Could you please post the following postdoc offer on VSlist?
Thanks in advance,
Best regards,
Françoise Vitu


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.
