There are funds available for a PhD position within the Department of
Engineering at the University of Bristol. Applicants interested in
tactile robotics should apply through Dr Nathan Lepora no later than
Thursday 27th February.

The studentship covers tuition fees and provides a maintenance stipend
of around £13800 per year.

The project is on the interface of computational neuroscience and
robotics, using principles of how humans and animals make perceptual
decisions to improve the state of the art in robotic tactile
perception.

Eligibility
Please note that the studentship is only available to UK Nationals or
EU nationals who have been resident in the UK for the past 3 or more
years. EU nationals outside these criteria may also apply, but only
tuition fees (not the stipend) are covered.
*** Candidates from countries outside the EU ARE NOT eligible. ***

Candidates should possess a good honours degree in Computer Science,
Engineering, Mathematics, Physics or a related numerate discipline,
and have strong mathematical and programming skills. Previous
experience in robotics or computational neuroscience would be an
advantage but not essential. A recognised English language
qualification is required if English is not your first language.

Application
Please send your CV to Dr Nathan Lepora, Dept of Engineering
Mathematics, University of Bristol n.lepora at bristol.ac.uk no later
than Thursday 27th February, and earlier if possible.
