[visionlist] Post-doctoral Position in Object Recognition – University of Coimbra

The Proaction (Perception and Recognition of Objects and Actions) Laboratory (http://ift.tt/1qDGyEA) at the University of Coimbra (www.uc.pt), Portugal is searching for a Post-doctoral researcher for a project on visual object recognition. The project involves the use of fMRI (potentially also the use of psychophysics, and tDCS/TMS). As such, a good understanding of fMRI data analysis is required. Experience in using matlab (and potentially psychtoolbox) is also a requirement. Experience with analysis techniques used in vision and object recognition are a plus (e.g., Representational Similarity Analysis, MVPA, population Receptive Fields/phase lag analysis).

The position is, initially, for six months, and may be extended further for 3 years pending funding. The deadline for the application is March 15. The interested candidates should email the Jorge Almeida. The Post-doc research will work with Jorge Almeida (and colleagues from the laboratory).

Stipends are competitive for the cost of life in Portugal (and particularly in Coimbra). Post-doc salary is about twice the average income in Portugal (1495 euros per month tax free, plus social security; according to Numbeo, 1495 euros in Coimbra is the equivalent to 3000 euros in Paris).

Please send curriculum vitae, list of publications, the names of three referees, and a short description of your experience in the field and how you fulfill the requirements by e-mail to: jorgealmeida@fpce.uc.pt.

We are very pleased to announce this call for the 18th
European Conference on Eye Movements (ECEM). As in previous
years, we look forward to an exciting conference. As the
largest conference on eye movements worldwide, ECEM aims to
promote cooperation and communication between researchers and
research fields, as well as to exchange information on the
state-of-the-art of research, equipment, and software in the
field of eye movements. Therefore, ECEM brings together basic
as well as more applied researchers from different fields
including neurophysiologists, psychologists,
neuropsychologists, clinicians, linguists, computational and
applied scientists, engineers and manufacturers that are
interested in eye movements.ECEM 2015 will be held from August 16 to 21, 2015
in Vienna, Austria. The conference chairs are Ulrich Ansorge,
Thomas Ditye, Arnd Florack, and Helmut Leder from the Faculty
of Psychology of the University of Vienna.This

[visionlist] PhD studentship in active vision at the University of Lincoln (UK)

We have a fully funded PhD studentship available to examine the influence of social cues on human gaze behaviour. The project, supervised by Dr Frouke Hermens and Professor Tim Hodgson, will make use of mobile eye tracking technology to examine how cues provided by other people (e.g., shifts of eye gaze, pointing gestures) influence observers’ own eye movements.


The fully-funded PhD studentship is available for start in September/ October 2015.  It will cover UK/EU fees and provide an annual stipend set at RCUK levels (£14,057 for 2015/16) plus an annual research budget of £2,000. The duration of the studentship is 3.5 years full-time.


For more information about the project and how to apply, please seehttp://www.lincoln.ac.uk/t4media/pdf/studentships2015/COL2015CSS7.pdf
