The Department of Psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison anticipates budgetary approval to appoint outstanding scholars in the following two areas, at the Assistant Professor rank, beginning August 2013. The Department highly values integrative research and is especially interested in candidates whose work spans traditional subdisciplines within psychology or between psychology and other disciplines. For both positions, the primary criteria are excellence in research and teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, rather than specific research focus.
Psychopathology/Clinical. Please send application materials as listed below to
Biological Bases of Behavior, broadly construed across human and nonhuman species and encompassing varied approaches, including genetics and neuroscience. Please send application materials as listed below to
To ensure full consideration, applications must be received by October 1, 2012. Faculty have the opportunity to capitalize on an extraordinarily productive network that links Psychology to many specialized research units on campus. See our Website at http://psych.wisc.edu to learn about related units. Ph.D. required prior to start of appointment. Applicants should submit a single PDF document with the following information, and in this order: cover letter, CV, statement of research, and statement of teaching interest. Three reprints or preprints should be sent as separate PDF files. Three letters of reference should also be submitted. Send materials to the appropriate email address, as listed above. Unless confidentiality is requested in writing, information regarding applicants must be released upon request. Finalists cannot be guaranteed confidentiality.

Post Doctoral Opportunities
Postdoc in 3D motion perception at the University of Wisconsin - Madison.
A postdoctoral position is available in my laboratory at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. We aim to understand the neural mechanisms underlying visual motion perception using behavioral, neuroimaging and computational methods.
Work in the lab focusses on how 3D motion perception arises from the two retinal images. We typically use stereoscopic (3D) displays (using mirror-stereoscopes and shutter glasses). An interest in these technologies and a desire to tinker with them is highly desired.
More information about the work in our lab can be found at http://psych.wisc.edu/vision
The ideal candidate will have strong skills in some combination of visual psychophysics, neuroimaging (fMRI), and computational modeling. Programming experience in Matlab (Psychtoolbox) and OpenGL is preferred. Start date is flexible. The position is for one year, with the possibility of extension for another.
The University of Wisconsin - Madison is home to one of the top 10 psychology graduate programs in the country as ranked by U.S News and World Report, and while winters can be cold, having a beer at the Wisconsin Union terrace during the summer more than makes up for it. Please email a CV, three references, and a short statement of your research interests to Bas Rokers (rokers at wisc dot edu).
