POST-DOC IN PERCEPTION & ACTION
BROWN UNIVERSITY

A post-doctoral Research Associate position in Perception and Action
is available in the Dept. of Cognitive and Linguistic Sciences
beginning July 1, 2004. The NIH-funded project investigates the visual
control of human locomotor behavior in dynamic environments, including
steering, obstacle avoidance, interception, escape, interactions with
other agents, and their integration, using a state-of-the-art
ambulatory virtual reality laboratory (the VENLab). Control strategies
are modeled using a dynamical systems approach, with potential
applications to robotics. Candidates should have a background in human
perceptual and/or motor research and expertise in some combination of
computer graphics programming, kinematic analysis and signal
processing, and/or dynamical systems modeling. Ph.D. must be completed
before starting, and the position is renewable for up to 4 years. Send
vita, brief statement of research interests, and 3 letters of reference
to Dr. William H. Warren, Perception-Action Search, Dept. of Cognitive
& Linguistic Sciences, Brown University, Providence, RI 02912 USA, or
to Bill_Warren@brown.edu. Applications will be reviewed until the
position is filled. Brown University is an Equal
Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
