Competition Funded PhD Project: Computing the Face Syntax of Facial Communication, Institute of Neuroscience & Psychology, University of Glasgow, Scotland

This ambitious project aims to mathematically model the human face as an algebraic generator of dynamic social signals and build a psychologically and culturally valid generative model of social face signalling that is transferable to social robots. The project will use a multidisciplinary approach that combines social and cultural psychology with dynamic 3D structural face computer graphics, vision science psychophysical methods, and mathematical psychology. As the project involves interdisciplinary knowledge and skills the ideal candidate would have experience of both computational (e.g., programming) and social psychology, for example via a joint degree or research experience/interests.

Application deadline is the 30th of June 2021.
