*Postdoctoral opportunity in Active Vision and EEG at UR Center for Visual
Science*

A postdoctoral position is available in the Active Perception Laboratory (
http://aplab.bcs.rochester.edu) at the University of Rochester to study the
perceptual consequences of eye movements and their interplay with
attention. We are specifically looking for candidates with experience in
electroencephalography interested in studying active vision. The work will
be conducted under the supervision of Dr. Martina Poletti and Dr. Michele
Rucci.

Research in the laboratory focuses on the interaction between vision and
behavior.  Our work relies on the integration of theoretical and
experimental approaches to investigate how visual functions unfold in the
presence of normal and abnormal motor activity, how vision guides behavior,
and how changes in visual input signals and modulations associated with
behavior contribute to perception. The laboratory is equipped with a unique
array of tools, many developed in-house, to investigate the synergy between
visual, motor, and cognitive processes. Approaches include human
psychophysics with precisely controlled retinal stimulation, computational
modeling, high-resolution measurements of head and eye movements, and
retinal imaging (https://aplab.bcs.rochester.edu/facilities.html#
<https://aplab.bcs.rochester.edu/facilities.html>).

The ideal candidate would have a strong background in visual perception as
evidenced by the publication record, significant experience with EEG
experiments, data analysis, and computer programming (C++ preferred).
Candidates with experience in some or all of these areas will be
considered.  Motivation and independence are important, as well as the
ability to work well in a team.

The University of Rochester offers a highly collaborative and stimulating
research environment with excellent opportunities for interactions and
training in vision science and neuroscience.  The laboratory is located
within the Center for Visual Science (http://www.cvs.rochester.edu/) and
the department of Brain & Cognitive Sciences (
http://www.sas.rochester.edu/bcs/). Ongoing collaborations at the
University of Rochester include the Flaum Eye Institute (
https://www.urmc.rochester.edu/eye-institute.aspx) the Institute of Optics (
http://www.hajim.rochester.edu/optics/) and the department of Neuroscience (
https://www.urmc.rochester.edu/neuroscience.aspx)

To apply, please send curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests
and accomplishments, and the names of two references to Martina Poletti (
martina_poletti at urmc.rochester.edu) and Michele Rucci (
mrucci at ur.rochester.edu).
