EPSRC PhD Studentship - Visually guided navigation in insects and robots

Centre for Computational Neuroscience and Robotics
School of Life Sciences, University of Sussex

Applications are sought from UK candidates for a 3.5 year DPhil
studentship available from January 2007. (Due to funding restrictions,
EU candidates can only be considered if they have been resident in the
UK for the last three years). Initial inquires should be made to Dr
Paul Graham (P.R.Graham at sussex.ac.uk) in the Centre for Computational
Neuroscience and Robotics.

We are studying insect navigation using both behavioural
experiments and robotic modelling. There is a DPhil studentship
available for a student to study the sensori-motor basis of
visually-guided navigation in ants. Students will be expected to be
involved in both behavioural experiments and computational modelling.
Ideally, applicants should have a biological background as well as
some programming skills and candidates with computational modelling
experience (e.g. image processing, agent based modelling, neural
networks) are especially encouraged.
