PhD studentship (College Studentship)

The influence of sensory cues on the perception of time



Applications are invited for a PhD studentship to work with Dr. Szonya
Durant investigating the influence of sensory cues on the perception of
time. The successful applicant will conduct an independent piece of
computational and/or empirical research under Dr. Durant's supervision.
The topic of the PhD can be shaped by the successful applicant to a
considerable extent, but it must fall in the broad area of visual
neuroscience and spatio-temporal neural coding. 


The Royal Holloway Crossland Studentship provides a stipend and also
covers the tuition fees for UK and EU students. The successful applicant
will hold, or should expect to complete, a good undergraduate degree in
psychology, mathematics, physics, biology, computer science or another
relevant area. A qualification at MSc level would be an additional
advantage but is not a necessary requirement. The successful applicant
will have strong analytical skills and some experience in either
experimental design and implementation or computational modelling and
he/she will be skilled in written communication. A keen interest in
sensory neuroscience is also essential. 


Applicants are also strongly encouraged to initiate contact with Dr.
Szonya Durant (see:
http://www.pc.rhul.ac.uk/web/about_us/personal_profile.asp?id=50) prior
to their application by providing a statement of their research
interests and a summary of qualifications. Further details on how to
apply can also be requested from Dr. Durant at szonya.durant at rhul.ac.uk,
or call +44 1784 276 522. 


The closing date for the receipt of applications is midday on the 14
June 2010. Interviews are due to take place in the week of 21st of June
2010 and the preferred start date is 20 September, 2010.
