Fully funded PhD positions in vision and touch: perception and rendering of different materials.

We invite applications from enthusiastic and capable students who would like to pursue a PhD in visual or visual-haptic perception or rendering. We have eleven generously funded PhD positions open in nine different labs across Europe, supported by a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action – Innovative Training Network (MSCA-ITN/ETN). We invite applications from enthusiastic and capable students who would like to pursue a PhD in visual or visual-haptic perception or rendering.

 

The positions are designed to encourage intersectoral and international collaboration and secondments. Each PhD position requires a move from another country. For example, to take a PhD position in Germany, you must not have lived in Germany for more than 12 months in the last 3 years. Applications from all over the world are welcome. Please see attached flyer and DyViTo website for more details.

 

The researcher based in Bilkent will focus on developing and testing advanced fMRI techniques, e.g. high-temporal and spatial resolution imaging, and applying these techniques to investigate nueronal activity during visual perception. Particularly we are interested in characterizing connectivity patterns and temporal dynamics in visual cortex underlying contextual influences using fMRI, behavioral experiments and computational modeling.
