Undergraduate Paid Internship Opportunity

The Student Academic Center is hiring several students to be Teaching Interns, working in the PASS (Peer Assisted Study Session) Program. Specifically, next fall and spring we will be running PASS in all sections of MATH-D116 and some sections of MATH-M118 (but students from any section of M118 can attend any PASS session, regardless of whether the PASS tutor is attending their section).

PASS, as some of you know, is a peer-led team learning tutoring program in which enrolled students teach each other finite with the assistance of the PASS tutor. By permitting the students to do some of the teaching, the PASS program encourages higher order thinking and mastery of difficult concepts. The PASS tutor attends the finite class with the students, and organizes study sessions each week in the evenings.

This Teaching Internship is paid ($14 per hour) and will take seven hours per week in the fall. Applicants must have taken finite (M118) from IUB and earned a grade of B or better in the course. Applicants must have a 3.00 cumulative gpa or better. Applicants must be sophomore standing or higher. All majors from any school accepted.

Interested students will find the application here: https://sac.indiana.edu/student-employment/index.html . Questions may be directed to akoke@iu.edu.

Research Positions in Attention and Active Vision


The Active Perception Laboratory, a facility shared by PIs Martina Poletti - https://www.urmc.rochester.edu/people/31283571-martina-poletti and Michele Rucci, has openings at multiple levels for studying visual perception, eye movements, and attention in humans. The laboratory is located at the University of Rochester and is part of the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, the Department of Neuroscience, and the Center for Visual Science.
 
Research in the laboratory relies on multiple techniques, including testing of visual functions with highly controlled retinal stimulation, computational modeling of the visual system, and analysis of the visual input signals caused by normal and abnormal motor activity.  The laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art tools for high-resolution recording of head and eye movements, EEG recordings, and for precisely manipulating the stimulus on the retina during motor behavior.  Ongoing projects focus on the interplay of eye movements and attention at the scale of the foveola, the visual consequences of oculomotor transients, and the benefits of eye movements for visual processing. Examples of recent findings from the laboratory can be found in Boi et al Curr Biol, 2017 and Poletti et al Nat Neurosci, 2017.  See Rucci & Victor, Trends Neurosci 2015 and Rucci & Poletti, Annu Rev Vision Sci, 2015 for recent reviews of our work. A full list of our publications can be found on the lab web site.
 
We are looking for highly motivated candidates preferably with quantitative background and demonstrated interest in applying quantitative methods to neuroscience. Experience working in visual perception is preferred, though not a requirement. Experience with signal processing, Matlab, and C/C++ is desirable. 
 
Please send curriculum vitae, statement of research interests and accomplishments, and names of two references to Martina Poletti and Michele Rucci (Martina_Poletti@urmc.rochester.edu, mrucci@ur.rochester.edu).  Doctoral applicants should submit their applications via the Neuroscience Graduate Program and/or the Graduate program in Brain & Cognitive Sciences.​
