The Institute for Collaborative Biotechnologies (ICB) at the University 
of California, Santa Barbara, is actively seeking a Postdoctoral Scholar 
to conduct research in the *Vision and Image Understanding Laboratory* 
(https://viu.psych.ucsb.edu <https://viu.psych.ucsb.edu/>) with ICB 
faculty Principal Investigator *Miguel Eckstein.* The laboratory is 
looking for individuals with particular emphasis in the area of 
computational human vision, visual search, attention and learning, eye 
movements applied to problems in spatial reasoning, navigation and/or 
medical imaging.

The research seeks to answer fundamental questions about vision in 
humans and machines. The Postdoctoral Scholar will have the opportunity 
to participate in activities with the Institute for Collaborative 
Biotechnologies, the Sage Center for the Study of the Mind 
(https://www.sagecenter.ucsb.edu <https://www.sagecenter.ucsb.edu/>) and 
the Mind and Machine Intelligence Initiative 
(https://mind-machine.ucsb.edu <https://mind-machine.ucsb.edu/>).

*Job Responsibilitiesps*
It is expected that the postdoctoral scholar will work closely with 
other postdoctoral scholars and Ph.D. students in the project to design 
and conduct studies gathering human psychophysics, eye movement and/or 
human neuro-imaging data. They will assess deep learning models and 
develop computational models of human visual search, scene 
understanding, navigation; write reports and peer-review publications 
summarizing the studies; present at national/international conferences.

The Institute for Collaborative Biotechnologies is an Army-sponsored 
University Affiliated Research Center (UARC). The ICB is a uniquely 
interdisciplinary research alliance led by the University of California, 
Santa Barbara, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology, the California Institute of Technology and partners from the 
Army and industry. ICB research is driven by more than 50 premier 
faculty working together with graduate students, project scientists, 
specialists, and professional researchers as interdisciplinary teams of 
biologists, chemists, physicists, psychologists, physicians, social 
scientists, and engineers. These teams develop biologically inspired, 
revolutionary technological innovations in systems and synthetic 
biology, materials science and engineering, biotechnology tools and 
cognitive neuroscience.

The department is especially interested in candidates who can contribute 
to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through 
research, teaching and service.
