Research in the School of Psychology falls broadly into three themes: (1) Perception & Attention, (2) Cognition, and (3) Social Cognition. We are looking to build upon our existing strengths in these domains, with a goal to model mechanisms of human interaction through the application of behavioural science, artificial intelligence and neuroscience techniques. To achieve this goal, we plan to expand the research techniques and approaches used within the School, particularly to encompass data science, machine learning, deep learning and computational modeling to advance psychological research. This expansion of research techniques will also lead to the development of new initiatives in data science and artificial intelligence. Candidates who can contribute to this future direction of the School are strongly encouraged to apply.
