Starting date: Spring/Summer 2008
2 postdoctoral positions are available to work in collaboration with Rufin VanRullen at the CerCo in Toulouse, France. The project investigates temporal aspects of visual perception, attention and awareness, using a combination of psychophysical, neuro-imaging (EEG, fMRI) and computational tools.

One position is focused on human experimentation: the successful applicant will have prior experience with at least one experimental technique, and a demonstrated interest in vision and/or attention; some programming experience is also desirable. The other position is focused on computer modeling: programming experience and a strong computational background are necessary, as well as an interest in neuroscience and/or psychology. Candidates fulfilling both the above profiles would of course be welcome. More information about the research project can be found at http://www.klab.caltech/edu/~rufin/
French language is not a requirement but a willingness to learn would be beneficial. Net salary is about 1,850 Euros per month, according to French standards. The initial appointment is one year, with a possibility of renewing up to two more years. Additional information about the research environment in Toulouse can be viewed at
Applications should be sent to Rufin VanRullen ( ), and should include a detailed CV including publication list, a brief statement about research interests, and the names of 2 references. Applications should be sent preferably before March 1st, 2008, but later applications will be considered until the positions are filled. Informal inquiries can also be made at any time to the same email address.
