Attention: Seeking Postdoctoral Fellows and Taking Applications

view from child's head camera Background: Linda Smith, Chen Yu, and David Crandall are inviting applications for post-doctoral research fellowships at Indiana University. We are seeking ambitious young researchers to join us in the study of early visual environments and egocentric vision, especially as they relate to the development of visual object recognition and early object name learning. We have a collected over 500 hours of home head camera (and audio) data in infants from 3 weeks to 24 months to understand the statistical structure of natural visual environments and how they change with development. There are important open questions in low level and high level visual statistics, object name correspondences, and experiences of specific object categories such as faces, hands, people, and objects. Please see for recent work on this project.
