Brian Moore

Full-Time PhD Studentship (fully funded for Home/EU applicants) available from October 2012
Aston University ? School of Life and Health Sciences (Psychology)
Title: Auditory Grouping and Scene Analysis
Applications are invited for a three-year (i.e., full-time only) Research Studentship under the supervision of Professor Brian Roberts (Psychology Subject Group). The project will contribute to the research activities of the Sensory and Perceptual Systems Research Group in the School of Life and Health Sciences at Aston University, Birmingham, UK.
The Project:
In principle, any behavioural research (psychophysical, perceptual, cognitive methods) in the field of auditory grouping and scene analysis is permissible, using human listeners with normal hearing. There are many possibilities, but three areas which may prove particularly fruitful are: (1) the dynamics of auditory stream segregation; (2) the perceptual organization of speech; (3) the auditory continuity illusion. More information on the project, and on the research activities of the project supervisor, can be found on the homepage of Professor Roberts: http://www1.aston.ac.uk/lhs/staff/az-index/robertsb/
Informal enquiries to Professor Roberts are welcome and encouraged (email: b.roberts@xxxxxxxxxxx).
Full details of the formal requirements and application process can be found via ?Find A PhD? at: http://www.findaphd.com/search/ProjectDetails.aspx?PJID=38490&LID=52
