Vacancies: PhD in Computer Vision and Image Processing, Heriot Watt University


Contact: M.J.Chantler@hw.ac.uk


Vacancies: PhD in Computer Vision and Image Processing, 12,600 (Britsh pounds) annual living allowance, fees paid.

Keywords: computer vision, image processing, 3-D texture, photometric stereo.

Applications are invited for funded PhD studentships in Image Processing and Computer Vision within the Texture Lab. in the School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences at Heriot-Watt  University, Edinburgh.


The Texture Lab. (http://www.cee.hw.ac.uk/texturelab) which was established in 1994, carries out world leading research into the capture, retrieval, visualisation and human interpretation of 3-D surface texture. The lab specialises in the use of 3D surface information obtained using photometric stereo, and programmable graphics shader technology, to directly analyse, synthesise and visualise a wide range of surface textures.

The lab. was recently responsible for forming out the award winning spinout TotoallyTextures Ltd (http://www.totallytextures.com/). 

The lab's staff and PhD students have a unique blend of expertise in computer vision, advanced 3D graphics and psychophysics.

The student would work alongside staff employed on the EPSRC funded PerTex project (http://gow.epsrc.ac.uk/ViewGrant.aspx?GrantRef=EP/D059364/1) and a Marie-Curie fellow who has recently joined the group. The project would have similar goals to PerTex.
