A PhD studentship is available in the Psychology faculty to study on an exciting new interdisciplinary project investigating social attention in humans and robots.
This project is a unique collaboration between experts in human and artificial system interactions which aims to answer a specific question: how do agents (people and robots) use their eyes to communicate during an interaction? Answering this question will help us test theories about cognition and development in humans and build better, “social” robots.
The student will be based in Psychology, working in a large and successful department (ranked 13th in the UK for research quality in REF 2014). Our Centre for Brain Science features excellent facilities for use in this project. They will also join our interdisciplinary team, working together with other students and academics from Computer Science and Electronic Engineering, which is a centre of excellence for robotics and brain-computer interaction.
Additional questions and queries should be addressed to Dr Tom Foulsham and Dr Dimitri Ognibene
Deadline: 12th March 2018
