3C (‘Cerveau’ -brain, ‘Comportement’
-behaviour & ‘Cognition’) and the larger Brain and Cognition institute
(‘IFR Sciences du Cerveau et de la Cognition’) in Marseille. It is a
great scientific environment which will give the post-doc the
opportunity to interact with researchers in different areas of
experimental psychology and cognitive neurosciences, including experts
in the neurophysiology of oculomotor control, vision psychophysics,
computational modelling and psycholinguistics.
Marseille is a very lively city on the Mediterranean south cost of
France. It is one of the sunniest places in France and in Europe.
Surrounded by the sea and the mountains, it is one of the best spots for
diving and climbing, and it is less than 2 hours from the Alpes where
skiing is great in the winter.
A curriculum vitae and a list of publications should be sent directly to
Françoise Vitu-Thibault (Francoise.Vitu-Thibault at univ-provence.fr). The
position will remain open until filled.
