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 Computational Intelligence. Topics
currently being investigated in the CCNCS include: language, attention,
emotions, decision making, object recognition, face processing,
categorisation, memory, neural modelling, machine learning,
electrophysiology and modelling of EEG.
Professor Howard Bowman is looking to appoint PhDs in his areas of research
(http://www.cs.kent.ac.uk/~hb5). 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. He is also undertaking more
applied research on brain-computer interaction 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.
