Fully Funded PhD Studentship at the University of Winchester, UK
The position is open to both UK/EU and international students

Face and voice perception – towards an understanding of multimodal processing of emotion.

Applications are invited for a 3-year, fully funded PhD position under the supervision of Prof. Maria Uther, Dr. Daniel Gill and Dr. Jordan Randell.

Our research group is seeking a PhD student to take part in an exciting study of multimodal processing of emotion. The project is led by Prof. Uther (voice perception), Dr. Gill (face perception) and Dr. Jordan Randell (emotions and experimental methods) in the Department of Psychology.
Research on detection of emotion has historically focused on single modality (face or voices). However, a PhD would provide an ideal opportunity to explore the complementarity of visual (face) and auditory (voice) input in the perception of emotions and the interaction of information from both modalities.  The project will involve innovative EEG/ERP and behavioural methods. Previous experience in EEG/ERP studies is not necessary. Training in computational and neuroscientific approaches would allow the student to develop practical and technical skills in this field.

 - Master degree in Psychology, Cognitive Science, Neuroscience, Biology, Computer Science, Statistics or related disciplines with excellent results.
- Fluency in English
For further instructions prospective students are required to contact Prof. Uther (maria.uther at winchester.ac.uk) or Dr. Gill (daniel.gill at winchester.ac.uk) by email no later than May 10th, 2017.
