PhD Position: "EASTBIO Harnessing Artificial Intelligence to advance the study of Primate Intelligence"
University of St. Andrews & RZSS Edinburgh Zoo (United Kingdom)
In this PhD, you will develop techniques to use artificial intelligence to classify behaviour as monkeys complete different cognitive tasks, with a view to identifying signatures of cognitive states such as arousal, focussed attention, goal-directedness and explicit awareness. You will be based at the University of St Andrews’ Living Links to Human Evolution research centre at RZSS Edinburgh zoo. You will develop skills in designing and conducting cognitive experiments with non-human primates, as well as machine learning techniques for analysing video data.
