Study sheds light on a classic visual illusion
Neuroscientists delve into how background brightness influences our perception of an object. Read more.
Postdoctoral Position @Translational Vision Lab, Northeastern University, Boston MA
We are seeking a highly motivated and creative postdoctoral research fellow to join our team at Northeastern University in Boston MA. Our lab employs cross-disciplinary approaches to study basic and clinical vision science.
Current models of visual perception have been developed to understand behavior under a limited set of idealized laboratory conditions in healthy observers. However, we interact with a dynamic and cluttered environment and our visual function changes during development and aging. Our research aims to extend models of sensory processing from laboratory settings to real world conditions in observers across the lifespan. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to learn a range of behavioral, oculomotor and retinal imaging methodologies for application in healthy and visually-impaired populations.
Northeastern University is located in the heart of Boston with a vibrant and collaborative community of faculty, postdoctoral, graduate and undergraduate researchers.
Candidates should have a PhD in a behavioral science with experience in human vision research, eye movement data, strong computational skills and programming experience (MATLAB, Python). Salary will follow the NIH payscale and the start date is flexible, but preferably summer or fall 2020.
Please send a brief statement of interest, CV, and names of at least 2 references to Peter Bex via emailto firstname.lastname@example.org.
