recognize and interact with objects. The project will involve creative
psychophysical & neuroimaging experimentation and the exciting opportunity
to collaborate with other members of the centre for Vision Research (Laurie
Ideally, the right person has some experience with neuroimaging techniques

flexible but expected to be before November 2022.  The position is for one
year, with the expectation of renewal.  Applications are reviewed on
an ongoing basis.  I am also happy to chat with interested applicants on
either the CNS or VSS conferences.
