Postdoctoral Research Associate at FACESYNTAX
To make a leading contribution to to a large-scale research program focused on mathematically modelling culture-specific dynamic social face signals (i.e., combinations of face movements, 3D morphology, complexion) to build a generative, syntactical model of face signalling with transference to social robotics working with Prof. Rachael Jack. Specifically, the job requires expert knowledge in vision science, psychophysics, social perception, cultural psychology, dynamic social face signalling, reverse correlation techniques, MATLAB programming, computational methods, designing behavioural experiments, and human-robot interaction.
The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to the formulation and submission of research publications and research proposals as well as help manage and direct this complex and challenging project as opportunities allow.
This post is full time with funding up to 3 years in the first instance.
Name of supervisor: Prof. Rachael E. Jack
