Linda Smith, Chen Yu, and David Crandall are inviting applications for
post-doctoral research fellowships at Indiana University.  We are seeking
ambitious young researchers to join us in the study  of early visual
environments and egocentric vision, especially as they relate to the
development of visual object recognition and early object name learning.  We
have a collected over 500 hours of home head camera (and audio) data in
infants from 3 weeks to 24 months to understand the statistical structure of
natural visual environments and how they change with development.   There
are
important open questions in low level and high level visual statistics,
object name correspondences, and experiences of specific object categories
such as faces, hands, people, and objects.  Please see www.iub.edu/~cogdev
for recent work on this project.

We have funds to hire two fellows who could define their own projects
(including new data collection) depending on their area of expertise and
interests.  Applicants with interests in early object name learning,  visual
and perceptual development, the role of sensory-motor development in
perception,  visual object recognition, natural visual statistics, machine
learning,  machine vision and egocentric vision are invited to apply.
Indiana University Bloomington provides a strong intellectual environment of
collaboration across disciplines and applicants will receive  substantive
career mentoring and support for independent research and professional
development.  This postdoc position is for 2-3 years dependent on yearly
evaluations.

*How to apply:  *Review of applications will begin immediately and continue
until filled. Please email: a cover letter including a 1-2 page statement of
research interests, a CV and contact details for 3 referees. Reference
letters may be requested for short-listed applicants. Please also attach up
to 3 representative publications or manuscripts. Send applications to:
Charlotte Wozniak, chwoznia at indiana.edu.  Please put Homeview/Egocentric
