Dear Visionlist Representative:


We'd like to post the following information below:


Visual Science and Visual Cognition in Imagery Analysis Research


The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) is looking to appoint
one or more post-doctoral researchers with backgrounds in vision and/or
attention to collaborate with imagery analysts and with scientists who
are seeking to improve the agency's performance in imagery analysis.

Selected scientists would have the opportunity to observe intelligence
analysts at work. They would help to outline a framework for an overall
research program, influence and evaluate tools and methods intended to
improve analyst performance, and perform research of interest to NGA.  


This appointment may include, but is not limited to, the following


*             Develop approximations of intelligence analysis tasks that
might be used in unclassified (e.g. university) research environments,

*             Identify variables that could have an impact on analyst
performance, e.g., input data, quality, presentation mode, analyst
background and expectations, work environment, etc.,

*             Identify basic research findings likely to be applicable
to the NGA setting,

*             Identify factors that limit the applicability of those
basic findings to the NGA setting, and

*             Develop methods for evaluating behavioral changes in an
operational setting.




PhD Students, Postdocs, and Faculty members on or planning to take a
sabbatical are encouraged to apply.
