A postdoctoral position is available in the Gettysburg College Perception Laboratory (http://public.gettysburg.edu/~rrussell/laboratory.html).

We perform basic research investigating human face perception, with a focus on how age, sex, health, and beauty are perceived from the face.  We are also interested in understanding the use of cosmetics and other systems for artificially manipulating facial appearance.  Methods include traditional experimental psychology approaches as well as anthropometry and image analysis.

The postdoctoral associate will work closely with the laboratory director, Richard Russell, as part of a collaboration with researchers at the Centre de Recherches et d'Investigations Épidermiques et Sensorielles (CE.R.I.E.S.) in Paris, France.

Gettysburg College is a highly selective small liberal arts college, and its Department of Psychology has a strong empirical research tradition.  Gettysburg is a picturesque and historic small town with a low cost of living that is 75 minutes from Baltimore and 90 minutes from Washington, DC.

The successful candidate will have completed or be close to completing a PhD in Psychology, Neuroscience, Cognitive Science, Computer Science, Biology, or a related discipline.  The start date is negotiable.  The position will initially run until November 1, 2016, with the possibility of renewal for additional one year periods, given satisfactory performance.  The annual salary follows the NIH NRSA postdoctoral salary scale, and comes with a competitive package of benefits.

Applicants should send a cover letter with a brief research statement, a CV, and names and email addresses of three references to Richard Russell rrussell at gettysburg.edu<mailto:rrussell at gettysburg.edu>.  You are also encouraged to email Richard directly with any questions about the position.
