Research assistant position in visual attention

This position is in the lab of Jeremy Wolfe. We conduct psychophysical/behavioral research primarily in the area of visual attention. How do you find what you are looking for in a world full of things you are not looking for? How do radiologists find a tumor in an x-ray? How do their eyes move when they are looking? How could we help make them more accurate? Healthy young adults are the experimental observers for most experiments. Experts like radiologists are observers in other experiments. The position involves all stages of the research process, from planning experiments and preparing documents for the ethics review board to helping write up results for publication, but the main focus is data collection and analysis.

This position could start anytime between about May 1 and Sept 1, depending on the candidate’s schedule (Finish college first!).
