Opening for Postdoctoral Research Scientist in the Department of Psychology,
Columbia University, New York City, NY, USA. We are looking for a candidate
with (or expecting) a doctorate in the computational or vision sciences to
join a new research group, to focus on the study of neural computation and
the higher cognitive aspects of perception, such as attention, confidence
judgements and conscious awareness. The projects would involve developing
original computational models and testing them with neuroimaging, and
therefore the ideal candidate should be familiar with Bayesian learning
models, decision theory, and/or some mathematical aspects of signal
detection theory. Although the candidate must also be interested in
conducting experiments, a background in empirical research is only desirable
but not required. We have unrestricted access to excellent local facilities
including fMRI (with concurrent EEG), and TMS. Training and support staff
would be provided if necessary. The candidate would also be given the
freedom to pursuit original research and to interact with the greater
community of Bayesian theoreticians and vision scientists in Manhattan. We
have funding for 3 years' time. The position is available from September
2007, and selection will take place as soon as applications are received,
and will continue until the suitable candidate is found. Please direct
inquires to Hakwan Lau ( hakwan at gmail.com, http://hakwan.googlepages.com/).
Interested applicants please send a CV and contact information for 2-3
referees. Columbia University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action
employer. Minorities and women are encouraged to apply.

Hakwan Lau, D.Phil
