Research Associate Position in Multimodal Human Movement Analysis 

Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ 


The Arts, Media and Engineering Program (AME) (, at the Fulton School of Engineering and the 

Herberger College of Arts, at Arizona State University announces an opening for a research associate at the postdoctoral 

level in the area of multimodal human movement analysis. 


AME, a nationally leading program in the development of experiential media, has received an NSF infrastructure 

grant for the development of an Interdisciplinary Research Environment for Motion Analysis (IREMA). The goal of 

IREMA is to create multimodal sensing and feedback environments for human motion analysis and movementbased 

interactive applications. IREMA fully combines and facilitates movement related research in computer 

vision, human computer interaction, bioengineering, psychology, dance, sports medicine, professional training and 

education. Ongoing applications of IREMA research are in the areas of biofeedback for rehabilitation, interactive 

data navigation and mediated K-20 science education. Currently, IREMA infrastructure includes a marker-based 

16-camera Eagle system from Motion Analysis Corporation, a large area pressure sensitive floor developed by the 

program, video camera and microphone arrays, as well as various sets of inertial and physiological sensing devices. 

Interactive, surround image and sound as well as tangible feedback systems are integrated with the sensing 



The movement Research Associate appointee will be expected to contribute in the following ways: 

? Expand current work on computer vision based motion analysis 

? Develop algorithms and build multi-sensor fusion systems for the creation of customized, robust multimodal 

movement analysis: fusion of vision based motion analysis with RFID, pressure, inertial, audio, ultrasound and 

physiological sensors 

? Integrate multimodal movement sensing systems into large-scale interactive environments for rehabilitation, 

data navigation, interactive arts, and K-20 education. 


Required Qualifications: 

? Ph.D. in Computer Science or Electrical Engineering or closely related field with a proven research record in 

movement sensing and analysis. 


Desired Qualifications: 

? Working experience in developing vision-based movement sensing systems 

? Evidence of work in developing pattern recognition systems 

? Experience in multimodal movement sensing and sensor fusion 

? Strong theoretical and applied background in statistics, multiple view geometry, machine learning and pattern 


? Experience in research with interdisciplinary teams 

? Effective communication skills 

? Strong programming knowledge using C++ or Matlab 


This is a twelve month appointment, renewable annually for up to three years based on performance. The 

anticipated start date is August 16th, 2007. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience. For more 

information about this position please write to: 


Application Procedure: Please send a letter of interest, research statement consistent with areas of contribution 

listed above, CV, representative publications and other supporting materials and names, addresses and telephone 

numbers for three professional references to: Motion Analysis Research Associate Position, AME, P. O. Box 

878709, Tempe, Arizona 85287-8709, or email the application package directly to: 


Application Deadline: May 25, 2007; if not filled, every TWO weeks thereafter until the search is closed.
