Sun Mar 10 13:37:53 -04 2019
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.

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
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.
