Positions

I am recruiting department/group members at various levels and for various roles: student, postdoc, research assistant, technician, scientist, and secretary. Please get in touch if you think your interest and skills are suitable.

When you get in contact, you should describe your background, include a CV and other helpful information about yourself. To demonstrate your interests and suitability in our works, you need to use concrete statements rather than unspecific (and unhelpful) statements such as "I am very interested in your research". Hence, it is best that you first read some of our papers/book to see whether our research topics and styles are of interests to your skill sets and your training needs, and then describe in concrete terms to demonstrate your knowledge of, and your suitability for, what we do, and why you are interested. It is also helpful to describe the kinds of projects that you would like to do and how/why they relate to our research program.

Current positions available

Postdoc position in Human Visual Psychophysics

Requirements: You must be experienced and skilled in techniques of human visual psychophysics, such as matlab programming for experiments, experimental data taking, data analysis, and paper writing. You should be familiar with or at least be a fast learner of techniques in eye tracking, EEG, TMS, and other related techniques such as in carrying out fMRI experiments. Depending on your interests and skills, you will be involved in one or more of the following projects: visual attention (e.g., in visual search or object recognition experiments), visual discrimination (e.g., in object/feature recognition experiments), visual illusion, color vision (e.g., color constancy), stereo/dichoptic vision, visual adaptation, and peripheral vision, and we could also discuss other possibilities. Different researchers in this department use different research methods including psychophysics, neurophysiology, imaging, and computation modeling, you should be able to benefit from interacting and collaborating with colleagues using different methods. Salary will depend on your experience.

Ph.D. student position / research assistant in Human Visual Psychophysics

Similar as the position above, but for candidates with less experience and educational level.

Postdoc position in Rodent Sensory and Sensorimotor system

Requirement: should have a Ph.D. degree in neuroscience or a related field, and be skilled and experienced in at least a few and desirably many of rodent neuroscience research techniques such as: electrophysiology, behavioural training, electrical, optogenetic or pharmacological manipulations, virus injections, imaging (e.g., GCAMP fluorescence, intrinsic), eye/behavioural tracking, histology, and animal surgery. The postdoc will be actively engaged in setting up experiments, carrying out data acquisition and data analysis, writing up research reports and papers, supervising students and working with other research team members, etc. The postdoc will be involved in one or many of the active research topics such as visual attention/orienting, visual recognition, olfactory processing, odor recognition, sensory adaptation, sensory segmentation, and sensory integration, and sensorimotor transformation or other topics to be discussed. Different researchers in this department use different research methods including psychophysics, neurophysiology, imaging, and computation modeling, you should be able to benefit from interacting and collaborating with colleagues using different methods. Salary will depend on your experience.
