We are seeking a highly motivated and creative postdoctoral research fellow to join our team at Northeastern University in Boston MA. Our lab employs cross-disciplinary approaches to study basic and clinical vision science.
Current models of visual perception have been developed to understand behavior under a limited set of idealized laboratory conditions in healthy observers. However, we interact with a dynamic and cluttered environment and our visual function changes during development and aging. Our research aims to extend models of sensory processing from laboratory settings to real world conditions in observers across the lifespan. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to learn a range of behavioral, oculomotor and retinal imaging methodologies for application in healthy and visually-impaired populations.
