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
Scotland, with registration number SC005336.
