2 POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS: Dynamics of visual perception and attention

Starting date: Spring/Summer 2008

2 postdoctoral positions are available to work in collaboration with 
Rufin VanRullen at the CerCo in Toulouse, France. The project 
investigates temporal aspects of visual perception, attention and 
awareness, using a combination of psychophysical, neuro-imaging (EEG, 
fMRI) and computational tools. One position is focused on human 
experimentation: the successful applicant will have prior experience 
with at least one experimental technique, and a demonstrated interest in 
vision and/or attention; some programming experience is also desirable. 
The other position is focused on computer modeling: programming 
experience and a strong computational background are necessary, as well 
as an interest in neuroscience and/or psychology. Candidates fulfilling 
both the above profiles would of course be welcome. More information 
about the research project can be found at 
http://www.klab.caltech/edu/~rufin/ 
<http://www.klab.caltech/edu/%7Erufin/>.

French language is not a requirement but a willingness to learn would be 
beneficial. Net salary is about 1,850 Euros per month, according to 
French standards. The initial appointment is one year, with a 
possibility of renewing up to two more years. Additional information 
about the research environment in Toulouse can be viewed at

Applications should be sent to Rufin VanRullen 
(rufin.vanrullen at cerco.ups-tlse.fr 
<mailto:rufin.vanrullen at cerco.ups-tlse.fr>), and should include a 
detailed CV including publication list, a brief statement about research 
interests, and the names of 2 references. Applications should be sent 
preferably before March 1st, 2008, but later applications will be 
considered until the positions are filled. Informal inquiries can also 
be made at any time to the same email address.
