Colour Perception and Colour Constancy in Authentic and Simulated
Environments

PhD STUDENTSHIP IN VISUAL PERCEPTION AND NEUROSCIENCE

A PhD studentship is available to study how basic elements of scenes
affect colour perception in both authentic and simulated environments. 
The successful applicant will investigate how the visual system adjusts
colour perception based on specific aspects of scenes so that the
perceived colours of objects remain relatively stable despite changes
in illumination and in the surrounding objects.  The aim of the project
is to describe the human system well enough to begin creating a model
which produces similar performance.

The project is funded by the EPSRC and provides a stipend of £10,500 in
the first year, £12,000 in the second year, and £12,300 in the final
year, as well as payment of all tuition fees.  Applicants should have,
or expect to obtain a First Class or Upper Second Class Honours degree
in Engineering, Mathematics, Neuroscience, Computer Science, or a
subject related to vision.  Aptitude and patience for solving somewhat
exploratory and ambiguous problems will be an advantage.

For further information, contact: Dr Jamie Kraft (Tel: +44 (0)161 306
5763) or email j.kraft at umist.ac.uk).  Please send applications,
including a C.V. and the names and contact details of two referees to
Dr Jamie Kraft, Department of Optometry and Neuroscience, UMIST, P O
Box 88, Manchester M60 1QD, England.  The closing date is 15th July
2004.  Please quote reference:  ONS/S/38.

The Victoria University of Manchester and UMIST will form a single
university from 1 October 2004.  Both universities have guaranteed all
staff in their employment who transfer to the new institution a post at
a salary level and with conditions of service equivalent to those they
currently enjoy.  This guarantee applies equally to any newly-recruited
staff who will be in post when the unified university is created.
