This interdisciplinary research is at the intersection of areas such as computer science, engineering, linguistics, psychology, and neuroscience. Candidates from various disciplines can apply, as long as you are excited about learning! Studying the human brain is fascinating. There is so much we don’t know yet. And there are many reasons for carrying out this line of research, from simple curiosity to developing future diagnostic tools and therapies.

The project will investigate how our brains learn the statistical patterns of the sensory world, a phenomenon that is thought to be at the very foundation of human perception. We will focus on realistic scenarios involving speech and music listening, as it remains unclear if the two processes are underpinned by the same fundamental statistical processing principles.

Trinity College Dublin is a fantastic place for studying and working. It’s in the city centre of Ireland’s vibrant capital city. Irish people are really friendly and Dublin has a large international community. And the Irish countryside is just beautiful.
