PhD Opportunity in Sensory/Perceptual Neuroscience 


Applications are invited for a PhD studentship starting in the academic
year 2011-12 to work with Dr. Szonya Durant and Prof. Zanker
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 and Prof.
Zanker's joint supervision in the Department of Psychology at Royal
Holloway University of London.  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 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 prior to their application by providing a
statement of their research interests and a summary of qualifications. A
PhD research proposal will need to be prepared as part of the
application. Further details on how to apply can also be requested from
Dr. Durant at szonya.durant at rhul.ac.uk  or call 01784 276 522.  


The Department of Psychology at Royal Holloway University of London was
ranked 7th in the UK in the 2008 Research the Assessment Exercise (RAE)
and was ranked 4 overall in the Guardian league tables.  The department
has over thirty members of academic staff and some 25 post-graduate
research (PhD) students.  We offer a vibrant research community and
excellent facilities including a research designated functional imaging


Closing date: 22 March 2011
