What: PhD positions are available in Professor Wendy Adams’ lab, at the University of Southampton, UK.  We study how humans use visual or visual-haptic information to understand the 3D structure and material properties of objects and scenes. We use a combination of lab-based behavioural studies and computational modelling.

The positions are funded by ESRC studentships, which cover all tuition fees and provide an annual, tax-free maintenance grant.
