World Leading St. Andrews Scholarship in Vision and Camouflage

A fully funded PhD studentship is available, for students of any citizenship or residency, to work with Prof. Julie Harris and Dr. Justin Ales, on motion and camouflage, at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland.

Animals have evolved coloration that provides them with exquisite camouflage against complex backgrounds. But when an animal moves, camouflage is often thought to be effectively ‘broken’, with the animal becoming instantly visible. How can animals exploit the motion processing limitations of visual systems to adapt their own motion to reduce camouflage breaking, or even to exploit motion as a form of camouflage in itself?
