A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Steve Luck at the UC-Davis Center for Mind & Brain (http://lucklab.ucdavis.edu). Both U.S. and international applicants are welcome. Multiple years of funding are possible. Our lab places great emphasis on postdoctoral training, and we have an excellent track record of placing our postdocs in faculty positions.
The research will focus on a broad range of topics in visual cognition, using a combination of traditional behavioral methods, ERPs, eye tracking, and possibly fMRI. We are seeking an individual with an excellent background in the theories and methods of high-level vision science and cognitive psychology. Experience with eye tracking and ERPs is not required; this will be an ideal position for someone who is interested in learning these methods or someone who already has experience but wants to become a world-class expert. However, good quantitative and programming skills are essential.
Salary will depend on experience, with a minimum set by the University of California postdoc salary scale (which is higher than NIH scale). The position will remain open until a suitable candidate is identified. We are aiming for a start date between June 1, 2018 and September 30, 2018.
Davis is a vibrant college town in Northern California, located approximately 20 minutes from Sacramento, 75 minutes from San Francisco, 45 minutes from Napa, and 2 hours from Lake Tahoe. The Center for Mind & Brain is an interdisciplinary research center devoted to cognitive science and cognitive neuroscience, located in a beautiful new building with state-of-the-art laboratories (see http://mindbrain.ucdavis.edu/).
To apply, send a cover letter describing your background and interests, a CV, and at least two letters of recommendation to Aaron Simmons (firstname.lastname@example.org).
