Dear Sir: 
Please post the postdoc job ad to visionlist. Thanks, Zhiyong Yang

Postdoctoral Fellow in Visual Perception and Visual Learning
Brain and Behavior Discovery Institute
Medical College of Georgia
Augusta, GA, USA

The laboratory of Zhiyong Yang at the Brain and Behavior Discovery Institute at the Medical  College of Georgia has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral researcher. The long-term goal of the laboratory is to develop a statistical framework for understanding vision, visual system structure and function. For this purpose, we combine advanced statistical modeling with neuro-imaging and large-scale electrophysiological recording on awake, behaving animals. The current opening is for a well-trained visual psychophysicist. The first aim of the project is to investigate visual performance in natural conditions for both normal subjects and people with visual impairment. The second aim is todesign training methods and rehabilitation strategies so that the limited vision experienced by people with visual impairment can be optimized. This is a joint project with faculty members in the School of Allied Health Sciences at MCG. The ideal candidate will have a thorough knowledge of visual perception, visual learning, and research methods. He/she should have extensive research experience in visual perception. He/she should also have strong background in statistics and strong personal skills. Experience with fMRI is a plus.  There are also many other opportunities at MCG. The Brain and Behavior Discovery Institute at MCG is a new center for systems neuroscience. The Institute will consist of 14-18 laboratories performing monkey studies using tools such as computational modeling, optical imaging, fMRI, and large-scale electrical array recording. The Vision Discovery Institute at MCG has 22 faculty members including clinical ophthalmologists, vision researchers, and vision rehabilitation experts. MCG is rated as a top working place.  To apply, please send (i) curriculum vitae and (ii) a cover letter describing research accomplishments and interests, and have two letters of recommendation sent to Zhiyong Yang at the address below, preferably as email attachments. In addition please apply online at www.mcg.edu/Jobs for position # 8481.   Medical College of Georgia is an AA/EEO/Equal Access/ADA Employer. Contact Information:
