Good afternoon - I would be grateful if the following could be posted:

PhD scholarships in emotional expression processing (Ottmar Lipp, Curtin University, Australia)

Up to 2 PhD scholarships are available for research on topics related to an ARC funded project entitled 'The emotional face: Effects on orienting, visual search, and categorization'. Using a range of converging methodologies drawn from neuroscience, social, and cognitive psychology, the project will advance our understanding of the processing of the expressions of two central social emotions, happiness and anger, by delineating the conditions that support or limit emotional expression processing in the general population. This research will provide an invaluable knowledge base for subsequent applied research into deficits of emotional expression processing such as occur in autism, anxiety, or old age.

The successful applicants will be based in the Emotion, Learning, and Psychophysiology Laboratory led by Professor Ottmar Lipp and located in the School of Psychology and Speech Pathology, Curtin University, Perth, WA, Australia. The laboratory facilities enable research using psychophysiological (EEG, EMG, autonomic nervous system) and behavioural (eye movements, response time) methodologies. Applicants with experience using these methodologies are encouraged to apply.

The successful candidate(s) will receive a stipend of AUS$25,849 per annum which will be indexed for the duration of the award. This scholarship will be for three years with a possible maximum extension of up to six months. If the successful candidate is an international student, the scholarship will cover the tuition fees for the duration of the award. The successful candidate is expected to commence in early 2015.

Eligibility Criteria:
First class honours (or equivalent) in Psychology;
Experience in experimental and quantitative methodology;
Strong verbal and written communication skills;
High level of motivation and ability to work in teams.
Experience with psychophysiological methodologies (EEG, ERP, facial EMG) or eye tracking
Experience in experimental programming

Submit expressions of interest with a statement addressing the eligibility criteria, a full CV, and contact details of two referees to
