Postdoctoral Fellowship, Face Perception
St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada
Area: Face Perception
A postdoctoral fellowship is available in the Infant and Child Development Lab at Brock University to investigate face perception in participants between 3 and 80 years of age, under the supervision of Cathy Mondloch, PhD. Applicants must have completed a Ph.D. in perceptual/developmental psychology by the start date, have strong training in face perception, and a willingness to develop expertise with a range of new technologies. Funding is available for three years through an NSERC Discovery Accelerator Supplement Award given to Cathy Mondloch.
The Infant and Child Development Lab is part of the Lifespan Development Center and the Center for Neuroscience at Brock University. Members of the lab investigate the development of expert face processing and the role of experience in driving that development. A recent grant from the Canada Foundation for Innovation provided funding for several pieces of cutting-edge technology (a 3D camera, a 4D camera, two eye-trackers, Noldus Observer). The postdoctoral fellow will assume responsibility for integrating this technology into our research program, design and conduct new studies and join on-going projects. The successful applicant will be part of a collaborative team of postdocs, graduate students, undergraduate students and research assistants, with opportunities for interactions with a broad array of research teams in psychology, the Centre for Neuroscience, and the Lifespan Centre.
Start Date: Winter/Spring 2012
