Dear Colleagues,

Please convey the following announcement to bright undergraduates 
looking for opportunities to earn a Ph.D. in perception, action, and 

Best regards,
Ila Fiete


The program in Perception at The University of Texas at Austin is 
encouraging applications for interdisciplinary graduate study in vision 
sciences, with emphasis on naturalistic tasks and stimuli. Housed in the 
Department of Psychology, the Institute for Neuroscience, and the Center 
for Perceptual Systems, our program is a vibrant, growing, and 
highly-collaborative collection of research laboratories boasting 
world-class facilities for conducting research in visual perception, 
visually guided actions, and the underlying neural mechanisms. These 
facilities include fMRI, eye tracking, head and body tracking, face and 
facial expression tracking, virtual reality, the collection of 3D 
time-varying natural scene statistics, computationally-intensive 
modeling and computer graphics, psychophysics, 2 photon microscopy, 
optical imaging, and electrophysiology. Funding opportunities are 
available through an NIH training grant, Research Assistantships, 
Fellowships, and Teaching Assistantships. Faculty actively engaging in 
interdisciplinary research in the program include:

Dana Ballard: computational neuroscience, machine learning, visuo-motor 

Larry Cormack: vision and natural scene statistics; psychophysics, 
motion and depth

Ila Fiete: computational neuroscience of network dynamics and coding

Bill Geisler: vision and natural scene statistics; computational modeling

Mary Hayhoe: eye movements, attention, virtual environments.

Alex Huk: sensory-motor decisions, neural mechanisms of motion and depth 

Ian Nauhaus: circuitry underlying functional maps and coding in visual 

Jonathan Pillow:  computational neuroscience, neural coding, Bayesian 

Nicholas Priebe: neural coding in early visual cortex, intracellular 

Eyal Seidemann: neural basis of visual perception, neural population coding

Max Snodderly: early visual system, eye movements, and natural environments
