Project Description

Applications are invited for a funded full-time three year PhD in Artificial Intelligence or Cognitive Science (stipend and fees). The PhD will be supervised by Professor Peter Cheng and will be associated with the EPSRC project entitled ‘Automating Representation Choice for AI Tools’ (Rep2Rep). The project is developing techniques for the selection representations tailored both to the abilities of individual users and to the characteristics of problems. Thus it includes developments on the following: methods for the measurement of representation competency; tools for modelling and designing notational and diagrammatic systems; components for diagrammatic intelligent tutoring systems; and diagrammatic notations for logic. The PhD research topic will be focused in one of the these areas depending on the interests and skills of the student.

The successful applicant will join an enthusiastic team of researchers with expertise in representational systems, cognitive learning analytics, cognitive experiments, eye-movement recording, verbal and graphical protocol analysis, computational cognitive modelling, tactile interaction, AI and diagrams, and tutoring system design.

You should have (or be about to obtain) a strong 2:1 degree or an MSc in cognitive science/psychology, computer science/AI, or human computer interaction and be able demonstrate a genuine interest in cognitive science and AI research. The School of Engineering and Informatics and the University’s Doctoral School provides an extensive range of training courses to support doctoral researchers successful completion of their degrees.

The start date of the PhD is September 2020.

The RepSys Lab is one of four laboratories in the Creative Technology Group within the Department of Informatics. RepSys web pages can be found here: http://users.sussex.ac.uk/~peterch/ and the Rep2Rep project web pages are here: https://sites.google.com/site/myrep2rep/home.
