Research Opportunity: Chubb-Wright Visual Attention Lab

October 2, 2017

The lab directed by Ted Wright, faculty director of the CHP, and Charlie Chubb is currently interested in recruiting two or three undergraduates to work on projects studying feature-based visual attention. As they become more experienced, students working in this lab have the opportunity to become involved in all aspects of the research; many UROP presentations and honors theses have come out of this participation. A background that includes calculus, statistics, and Matlab programming can be helpful, but is not required.

Those interested should contact Ted Wright (cewright@uci.edu) or Charlie Chubb (cfchubb@uci.edu).
