The position is open to both UK/EU and international students*.<br>
<br>
Applications are invited for a 3-year fully funded inter-disciplinary PhD position under the supervision of Dr. Daniel Gill and Prof. Paul Sowden from the Department of Psychology, and Dr. Claire Ancient from the Department of Digital Futures. <br>
Our team is seeking a talented, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and highly motivated PhD student to take part in an exciting study that combines computational methods, clinical and behavioural and research techniques to study the effect of mental state on face
 perception. </font></span></p>
<p style="margin: 0px 0px 10.66px;"><span lang="EN-GB" style="margin: 0px;"><font face="Calibri"><font size="3">Research implies that the process of attending to emotionally expressive faces is susceptible to mood and mental state. The current project will
 investigate the explicit modifications of facial mental representations induced by mental states, in particular in depression and anxiety. The project will involve psychophysical and computational tools.
