Many of our current projects focus on visual perception and eye movements. The laboratory is located within the Department of Psychology, which provides an excellent research and training environment. The postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to contribute to ongoing NIH-funded research and to develop independent studies within the broader aims of the lab. Main responsibilities will include experimental design, data analysis, data interpretation, and manuscript preparation. In addition, this position may involve some data collection and supervision of undergraduate students.

As such, we encourage applications from those individuals who identify as members of marginalized or historically disadvantaged groups. We strive towards creating an inclusive lab climate and a training environment that supports the needs of all individuals.
