Specialty Areas: Cognitive Science; Empirical Modeling of Eye Movements


Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a vacant PhD
scholarship in empirical modeling of eye movements in reading, writing and

Considerable progress has been made in eye-tracking technology over the
past decade, allowing to capture gaze behavior with free head movements
during reading. However, the imprecision of the measured signal makes it
difficult to analyze the eye-gaze movement in reading tasks where a precise
local resolution of the gaze samples is required to track the reader's gaze
path over a text. The PhD position will investigate methods to cancel out the
noise from the gaze signal. The PhD candidate will investigate, design and
implement empirically-based models of eye-gaze movements in reading
which take into account physical properties of the visual system in addition to
background information, such as the purpose of the reading activity, the
structure of the text, the quality of the gaze signal, etc.

The PhD candidate should have:
- an interest in cognitive modeling of human reading, writing and translation
- a basic understanding of browser and eye-tracking technology
- knowledge of probability theory and statistical modeling advanced
programming skills

The PhD position is offered at the Department of International Business
Communication at the Copenhagen Business School (CBS). The Department
