Dear all,

Please see below for an advertisement for a Postdoctoral Researcher in  
Face Recognition (emotion and/or identity), at the Australian National  
University, Canberra, Australia.

Many thanks,
Romina Palermo and Elinor McKone

Postdoctoral Fellow in Face Recognition

We are seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow in human face identity and/or
expression recognition, duration 2-3 years, to work with Associate
Professor Elinor McKone and Dr Romina Palermo on Australian
Research Council funded projects.
The successful applicant will be a strong researcher with PhD in
Psychology, Cognitive Neuroscience, or related field, with good
knowledge of theory and experimental methods in the human face
recognition literature. Exact project topics are open to negotiation
depending on skills and interests of the appointee, within a focus of
exploring the perceptual factors associated with face identity and/or
face expression processing, including individual differences in the
typical population and abilities in special groups such as developmental
prosopagnosia, primarily in adults and also potentially in children.
Methods will include primarily behavioural techniques, but there is an
opportunity to use Event Related Potentials and visual scan paths for
suitably experienced candidates. Access to other neuroimaging
methods (e.g., fMRI) is also available through the ARC Centre of
Excellence in Cognition and Its Disorders.
The position is in the Department of Psychology at the Australian
National University. For an appointee with PhD, the salary is a
minimum of AU$71,189 (approx US$70,000; €52,000) plus 17%
Full details of the position and the application process can be found at
