PhD studentship in Computational Aspects of Face Recognition
Applications are invited for a PhD studentship starting in October 2013, 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 funding will cover UK/EU fees and a stipend at research council rates.
To apply, please send a CV and letter of application to Joanne Brebner, at the School of Psychology, University of Aberdeen, (firstname.lastname@example.org). Informal enquiries prior to application may be made to Mike Burton: email@example.com or 01224 273930. The closing date is 9 August, 2013.
Further Information: This studentship is part of a large-scale project on face recognition. We will be studying the way in which faces become familiar, specifically by examining the variance among different images of the same face. The student will focus on computational modelling of the statistical properties of face images, and will work within a team employing both simulation and experimental methods. Programming experience is essential, and experience in image processing would be an advantage.
