PhD Studentship in Driver behavior simulation (sponsored by Jaguar Cars)

Starting 1st March 2009, this International Postgraduate Research Studentship will fund an outstanding student for 3 years. Part-funded by Jaguar Cars, the research will broadly focus on driver distraction and vehicle automation, but within this there is scope for the student to pursue their own research ideas. The studentship is associated with the Safety Group at ITS, a multidisciplinary team encompassing psychologists and engineers, with potential to use our world-class driving simulator to support the PhD

We are particularly keen to hear from candidates with a background in Psychology, Engineering or Human Factors with an interest in carrying out behavioural studies. The collaboration with Jaguar Cars creates an exciting opportunity for the student to contribute to cutting-edge research with a practical application.

This studentship is a Dorothy Hodgkin Postgraduate Award, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council ( and Jaguar(

The award is part of a national initiative to bring outstanding students from India, Brazil, China, Hong Kong, Russia, South Africa and the developing world to the UK to study for PhD degrees in top-rated research environments. The eligible countries are those listed in Part 1 on the OECD website
