Applications are invited for the above post to work with Professor Alan Johnston, Professor Paul McGraw and Dr Neil Roach on a Leverhulme Trust funded project entitled “An adaptable geometry for visual space perception”. The project will use psychophysical methods to investigate the fundamental question of how we gain a sense of spatial dimension. We will exploit adaptation paradigms that alter the perception of visual spatial separation, size and regularity, supported by computational modelling.

Candidates should have a completed or submitted PhD in Visual Perception or a related discipline by the time of appointment and have a first class or high 2.1 undergraduate degree in Psychology or related discipline. The ideal candidate will have excellent knowledge of psychophysical methods, good programming and data analysis skills and an interest in applying mathematical concepts to vision science.

The successful candidate will join one of the largest and most vibrant vision groups in the UK. The School has a number of well-resourced psychophysics labs as well as access to world leading brain imaging facilities. The School also hosts a Computational Neuroscience Research group bridging Psychology and Mathematics. The School is located in the attractive University Park campus, with an adjacent tram stop allowing easy access to the city of Nottingham.

This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for a period of 17 Months. Hours of work are full time (36.25 hours). Job share arrangements may be considered.
