Dear All,

*Apologies for cross-posting*

We are pleased to announce an opportunity for a funded tax-free Ph.D.
studentship about (*Multimodal AI-based diagnosis of Autism Spectrum
Disorder*) at the Center for Robotics and Neural Systems (CRNS) at Plymouth
University, UK. The closing date for applications is *12 noon on 10 March
2023*. *Strong candidates will be waived all fees of the doctoral college*.

The main objective of this project is to (1) develop a multimodal deep
learning model that can learn from features characterizing the behavior of
persons with ASD to assist in accurate diagnosis. To this end, the other
objectives are; (2) conduct experiments to collect multimodal data (e.g.,
visual and audio data, social signals, and EEG measures) during interaction
with peers, professionals, and social robots to study the effects of using
multimodal data on ASD diagnosis, and to investigate the
inter-relationships between features in different modalities, and (3)
investigate features that characterize severity levels on the autism
spectrum (from mild to severe levels) (*more details and research questions
are available in the link below*).
More details *about the topic *or *how to apply *are available at:

Multimodal AI-based diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
PhD postgraduate research studentship: Multimodal AI-based Diagnosis of
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Applications are invited for a 3.5-year
