​***We still have a few admission spots open! Deadline is March 1st.***

The Perception Action Cognition (PAC) Lab is looking for new graduate students for a starting date of August 2024.

What I am looking for in a graduate student is a dedicated, highly motivated person with excellent quantitative and behavioral statistics skills. Minimally, I require from the candidate to express the willingness to learn some of the essential computing tools such as MATLAB, R, python and others. Our lab works with Oculus VR systems, Pupil Labs eye tracker, 3D printers and scanners.

The successful applicant will receive a full paid assistantship (with a tuition waiver) that is renewable every year for 5 years.

The deadline for applications is March 1, 2024. As part of the application package we require the submission of official university transcripts, English language test scores (for international applicants), statement of research interests, and 3 recommendation letters.
