About the Project

A PhD studentship is available at the University of Sussex in the groups of Prof. Christopher L Buckley and Prof. Anil K. Seth (Department of Informatics and Centre for Consciousness Science) on the EU-funded project entitled “A metapredictive model of synthetic awareness for enabling tool invention (METATOOL)”.

You will work within our labs which have expertise in the technical, theoretical, and experimental aspects of Bayesian approaches to cognition. This particular project will pursue an understanding of tool creation within the framework of active inference and predictive processing. It will involve theoretical development, computational models, and collaboration with roboticists. The successful candidate will come from a numerate background and have programming experience.
