AT RUTGERS UNIVERSITY* http://perceptualscience.rutgers.edu*

Rutgers University is accepting applications for pre-doctoral 
traineeships in Interdisciplinary Perceptual Science.  The program, 
funded by an NSF IGERT grant, integrates graduate training and research 
in computer modeling and human perception.  The Core Curriculum in 
Perceptual Science includes bootstrapping course work in Computer 
Science and in Psychophysics to ensure accessibility to students from a 
variety of undergraduate majors.  Students participate in 
cross-disciplinary collaborative research in topical areas such as: 
motion, multisensory integration, perception of shape and objects, eye 
movements, attention, search, visual communication, computational 
depiction, human and machine learning, and human-computer interaction.

Students apply for admission to one of the participating academic 
departments:  Psychology (New Brunswick or Newark), Computer Science, 
Biomedical Engineering, Electrical and Computing Engineering, 
Anthropology, or related programs, and indicate their interest in the 
Perceptual Science program in their personal statement.

IGERT traineeships are limited to students who are either U.S. citizens 
or permanent residents.  Support for non-citizens/permanent residents is 
also available in the form of university fellowships, graduate 
assistantships, or teaching assistantships.  All aspects of the 
Perceptual Science program are open to interested students, regardless 
of source of support.

Please bring this information to the attention of students and colleagues.
For program details, application, and contact information see: 

/Rutgers// University// and the NSF-IGERT program are committed to the 
goal of broadening participation of under-represented groups in the 
sciences and in academics. /
