PhD in Psychology Perception of Auditory Space and Motion

Outstanding international students are invited to apply for a PhD scholarship in acoustics at Cardiff University. Applicants should apply before November 18, 2018.

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship to study the perception of auditory space and motion, with potential to generalise to audiovisual integration.

You will join a team of auditory and vision scientists interested in understanding how active perceivers look and listen while moving. Working alongside Tom Freeman (vision science) and John Culling (psychoacoustics), you will join a team (2PIs, 2 post-docs, 2 PhD students) investigating how auditory, visual and audiovisual space and motion is recovered during head and eye movement.

The lab is built around state-of-the-art auditory presentation (48 channel speaker array), VR (Oculus Rift) and motion tracking (magnetic motion sensing, VR headset, eye tracking). Other work in the lab includes research on room acoustics, speech in noise, cochlear implant users, and Bayesian models of perception.

The studentship is funded by the Leverhulme Trust as part of a project entitled "Active audiovisual perception: Listening and looking while moving."
