PhD Scholarship: Relating Physical Measurements to Three-dimensional Face Perception.

Applications are invited for a 3-year PhD scholarship in the field of three-dimensional (3D) face perception.  The scholarship is part of an ARC Discovery project DP0986898 "Face-space: linking three-dimensional shape and human perception across changing viewing conditions" awarded to Harold Hill (University of Wollongong), Peter Claes (University of Melbourne) and Alan Johnston (University College London) and commencing in 2009.  The scholarship will be held at the University of Wollongong with Harold Hill as the primary supervisor.

The successful applicant will be closely involved with the core project.  The aim of this is to relate physical measures of 3D faces to human perception of similarity.  Applicants should have experience of experimental psychology and statistics.  Knowledge of face perception, 3D shape perception, Matlab/R and three-dimensional computer graphics would all be advantages.  The scholarship is non taxable and worth AU $26,140 per annum.  Applicants from Australia and New Zealand pay no tuition fees and applicants from other countries will be able to apply for a waiver.  There will be opportunities for related research assistant work and for tutorial teaching.
