Application are invited for a PhD studentship in Modelling multistable
perception by stochastic resonance processes.

Closing dates for applications : 15th June 2016.

In summary, the main objectives of this PhD are to unify available models
of stochastic resonance and to experimentally evaluate the contribution of
gaze noise to decision making processes in multistable perception. To this
aim, the successful candidate will contribute to theoretical,
methodological, and experimental studies. Three research axes are
identified: (1) developing stochastic resonance models and comparing these
models to the recent Bayesian models described in [Moreno-Bote, Knill &
Pouget, 2011]; (2) development of a tool set for the analysis of the
neuronal correlates based on EEG feature extraction and machine learning
for perceptual change prediction; (3) the design of experimental paradigms
for multistable perception, with gaze and/or EEG recordings.

This subject is on a confluence of multiple research axes, all essential
for a successful PhD :

• Stochastic resonance modelling: GIPSA-lab/CICS

• Retinal modelling: GIPSA-lab/ViBS, LPNC

• Study of micro-saccades: LPNC, GIPSA-lab/CICS

• Gaze experiment design: GIPSA-lab/ViBS, LPNC

• Joint Gaze and EEG experiment design : GIPSA-lab/ViBS

• EEG signal analysis : GIPSA-lab/ViBS.

Apllicants should have a strong background in stochastic signal processing
and have strong interest in pstychophysics, oculometry and EERG recording.

French is not mandatory.

The Gipsa-lab is situated in the University Grenoble-Alpes (UGA :
The UGA is located in Grenoble, an international city and a wonderful
place to live, work, and study. Nestled in the Alps, Grenoble enjoys an
incomparable natural setting, with opportunities for sports lovers and
nature enthusiasts alike.
