Postgraduate Studentship in Multisensory Spatial Perception in Virtual Environments
Trinity College Dublin, School of Psychology and Institute of Neuroscience
Applications are invited for a 3-year Postgraduate studentship, starting October 2007, to investigate the factors that affect spatial perception in real and virtual environments. The research will focus on spatial perception and scene localisation across the main human senses. The candidate will join the Multisensory Cognition Group in the School of Psychology and Institute of Neuroscience, which is headed by Dr. Fiona Newell and currently comprises 3 post-doctoral researchers and 4 PhD students.
This is a role within a large, interdisciplinary team of researchers who are focussed on the development of the next generation of virtual scenes and environments for use in entertainment and computer games. The project is a multi-million Euro strategic initiative funded by Science Foundation Ireland and it builds on existing research in neuroscience and computer graphics here in Trinity College Dublin. The research will take place within Trinity College Dublin which is located in the heart of Dublin city. For more information please visitwww.tcd.ie and www.tcd.ie/Neuroscience.
Candidates must have an undergraduate degree in Psychology, Experimental Psychology, Cognitive Neuroscience, or equivalent at level II.1 or higher. They should have a keen interest in high-level perception and cognition, good research skills, and be a motivated team player. Computer programming skills and experience with graphic packages such as 3D Studio Max are desirable but not necessary.
The successful candidate will be awarded an annual stipend of €16,000 for 3 years (tax free), leading to a PhD qualification. Annual college fees, EU equivalent only, will also be paid (Non-EU candidates are also encouraged to apply but please note that the shortfall in College fees must be covered by the student themselves.) Enquires, and applications including a CV with the names and email addresses of two referees, should be sent to Dr. Jason S. Chan, Institute of Neuroscience, Lloyd Building, Trinity College Dublin, Dublin, Ireland. (email: Jason.Chan@tcd.ie).
