I am looking for a talented candidate for a ph.d.-project in Food Psychology – Perception & Decision-Making. The project will be part of an extention of ongoing research in perception and memory into food psychology, and there is a potential to develop own ideas within the general framework and help build the new research space. Also, the funding scheme is from the Sino-Danish Center and is part of a strategic effort to consolidate Danish Chinese collaborations.
We currently have an opening for a ph.d.-student in our lab in a project investigating synaesthesia and expertise. The position is a three year position at Aalborg University, with strong collaborations in Iceland, China, and the US.
For more information and to apply please see (advertisement here).
The application deadline has been extended to February 1st 2017.
Form the 1st of January I am starting to work on my ph.d. project on the nature of the capacity limitations of visual short-term memory. Basically, I will continue the work started in my master thesis and expand on the basic ideas briefly described in that project.
I would like to have student assistants (this is usually on volunteer basis) on the project, so if you are interested please contact me – my own interests where originally sparked by being a student helper on ph.d. projects by Morten Overgaard and Søren Kyllingsbæk.
The main areas I will be working on – at least from my current perspective – will be the following:
- Visual Short-Term Memory
- Visual Long-Term Memory
- Memory Capacity
- Visual Representations and Categories
- Early processes in TVA
If you find any of these areas interesting and would like to assist in a research project, feel free to contact me – I am interested in students on all levels – whether you are working on your master thesis or you are a first year student.
During this month I will prepare for the project startup so that I can be ready for the real startup in January – this project will be running over the next three years and you can choose to join in on different parts of it if you like.
