The University of Hull is offering a full-time UK/EU Ph.D. Scholarship or International Fees Bursary for a candidate applying for the following project.
The studentship will start on 28th May 2019
Our Learning in Virtual Environments research cluster is exploring how user experience in immersive virtual reality (VR) affects cognition, perception and emotional state during learning. This interdisciplinary project embraces, cognitive load theory, encephalography (EEG), medical engineering and VR environments to generate new models of cognitive processes.
Summary of Ph.D. Project
Supervised by Professor Stewart Martin, School of Education.
Applicants are asked to submit an outline research proposal addressing the question of how immersive VR environments may be used to measure and enhance learning and advance research in the field. The successful student will join a research team in developing metrics to explore and measure cognitive load during learning activity in virtual reality settings and will participate in experimental work, data collection and analysis. The student will be expected to work within an interdisciplinary research cluster comprising colleagues from Education, Engineering and the Hull York Medical School.
Applicants for the project should have a 1st class undergraduate degree and Masters level qualification in psychology / education / biomedical sciences / engineering or related disciplines, together with relevant research experience. A 2:1 may be considered, if combined with relevant experience.
Full-time UK/EU and International PhD Scholarships will include fees at the ‘home/EU' student rate and maintenance (£14,777 in 2018/19) for three years, depending on satisfactory progress.
PhD students at the University of Hull follow modules for research and transferable skills development and gain a Masters level Certificate, or Diploma, in Research Training, in addition to their research degree.
Successful applicants will be informed of the award as soon as possible and by 24th May at the latest.
