A Postdoctoral Research Fellow position is available at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences (MPI-CBS) in Leipzig, Germany. The objective of the postdoctoral research project is to use high-resolution functional and structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to understand the role of subcortical sensory structures in human perception and communication.

The MPI-CBS is an internationally leading centre for cognitive and imaging neuroscience equipped with a 7.0 T MRI scanner, several 3.0 T MRI scanners, a 306 channels MEG system, TMS, tDCS, several EEG suites, and eye-tracking labs. All facilities and data analyses are supported by experienced IT specialists and physicists. Besides an excellent infrastructure, our institute offers an international and friendly environment with researchers from diverse backgrounds. The postdoc will be member of the group “Neural Mechanisms of Human Communication” led by Katharina von Kriegstein.

The candidates must have a PhD (or equivalent) in neuroscience, experimental psychology, biology, or a related field, and should be able to demonstrate a consistently outstanding academic record, including publications. The ideal candidate will have expertise in the acquisition and analysis of neuroscientific data. Prior experience with high-resolution functional or structural MRI is preferred.

The starting date for this position is flexible. Initially for two years, the position offers the possibility of extension for up to four years. Salary depends on experience and is based on regulations of the Max Planck Society.

To apply, please include all documents in one PDF-file in the following order: CV, contact information for two references, a brief statement describing your personal qualifications and future research interests, copies of up to three of your publications. Applications with the subject heading “HC15PD” should be sent via email to: personal@cbs.mpg.de. The deadline for application submission is 17 April 2015.

CFP: BICT 2015 Special Track on Biologically Inspired Computer Vision Models and Techniques (BioVis)

9th International Conference on Bio-inspired Information and Communications Technologies (formerly BIONETICS)

December 3-5, 2015, New York City, New York, United States

Sponsored by European Alliance for Innovation (EAI) and Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

In-corporation with ACM (Pending)

Recent advancements in the understanding of the computational processes underlying human/mammalian vision have provided novel opportunities for the creation of biologically inspired computer vision models and techniques. Biologically inspired vision systems could be used in visual search engines, surveillance systems, objects detection and recognition in cluttered scenes, or in smart sensors that can warn drivers of pedestrians and other obstacles.

The objective of this special track is to provide a forum for researchers and industry practitioners to exchange ideas and discuss the latest developments and challenges in this fast moving area.

This special track seeks high-quality original and unpublished papers in the following topics, including but not limited to:

Biologically inspired sensors’ design

Unconventional and biologically inspired signal/image processing

From biological vision to artificial vision

Bio-based models and paradigms in computer vision

Biologically inspired Computer Vision Methods for Bioinformatics

Biologically inspired imaging and sensing

Eye-based biometric recognition systems

Bio-inspired Visual-based interactive robotics

Visual-based Human Computer Interaction

[visionlist] postdoctoral position at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore

*** Please circulate widely ***
===========================Postdoctoral position in visual neuroscience at the Indian
Institute of Science, Bangalore
A postdoctoral position in visual neuroscience is available
immediately at the Centre for Neuroscience, Indian Institute of
Science (IISc), Bangalore, India in the laboratory of Dr SP Arun.
Research in the laboratory is focused on understanding how objects
are represented in the brain using fMRI, TMS and behavioral studies
in humans and using recordings of electrical activity in the visual
cortex. These data are used to test and build computational models
of object recognition.
More information: http://ift.tt/1brV693
The postdoctoral fellowship is funded through a collaborative grant
between Dr SP Arun (IISc) and Prof. Carl Olson (Carnegie Mellon
University) to investigate the impact of visual experience on
object-selective regions in the brain. The postdoctoral fellow will
be based at IISc but is expected to spend a substantial period of
time at CMU. The fellowship provides for a highly attractive annual
salary ($40,000), meant to cover all expenses including travel.
The candidate should have a PhD degree in neuroscience, psychology
or engineering, a record of success in research as evidenced by
first author peer-reviewed publications and strong letters of
reference. Experience in one or more of the following areas is
desirable: visual psychophysics, fMRI, computational modelling,
neurophysiology. Programming experience with Matlab or C is
