[visionlist] Postdoctoral position in Active Vision

A postdoctoral position is available in the Active Perception Laboratory 
<http://aplab.bcs.rochester.edu/index.html> at the University of 
Rochester to study the contributions of eye movements to the 
establishment of spatial representations and the encoding of visual 

Research in the laboratory relies on the integration of multiple 
techniques for studying human vision within the context of motor 
behavior.  Approaches include visual psychophysics under controlled 
retinal stimulation and during disruption of the visuomotor loop, 
computational modeling of the early visual pathways, and analysis of the 
retinal input signals caused by normal and abnormal motor activity.  The 
laboratory is equipped with a unique combination of facilities (several 
developed in the laboratory) for high-resolution recording of head and 
eye movements, real-time control of the visual flow on the retina during 
eye movements, retinal imaging, virtual reality, and EEG measurements.

For recent reviews of work from the laboratory please see: Rucci et al, 
Trends in Cognitive Science 2018 
and Rucci & Poletti, Annual Review of Vision Science 2015 
A full list of our publications can be found at: 

The ideal candidate will be a highly motivated individual with 
experience in vision science and data analysis and the ability to work 
well in a team.  A quantitative background and demonstrated interest in 
applying quantitative methods to neuroscience is preferable. Experience 
with signal processing, C++, computer graphics, and real-time control is 
a plus.

The Active Perception Laboratory is part of the Center for Visual 
Science at the University of Rochester, a center with a long history of 
fundamental accomplishments in vision science.  CVS is composed by more 
than 35 research laboratories creating a vibrant and highly 
collaborative scientific community.

To apply, please send curriculum vitae, brief statement of research 
interests and accomplishments, and names of two references to Dr. 
Michele Rucci (mrucci at ur.rochester.edu).
