Wellcome Trust Funded PhD Studentship

An Investigation of Visual and Auditory Motion Processing in the Human 
Cerebral Cortex

Applications are invited for a Wellcome Trust funded PhD Studentship to 
work on a project investigating the degree of similarity between the 
mechanisms that detect and analyse visual and auditory motion.  In 
addition, the project will seek to establish the nature and extent of 
neural interactions between visual and auditory motion systems.  This 
project will involve a range of investigative techniques including 
visual and auditory psychophysical (behavioural) testing, transcranial 
magnetic stimulation (TMS) and some computational modeling.  These 
experiments will be conducted in collaboration with the laboratory of 
Professor David Badcock (University of Western Australia).  This post 
represents a unique training opportunity for an individual with a 
strong interest in sensory science.

The School of Psychology at the University of Nottingham has a thriving 
Visual Neuroscience group, with four faculty members, researchers and 
PhD students.  The group has a diverse range of interests in human 
vision, is supported by excellent laboratory and research facilities, 
and is firmly committed to the development of young researchers.

Students should hold, or be about to obtain, a minimum of an Honours 
Degree (upper 2nd or 1st class) in a relevant field such as psychology, 
optometry, neuroscience, physiology, computer science or a related 
discipline.  A highly motivated individual is required with an interest 
in visual and auditory perception and good computing and technical 

Funding for this studentship will be offered for a standard period of 
three years, at a starting level of £24,141 per annum (to include fees 
and maintenance).  The successful student will be expected to start on 
1 September 2005 at the latest.
