Two post-doctoral research positions are available in John Henderson's
Visual Cognition Lab, which is moving to the Psychology Department at
the University of South Carolina. The lab will house state-of-the-art
eyetracking facilities including an eyetracker interfaced with
Psychology's fMRI scanner (3T Siemens Trio).
Post-doctoral applicants should have a background in any area of visual
attention or visual cognition and an interest in eye movements and/or
scene perception. One position will focus on fMRI, and expertise in this
area is required. The other position is open, with preference for
expertise in eyetracking and/or computational modeling. Candidates with
a PhD in any of the cognitive sciences broadly defined (e.g.,
Psychology, Neuroscience, Computer Science, or a related field) are
welcome to apply. For the fMRI post-doc, experience with fMRI
experimental design, data collection, and data analysis is necessary,
and working knowledge of Matlab is highly desirable. For the second
position, programming skills (Matlab or C) and/or familiarity with
eyetracking data analysis methods are desirable. Salary will be at NIH
post-doctoral rates and commensurate with experience. Initial
appointments will be for one or two years with opportunity for extension
to three years.
Although it's late in the year, several PhD graduate assistantships are
also available for qualified students interested in working in the above
areas of visual attention and visual cognition.
Informal enquiries and formal applications should be addressed to John
Henderson (jhenderson.psy at gmail.com). Formal post-doc applications
should include CV, publication list, brief statement of research
interests, and the names and email addresses of 3 referees.
The University of Edinburgh is a charitable body, registered in
