Post-doctoral research position in visual perception
Location: Laboratory of Experimental Psychology, University of Leuven (K.U.Leuven), Belgium
Start date: Fall 2010
Contact: Robbe Goris
The Laboratory of Experimental Psychology has a position available for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work with Dr. Robbe Goris. The project is supported by the Research Fund of the K.U.Leuven for a period of two years and will study the strategies employed by people with visual impairments to perform fundamental visual tasks.
We seek a creative individual with a strong background in computational vision and/or clinical vision science. The successful applicant will collaborate in designing and elaborating computational models of fundamental visual tasks (e.g., contrast-processing, eye movement strategies in visual search) and designing and conducting psychophysical experiments to study the strategies employed by people with central visual field loss to perform these tasks.
Dr. Goris is member of the Laboratory of Experimental Psychology (LEP) at the University of Leuven and works in the research unit of prof. Dr. Johan Wagemans. This multidisciplinary research group, located in the city of Leuven, has excellent laboratory facilities for psychophysical experiments. Please visit: http://ppw.kuleuven.be/labexppsy/gestaltrevision/index.html for more information on this group. Clinical populations are accessible through ties with University Hospitals Leuven.
The ideal applicants will have completed (or be about to complete) their PhD, will have computer programming skills (MatLab or C), a strong background in visual psychophysics, experience with computational modelling and an interest in working in the area of low-vision research. The position is available for two years. Starting date is October 2010, with some flexibility. Applicants should send their CV, research statement and contact information for at least 2 referees (in pdf-format) to Robbe.Goris at psy.kuleuven.be<mailto:Robbe.Goris at psy.kuleuven.be>.
