The School of Psychology at Cardiff University is currently seeking 
high-quality applications for PhD studentships in vision, hearing and other 
disciplines. The Perception group consists of:

Tom Freeman (motion perception / eye, head movements)
Alex Holcombe (visual cognition / temporal integration)
Michael Lewis (face perception)
Simon Rushton (locomotion / interceptive action)
Robert Snowden (motion perception / spatial vision / attention)
John Culling (audiory localisation / segmentation)

The Perception Group has excellent research facilities contained within 
new, purpose-built labs equipped with state-of-the-art technology. The 
group has links to the wider vision community within Cardiff University 
(including research in Optometry, Biomedical Sciences and Computer Science) 
and is geographically close to other concentrations of vision researchers 
in the UK e.g. Bristol, Bangor. Further information about the Perception 
Group's activities can be found at: 

The School of Psychology is one of the largest and most successful in the 
UK (http://www.cf.ac.uk/psych/).  It was recently awarded a 5* (maximum) 
rating in the UK research assessment exercise. It is soon to open its own 
brain-imaging centre (http://www.cf.ac.uk/psych/cubric/), enhancing the 
international-leading research in behavioural neuroscience, cognitive 
ergonomics, forensic, social and developmental psychology.

Cardiff is the youngest capital city in Europe and fastest growing in the 
UK (http://www.bbc.co.uk/capitalofculture/cardiff/facts.shtml). It plays 
host to many national and international sporting events at the Millennium 
Stadium (http://www.millenniumstadium.com/). Culturally, the city is 
thriving, with the Millennium Centre (http://www.wmc.org.uk/) recently 
opened in the newly-developed Cardiff Bay. Cardiff is in very close 
proximity to the beautiful Welsh countryside 
(http://www.breconbeacons.org/), has a two hour rail link to London and a 
(cheap) one hour air link to Paris and Amsterdam
