PhD studentship in Face Recognition
Applications are invited for a PhD studentship to work with Professor Mike Burton. Candidates should hold a First or Upper Second class degree in Psychology, Computing Science, or a related subject. The studentship is funded by the European Research Council, and will cover three years’ fees and stipend for UK/EU students only.
To apply, please send a CV and letter of application to Joanne Brebner, at the School of Psychology, University of Aberdeen. Informal enquiries prior to application may be made to Mike Burton: firstname.lastname@example.org or 01224 273930. The closing date is 31 January 2014.
Further Information: This studentship is part of a large-scale project on face recognition. We are studying the ways in which faces become familiar, specifically by examining the variability among different images of the same face. The student will work within a team employing both experimental and computer simulation techniques, and so some programming experience would be an advantage. The conditions of funding require that this studentship must start on or before 1 June 2014.
