The University of Rochester seeks an outstanding postdoctoral fellow 
with research interests in the field of virtual reality-based learning 
and vision in humans to work as part of a multi-investigator and 
multi-institutional program on critical period and brain plasticity 
using amblyopia as the model case. The overarching goal is to develop 
better behavioral training for treating amblyopia in adults. The 
successful candidate will help design and implement a VR-based video 
game to rehabilitate depth perception and will design and run 
experiments on plasticity and learning in stereopsis. The candidate will 
work primarily with Professor D. Bavelier and D. Knill within the Center 
for Visual Sciences and the Departments of Brain & Cognitive Sciences at 
the U. of Rochester. The successful candidate should have a strong 
background in vision, and in particular in issues related to depth 
perception. A strong programming background in C++ and 3D graphics is 
highly valued.

Applicants should send a letter describing their graduate training and
