NSF-IGERT Graduate Traineeships in Perceptual Science


Rutgers University is offering Graduate Traineeships in Interdisciplinary Perceptual Science, funded by a National Science Foundation IGERT grant (Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship).

Interdisciplinary Perceptual Science combines computer modeling with experimental and theoretical studies of human perception.

The training program is intended mainly for students entering doctoral programs in Psychology, Computer Science, Engineering,or Cognitive Science.

Why Study Interdisciplinary Perceptual Science?

Perceptual technologies range from automated systems that recognize faces, voices or 3D scenes, to dynamic multimodal interfaces and realistic virtual environments. As Perceptual Scientists, we recognize the need to develop comprehensive perceptual models, applicable to humans and implemented in machines.

The IGERT in Perceptual Science integrates research projects in more than 18 different laboratories. IGERT students learn to use a broad array of approaches, skills, and methods to achieve a better understanding of human perception and perceptual models, and to design innovative perceptual technologies that address significant human needs.

Core Curriculum in Perceptual Science

The Core Curriculum in Perceptual Science offers interdisciplinary courses and research activities in perceptual science for IGERT students and for interested students enrolled in one of the participating Ph.D. programs.
