Applications are invited for a PhD studentship starting Sept 2011 to work with Dr Benjamin Vincent (University of Dundee, UK).

The PhD will study visual attention and decision making. Signal detection theory and Bayesian decision theory will be applied to a range of issues in visual attention. Both covert and overt attention will be studied, taking advantage of the excellent eye tracking equipment and expertise available, see http://www.core-dundee.org/ 

Applicants should have a Bachelor's or Master's degree, and have a background in psychology, neuroscience or related fields. Programming experience in Matlab would be beneficial but ability and desire to learn is essential. The candidate should be able to demonstrate independence and curiosity. Complete grasp of signal detection theory or Bayesian decision theory is not required, but the candidate must be highly numerate.

Applicants are encouraged to initiate contact with Dr Benjamin Vincent b.t.vincent at dundee.ac.uk prior to their application by providing a short statement of their research interests and a summary of qualifications. A PhD research proposal will need to be prepared as part of the formal application.
