PhD Studentship on Human Robot Interaction

A 3-year PhD studentship is available as part of the new H2020 collaborative project “MoveCare: Multiple-actors Virtual Empathic Caregiver for the Elder”. The candidate will carry out interdisciplinary research on human robot interaction (HRI) for the design of a multimodal robot interface for the elderly and the testing during HRI experiments. The student will be supervised by Professor Ray Jones (School of Nursing and Midwifery) and Professor Angelo Cangelosi (School of Computing, Electronics and Mathematics).

The studentship is supported for 3 years and includes full Home/EU tuition fees plus a stipend of £14,057 per annum. The studentship will only fully fund those applicants who are eligible for Home/EU fees with relevant qualifications. Applicants normally required to cover overseas fees will have to cover the difference between the Home/EU and the overseas tuition fee rates (approximately £11,040 per annum).
For further information contact Professor Ray Jones (ray.jones at plymouth.ac.uk)<mailto:ray.jones at plymouth.ac.uk)> and Professor Angelo Cangelosi (acangelosi at plymouth.ac.uk)<mailto:acangelosi at plymouth.ac.uk)>. Background information on the supervisors’ research profiles can be found on Plymouth University website.
Applicants must have a first degree in computer science, robotics, cognitive science or related discipline. A Masters level degree in the same disciplines is a desirable criterion. Good programming skills is also an essential requirement. Applicants with knowledge, and/or previous research experience, on human-robot interaction or experiments for the elderly are particularly encouraged to apply.
