Announcing a postdoctoral position in Stephen Mitroff's Visual 
Cognition Lab at Duke University. The postdoc will collaborate on 
psychophysical studies that investigate individual differences in, 
and the malleability of, visual perception and attention. Studies 
focus on what makes one individual a better visual searcher than 
another, how visual search abilities can be enhanced and trained, and 
how visual cognition can be altered through prior experiences and 
training regimens. The research program focus on several applied 
topics including athletics, security, and military searches. 
Knowledge of vision research and programming abilities 
(MATLAB/Psychtoolbox preferred) are required. Given funding sources, 
the position is limited to US citizens and Permanent Residents. The 
position is for one year with an option for longer, contingent upon 
continued funding. The earliest start date is August 1st, 2009 but 
later is possible. Interested applicants should email Stephen Mitroff 
at mitroff at duke.edu and include a CV and the names and contact 
information for 2 references. Information about the research program
