Post-doctoral Research Associate in Vision Science
Salary: £23,449 to £26,391 per annum

We wish to appoint a Research Associate, fixed-term for 23 months, to  
an ESRC-funded position, jointly supervised by Dr Hannah Smithson [1]  
and Professor John Mollon [2]. The project is aimed at understanding  
the brain's capacity to buffer sensory information, particularly  
information that is intrinsically spatiotemporal (for example,  
gestures and facial expressions).

The Durham department [3] has a thriving community of researchers in  
visual perception [4], and is well equipped with visual display  
systems (e.g. CRS ViSaGe, Maxwellian view systems), eye-trackers (e.g.  
CRS eye-trackers, Eyelink 2), motion capture systems (Optotrak), and  
calibration devices - in short - everything you could want to run  
innovative experiments on visual perception. The Department was  
awarded 5A in the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) of 2001, and a  
score of 2.7 in the RAE of 2008. The city of Durham is a very  
agreeable place to live, with easy access to beautiful countryside and  
with rapid train services to Newcastle and London.
