[visionlist] Postdoctoral position in attention and eye movements at Smith-Kettlewell, San Francisco

Our laboratory
seeks a postdoctoral fellow to be funded by an NEI institutional
training grant
to Smith-Kettlewell. We investigate interactions between
oculomotor systems
using naturalistic stimuli, with an emphasis on attentive and
subconscious
elements of oculomotor control. Our approach pairs psychophysics
with eye
movement recording to elucidate sensorimotor signal flow, and
ongoing projects
use fMRI to investigate new perspectives on circuitry underlying
these
processes.

Smith-Kettlewell
is located in San Francisco, a hub of biomedical and biotech
research. Our
location and reputation in vision science affords the
opportunity for postdocs
to collaborate with nearby universities and tech companies. San
Francisco has
many cultural amenities that include diverse dining and
entertainment venues,
and easy access to outdoor activities in our many parks and
waterways.

The
fellowships require a Ph.D. or M.D. and are normally awarded for
two years. Fellows who
demonstrate success obtaining
external funding can be invited to continue as sponsored
investigators at the
institute. Applications from individuals with disabilities or
other
underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged. The NEI
Training Grant
requires that fellows be US citizens or permanent
residents. Note that the
position is offered through the Smith-Kettlewell fellowship
program, which
accepts applications to all Institute labs.

Applications
will be accepted until Feb 24, 2017. Details of the program and
application
procedures can be found at http://ift.tt/2l5Lg2g. To apply,
please contact me at heinen@ski.org .
