EPSRC Funded PhD Studentship in Binocular Vision 2006

Applications are invited for a 3-year research studentship to study 
human binocular vision,
leading to the degree of PhD.

Because we have forward facing eyes separated by just a few 
centimetres, each eye delivers
slightly different information to the brain about the location of 
objects.  The tiny differences
between right and left eye views provide the brain with information 
about three dimensional (3-D)
structure and depth. This studentship forms part of an EPSRC funded 
research project, held by
Prof. Julie Harris, to study how the binocular visual information 
from the two eyes is used to
perceive three dimensional motion.

The studentship will be based at the University of St. Andrews, in a 
lively and vibrant research
environment.  We have a small but active Vision Lab comprising 
postgraduate students,
postdoctoral researchers and permanent academic staff.  We work 
within the wider context of the
Perception and Performance Group in one of the top School's of 
Psychology in the UK.

Start date is the end of September 2006.

Candidates should hold (or expect to hold) a good Honours degree (at 
least 2.1) in a relevant
discipline (including Bioengineering, Computer Science, Mathematics, 
Optometry, Physics,
Physiology, Psychology). They should have an interest in learning 
visual psychophysical and
modelling techniques. Mathematical skills, including computer 
programming experience, are
desirable.  The student will be expected to learn programming and 
update their mathematical
skills if necessary.
