PhD studentship in attention and neuroimaging at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, University College London

Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD studentship at UCL, Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience under the supervision of Prof Nilli Lavie. The PhD research is funded by Jaguar Land Rover as part of the new program (jointly with the EPSRC) to develop fully autonomous cars: Towards Autonomy - Smart and Connected Control (TASCC):https://www.epsrc.ac.uk/newsevents/news/jlrannouncesautonomousvehicalresearchprogramme/ For more information about our CogShift project see also:

The research would involve neurimaging (e.g. fMRI, MEG) studies of attention and visual perception and would include pattern classification of brain responses to tasks using multivariate pattern recognition in neuroimaging methods. The PhD would be based in the UCL Attention and Cognitive Control lab directed by Nilli Lavie at UCL. The research will involve collaboration with other researchers in the attention lab who will be using machine learning to model attention. For more information visit the lab website:http://www.icn.ucl.ac.uk/lavielab

The PhD is funded for four years and can start as soon as a suitable candidate is selected. The studentship provides four years of fees at the UCL *UK/EU rate *(for which only UK or EU nationals are eligible), four years of stipend at standard EPSRC rates, as well as research costs and travel allowance. Applicants should have a first-class degree in a relevant discipline (e.g., psychology, cognitive neuroscience, computational neuroscience). Knowledge or experience (in neuroimaging analysis) and an MSc in a relevant subject are highly desirable. The PhD work would require strong programming skills (e.g. in Matlab, C/C++) as well as strong written and verbal communication skills.


Applicants are invited to apply by e-mail to rosalyn.lawrence@ucl.ac.uk attaching both a CV and a supplementary personal statement explaining why they wish to apply for this studentship. The CV must state the degree class achieved and the current average grade. The CV should also include the name and contacts for two academic references, who may be approached at the interview stage. 


The closing date for receipt of applications is April 28, 2016.
