The Tufts University Center for Applied Brain and Cognitive Sciences is looking to hire a postdoctoral researcher with broad interests to study fundamental questions in visual attention, but with an eye toward real-world problems.
The primary project aims to understand how humans perceive and act upon groups of objects, with the goal of developing broad, psychologically grounded principles for interfaces that would allow one human to control a swarm of many robots in real time. Interest in ensemble perception, perception for action, gestalt psychology, visual attention/memory in interesting circumstances, human factors, interface design, or other related topics is ideal.
The candidate would also be expected to be involved in other Center projects, so ideally would also have interest/background in one or more of: virtual reality, augmented reality, electrophysiology, cognitive control, navigation, stress and cognition, exercise and cognition, human-robot interaction, marksmanship, or other topics discussed on our website: http://www.centerforabcs.org/
In addition to relevant theoretical background, the ideal candidate would have strong skills in behavioral experiment design, programming, and analysis. Experience with eye tracking, physiological, or electrophysiological recording and analysis is a plus.
The position starts on 1 September, or as soon after as is practical, and is for one year, with option to renew for a second year. Persons typically underrepresented in psychology or robotics research are encouraged to apply.
Please contact Matthew S. Cain <matthew.cain at tufts.edu<mailto:matthew.cain at tufts.edu>> for more information, or with a cover letter and C.V. to apply.
