About the Project

We are seeking applicants for a cotutelle MRes+PhD studentship to study the problem of converting text to speech. The project will aim to develop and test a new computational model of reading aloud. Experimental tests will examine whether this model can read words and nonwords similarly to skilled adult readers. The project will be jointly supervised by Prof. Anne Castles at Macquarie University and Prof Colin Davis at the University of Bristol (UK).

The successful student will spend the first half of their project at the University of Bristol and the second half at Macquarie University. The successful candidate will have, by the time of commencement:

- A first or upper second-class honours degree (or equivalent) in Psychology, Computer Science,
Mathematics, Physics or a related discipline.
