PhD positions
School of Psychology, University of Birmingham, UK

Applications are invited for PhD studentships in the field of Sensory Motor
Neuroscience at the University of Birmingham. Successful applicants will
join a thriving research environment to study human perception, action
production and cognitive neuroscience. Research in the group focuses on the
perception of 3D shape and material, perceptual learning, motion perception,
visual locomotion, action production and dynamics. Tailored PhD projects
provide the opportunity to use a combination of sophisticated behavioural
techniques, movement recording, computational modelling and brain imaging

The School of Psychology (psg275.bham.ac.uk/) has a state-of-the-art Imaging
Centre (3T MRI scanner), EEG systems, TMS systems, access to screened
neuropsychological patients, virtual reality systems for haptic research and
movement recording systems.

in UK system or equivalent) in a relevant discipline (e.g. Psychology,
Neuroscience, Physiology, Bioengineering, Computer Science, Mathematics or
Physics). Candidates should be numerate and comfortable learning computer
programming and the use of advanced software for behavioural and brain
imaging data analysis. Above all, candidates should be enthusiastic to learn
new techniques and to contribute to new experiments.

Positions, funded by the University of Birmingham, start on 1st October 2007
and cover fees for UK/EU nationals and provide a maintenance grant (3
