50 PhD studentships available at Nottingham Trent University, UK
Nottingham Trent University is offering over 50 fully-funded PhD studentships for UK, EU or international students in our core subject areas or key research themes. More details can be found here: https://www.ntu.ac.uk/c/phd-studentships. Research at NTU was awarded the 2015 Queens Anniversary Prize - the highest honour for a UK university - and 90% of our research was classed as world-leading, internationally excellent or internationally recognised in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework.
We would like to encourage applications to complete a PhD within the Perception, Attention and Memory Group. We are a vibrant research group investigating auditory, visual and temporal perception and attention, as well as conducting both theoretical and applied memory research. We have excellent facilities, including EEG, eye and motor tracking, TMS, driving simulators, sound booths and VR. Please visit our webpage for more information about our research and facilities. https://www.ntu.ac.uk/research/groups-and-centres/groups/perception-and-attention
We would like to encourage applications on any topic that aligns with our research interests, including the specific projects listed below. Please contact the researcher directly if you're interested in the topic and have a strong academic record.
