PhD positions: Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience and Cognitive Systems at

The Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience and Cognitive Systems (CCNCS,
http://www.cs.kent.ac.uk/projects/cncs/index.html) is seeking PhD applicants
across the topics encompassed by the Centre. The CCNCS is a
cross-disciplinary grouping, which brings together academics in Psychology,
Neuroimaging, Neuropsychology and the Computational Sciences. Topics
currently being investigated in the CCNCS include: language, attention,
emotions, object recognition, face processing, categorisation, memory,
neural modelling, machine learning, electrophysiology and modelling of EEG.

Professor Howard Bowman and Dr Rosie Cowell (the Computing arm of the CCNCS)
are particularly keen to appoint PhDs in their areas of research
(http://www.cs.kent.ac.uk/~hb5 and http://www.cs.kent.ac.uk/~rac32).
Professor Bowman has ongoing research projects in the areas of temporal and
spatial attention, emotions and attention, decision making and language,
with both electrophysiological and computational modelling methods being
applied. Dr Rosie Cowell has ongoing research focused on categorisation,
face processing, neural modelling and memory. Applicants crossing the
disciplines of the CCNCS are particularly welcome. Typically, PhD students
in the CCNCS undertake behavioural experimentation, electrophysiological
experimentation and neural modelling. The PhD programme is particularly set
up to develop researchers with skills in all three of these methods.
Funding will be allocated on a competitive basis. Research council
eligibility criteria limit a proportion of the funding available to UK

Inquiries concerning these PhD positions should be made to Professor Howard
Bowman (H.Bowman at kent.ac.uk), University of Kent at Canterbury, UK.
