Recruiting a Postdoctoral Fellow at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

A postdoctoral position is immediately available in the School of Optometry at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. The position is linked to a large-scale research project concerned with the use of non-invasive brain stimulation and perceptual learning to improve visually impaired patients’ functional vision and quality of life. A summary of the project can be found by following this link.  http://www.polyu.hk/so/index.php?lang=en&pageid=1012

Techniques involved in the project include visual psychophysics, perceptual learning, non-invasive brain stimulation, EEG and fMRI. The work is primarily based in the lab of Allen Cheong, with close collaboration with Ben Thompson at University of Waterloo (primarily on non-invasive brain stimulation), Sing-Hang Cheung and Dorita Chang at University of Hong Kong (primarily on brain-imaging research).

Experience in any of these areas (visual psychophysics, EEG, fMRI) is required, but skill in any two would be even more helpful. Experience with MATLAB/Python programming is highly preferable.

The School of Optometry at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University is a world-renowned vision research group, addressing various important research areas in vision. https://www.polyu.edu.hk/so/index.php?lang=en&pageid=322&dispmode=1

The appointment is initially for one year, renewable year by year for as many as three years. Salary is competitive and will be commensurate with experience.

Interested applications should send a CV, sample publications, and names/contact information of 2 referees to Allen Cheong allen.my.cheong at polyu.edu.hk<mailto:allen.my.cheong at polyu.edu.hk>.
