Postdoctoral positions – Fixational eye movements – University of York, UK

The Department of Physics at the University of York is seeking to appoint two post-doctoral fellows (from April 1st 2022) in biological physics theory and modelling under the UKRI ‘Building Collaboration in the Physics of Life’ scheme. The project, A fresh look at visual sampling: (PhysFEM) How are fixational eye-movements optimised?  is in collaboration with the University of Oxford Department of Experimental Psychology and US collaborators.

There are two positions, described at the following links:
Computational: https://jobs.york.ac.uk/wd/plsql/wd_portal.show_job?p_web_site_id=3885&p_web_page_id=473950
Theory and modelling: https://jobs.york.ac.uk/wd/plsql/wd_portal.show_job?p_web_site_id=3885&p_web_page_id=474491&

We imagine that the computational post will be of most relevance to vision scientists. It is centred on developing computational models of fixational eye movements (FEMs) within the opensource ISETBio framework, which encapsulates many of the known properties of the front end of biological visual systems (http://isetbio.org). The project runs in collaboration with Hannah Smithson (University of Oxford, UK) and David Brainard (UPenn, USA).

A further postdoctoral position at the University of Oxford, centred on psychophysics and adaptive-optics retinal imaging, will be advertised shortly, as part of the project.

For an informal discussion regarding this post / project, please contact Prof Tom McLeish (York, Physics) on tom.mcleish at york.ac.uk, or Prof. Hannah Smithson (Oxford, Neuroscience) on hannah.smithson at psy.ox.ac.uk.
