PhD Studentships in Perception, University of St. Andrews

The School of Psychology at St Andrews has a strong research culture,
excellent research facilities and a thriving postgraduate community. We
offer supervision from leading researchers across a wide range of fields.

St. Andrews has a strong Perception group, studying primarily visual perception
across a range of areas and techniques, from computational modelling of visual
neurons, through human behavioural and modelling work on depth, space and
layout, to the perception of health and other fitness measures in faces. See
the following web pages:

Our work is interdisciplinary, using mathematical and computational modelling to
study visual perception. It sits at the interface betwene psychology, computer
science and biology. We welcome applications from graduates in psychology who
have good mathematical skills, and from graduates of disciplines with strong
mathematical content, including physics, engineering, computer science and

We have a small number of studentships to offer every year that are
