The successful candidate will join a team of colleagues working on the project which aims to gain empirically-supported insight into how complex layers of multimodal representations involving text, audio and image are received by viewers. Physiological and psychometric viewer data will be collected and triangulated with richly annotated multimodal corpus data captured from TV screens, and will be analysed in terms of cognitive and affective viewer responses in the framework of relevance theory.

For an eligible student, the full time studentship will cover fees and an annual stipend of approximately 16,000 euro (2013/2014 rate) for up to four years (PhD award).

Successful candidates should have excellent IT skills and be familiar with (or open to) mixed method approaches.

It is essential for applicants to have a native (or near-native) proficiency in the Japanese language. A masters level qualification is desirable.

Priority will be given to candidates with a background in Pragmatics (cognitive or experimental), Audiovisual Translation, or Corpus Linguistics .
