EPSRC-funded Post-doctoral Fellowship, VR lab
12-month EPSRC-funded Post-doctoral Fellowship

School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences, University of Reading

  • A post-doc postion is available in the Virtual Reality lab in Reading to study the representation of object location and the perception of visual stability in freely-moving human observers. This EPSRC project uses psychophysical experiments and modelling to distinguish between the predictions of view-based and 3D reconstruction hypotheses.

  • The University of Reading is already known for high-fidelity virtual reality research and is developing as a centre for multi-modal VR. The lab collaborates Systems Engineering, including Professor William Harwin - expert in haptic robotics - and Dr Peter Scarfe is setting up a visual-haptic laboratory.

  • This post comprises the last year of a 3 year EPSRC project. The successful candidate would be involved in the application process for further funding.

  • Candidates should have a PhD in psychology, neuroscience or similar; a candidate with a PhD in a numerate discipline with an enthusiasm to learn about neuroscience would also be considered. Programming experience is essential (e.g MATLAB). The start date is 1/8/15 although with EPSRC agreement this may be flexible.

  • To apply see the jobs.ac.uk advert or the University of Reading jobs.

  • Contact: Professor Andrew Glennerster
