A fully funded PhD studentship is available at Queen Mary, University of London (QMUL), in the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences, to work with Dr Isabelle Mareschal, and Dr Magda Osman to start in September 2018.
This project will examine the factors influencing judgments we make about other people, with a particular emphasis on decisions of innocence and guilt. The project will involve the use of conventional psychophysical techniques to perception, coupled with the use of an eye tracker. EEG recording is also possible and may be incorporated into the programme. We are thus seeking highly motivated candidates with a strong interest in psychology and perception. Some experience with Matlab (or other programming languages) is desirable.
Applications are invited from candidates with, or expecting to be awarded, a Masters degree in an area relevant to the project (e.g. experimental psychology, perception, cognitive psychology; computer science). The student will ideally have experience using Matlab (Psychtoolbox or PsychoPy), or other programing languages. This is a fully funded studentship that coves tuition fees and stipend (at the standard Research Councils UK rate (£16,553 in 2017/18) for three years. It is open to students of all nationalities. International students are required to provide evidence of their proficiency in English language skills. Informal enquiries about the project can be made by email to Dr. Isabelle Mareschal (i.mareschal at qmul.ac.uk<mailto:i.mareschal at qmul.ac.uk>).
Application deadline is February 7, 2018 at:
The lab is located in Queen Mary’s School of Biology and Chemistry, with strong ties to additional groups within Queen Mary, and with other UK and international institutions. Queen Mary is a Russell Group University, a college of the University of London and located in London’s vibrant East End (10 minutes bicycle ride to Tower Bridge; 10 minutes walking to Victoria Park).
