No, not that CPS.  The Center for Perceptual Systems wants your bright
undergraduates interested in vision, visual perception, and behavior to
apply for graduate training with us.  If you know anyone that fits the
bill, please send them the attached flyer and encourage them to apply!

More info on who we are:

Housed in the Department of Psychology, the Institute for Neuroscience, and
the Center for Perceptual Systems, our program is a vibrant, growing, and
highly-collaborative collection of research laboratories boasting
world-class facilities for conducting research in visual perception,
visually guided actions, and the underlying neural mechanisms. These
facilities include fMRI, eye tracking, head and body tracking, face and
facial expression tracking, virtual reality, the collection of 3D
time-varying natural scene statistics, computationally-intensive modeling
and computer graphics, psychophysics, 2 photon microscopy, optical imaging,
and electrophysiology. Funding opportunities are available through an NIH
training grant, Research Assistantships, Fellowships, and Teaching
Assistantships.  Faculty actively engaging in interdisciplinary research in
the program include:

Dana Ballard: computational neuroscience, machine learning, visuo-motor

Larry Cormack: natural scene statistics; data analysis and visualization

Bill Geisler: vision and natural scene statistics; computational modeling

Robbe Goris: Computational neuroscience, psychophysics, electrophysiology

Mary Hayhoe: eye movements, attention, virtual environments.

Alex Huk: sensory-motor decisions, neural mechanisms of motion and depth

Ian Nauhaus:  neural coding, cortical organization, computational

Nicholas Priebe: neural coding in early visual cortex, intracellular

Eyal Seidemann: optical imaging and electrophysiology of early visual cortex

More information on our research can be found at www.cps.utexas.edu, and we
encourage you to contact investigators directly if you are interested in
their research.

Folks can apply via the Ph.D. programs in Neuroscience


512-471-3640,  neuroscience at mail.clm.utexas.edu

and Psychology


512-471-6398, gradoffice at psy.utexas.edu

*Interested students are strongly encouraged to apply to both programs*.
